Week 2: A lot of little fun things for the past few weeks.

All things fun over the past few weeks called week 2! 

We have been taking it slowly and one day at a time.  Sometimes getting in a full school day and other times just a little here and there.  We kept up with the three R's this past week and now I'm looking forward to adding science, art, Spanish, morning circle, and the rest to our schedule in the next few weeks.  Next week we will add science, art, and morning circle.  Spanish will be added once co-op starts and the rest (mostly AO extras) as time goes on.

The last few weeks have been filled with one more VBS, a Justin Bieber concert, play dates, pool parties, and just a lot of end-of-the-summer fun!!  We have been SO busy but have had so much fun.  I haven't taken many pictures of our adventures.  Most were very mommy hands-on (like swimming) so the camera stayed at home.  It's been great but we are all ready to settle down to a regular daily schedule.

We focused on getting those three R's done every day this week and we did great!  We took off Thursday to attend our homeschool group's Not Back To School pool!  Nathan and Kaleb are working hard and doing great.  Gabriel and Drake want to do *school work* more and more.  Thank goodness I took the time this summer to organize all of their preschool activity bags and other little games.  They have been having fun with their own schoolwork.  Gabriel surprised me this week by tracing {very well} numbers 1-15 and the letter Aa.  He did a GREAT job!  We definitely will keep working on that since he shows a HUGE interest and is doing so well!

Week 2 is all about the pictures so.........Enjoy!

This is a special pencil!!  Besides being Star Wars, Daddy used this pencil when he was in school.  It was put in a box of art supplies that we found in Grandma's attic a few weeks ago.  So Kaleb used a pencil for schoolwork that his daddy used for schoolwork too!

Justin Bieber concert with friends!

See you next week! :)
