This week flew by! As I wrapped up school on Friday, it felt like Monday’s planning had only just happened. What a week!
Emma’s school was a bit haphazard this week, but we studied the letter N—noodles, necklace, nest, nose. She made a nice noodle necklace, which she dearly loves and has requested to wear to church on Sunday. She also counted to 100 with only minor assistance! When we started the year, she could count to 12. We read Corduroy twice—I think we’ll give him another try next week.
On Tuesday night, we had to take Seth to Urgent Care, which completely wiped me out. We left as snow was beginning to fall, which meant that Wednesday was…a snow day! Sort of. Can you have a snow day when you homeschool and technically live at school? We had school on Wednesday but started the morning by enjoying the little bit of snow that was on the ground. I was glad we actually went out in the morning, because it was gone by afternoon!
Thursday was a tough day all around and really made me thankful for the easier days we’ve been having and did have on Friday!
The big kids and I studied New Zealand in history this week. Looking at pictures made me want to go visit such a beautiful place!
In science, we began our study of elements by constructing the first ten elements out of marshmallows! Emma joined us for the lesson, barely restraining her giddy excitement as she counted out protons (pink marshmallows) for the models. The science nerd in me is enjoying getting back into this kind of information. Everyone enjoyed eating a proton, neutron, and electron when the lesson was over!
Vernon and Brooklyn both finished a level of All About Spelling this week! They are always excited to put the last sticker on their chart, receive cheers and a certificate, and open the next book! I’m telling you, this spelling program is amazing.
I’m looking forward to a Saturday morning break after this busy week!
