Monday morning my Grandmother turns 88. So, this weekend the boys will be busy making some cards for her. We are just starting a study on owls which coincided nicely with the birth of Molly's babies.
Next week we will be having some fun dissecting owl pellets. I love dissecting owl pellets and I realized (while ordering science supplies this fall from Homeschool Science Supplies) they had never done it. We have a ton of library books to read.
We broke out this really fun art spinner kit. I remember doing this type of thing as a child. I had purchased it at Christmas time. But, I guess it got shoved to the back of the kids closet. They didn't seem interested in it. This past weekend E got super duper bored and broke it out in desperation. Needless to say, everyone had a blast.
In PE we ran the track.
In water PE, we played water polo.
I multiplied In math.
In Handwriting, I'm writing cursive.
I played bowling scooters. I put myself on the scooter. I pushed myself into the bowling pins.
We read books outside in the sunshine. We read about the five senses. We closed our eyes and we can hear stuff louder. We heard people and animals. We heard birds and a frog.
I watched owls on a live webcam this week http://www.sportsmansparadiseonline.com/Live_Owl_Nest_Box_Cam.html
At the YMCA i walked on the track in P.E. and in water P.E. I played water polo.
I did a outline of my history encyclopedia on the industrial revolution.
I did math and handwriting.
I have some pictures, but the husband keeps running away with the camera. I guess it's probably time to get my own camera or he his own camera...which ever fits. My phone takes ok pictures...but I have some strange guilt about taking less than perfect pictures. But, isn't a mediocre picture of our kids better than none at all. I have some of the goofiest pictures of my childhood and they are such great little treasure. I don't need a million perfectly crafted and scrapbooked pics.
