I'm loving these last few weeks! I'm going to sound like a broken record, but Nathan is doing SO well in math and Kaleb is doing SO well in phonics! Great weeks!! All three have been short weeks, though.
We started co-op on the first Friday of the month. It has been pretty fun so far!! The boys actually missed last Friday due to a short stomach bug. Daddy watched them while I taught my class and then we snuggled on the couch for the rest of the day.
Kaleb participated in our homeschool group's history fair this month. It was a lot of fun for him. He didn't place, but still learned a lot about his topic and the history fair process. He is already planning for the science fair in the fall.
This week was crazy. My mom got sick and had to come stay with us for three days. The boys were crazy with her watching from the couch. She, being used to the peace and quiet at her house, didn't get much rest. She did, however, get many hugs, I love you's, and watch this Nana's.
The boys are loving their co-op classes! Nathan did drop the horses class. It turns out most of the students were girls and about half his age. The whole class was a little young for him so he will spend his last co-op hour practicing the guitar. He has really taken to it. He was playing a pretty little something today and I asked the name of the song. He said he was just playing. I was a little blown away. After co-op, I will definitely have to find somewhere for him to continue lessons or maybe he'll be far enough along to teach himself. Kaleb loves his classes, especially the worms class. Gabriel is enjoying the animals class. They learn about a different animal each week. Of course the play-doh class and building blocks class are big hits as well.
School work at home continues along at a decent pace. This week was a little off, but we did get a good amount of work completely. I have slacked in my organization and it is beginning to show. Honestly I haven't even kept track of what has been done. We have been literally just *doing the next thing*. I'm going to get back on track for next week. We get more accomplished and I feel more relaxed when everything is planned.
Kind of some crazy smiles, huh? Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend!!
