The last two weeks were very, very chaotic. We had so many things going on and not near enough time in the day.
Nathan is two lessons behind on math. We’ll catch those up this weekend. I’m not worried too much. He has flown through these last two or three chapters.
He is several more lessons behind on language arts. We will work on getting caught back up next week.
Because things were so crazy here, we didn’t start the ABC unit. We have, however, continued on with the human anatomy unit. We finished up all the books we checked out of the library this past weekend. Now we are going to look a little more in depth into each system of the body and work on a lapbook as we go.
I have to share this cute little funny about my 4 yr old son. Daddy has been working out of town here lately and came home Tuesday afternoon. All four boys were so excited to see him! After dinner, he sat down and both my 4 yr old and 2 yr old boys jumped up into his lap. As my 2 yr old was giving Daddy one of his super special loving but suffocating hugs, Daddy laughed a little and said “Gabriel! I can’t breathe.” Kaleb, 4 yr old, yelled at Gabriel “get off of Daddy!! Get off!!” Daddy told Kaleb that it was ok, but Kaleb said ” no it isn’t. We learned that if you have to breathe to live and I don’t want you to die!” He was right. We had just talked about how the lungs work and why we need to breathe. Now we apparently need to teach him about figurative speech. lol
I’m also putting together a St Patrick’s Day lapbook. There are so many cute ideas online! The boys will LOVE it!
I have also been working on next year’s history schedule. I am almost finished with the first quarter. I finally decided on Mystery of History 1, SOTW 1, and Usborne’s Encyclopedia of World History. I’m working on tying it all together with the bible, getting a list of readers for Nathan and read alouds, and putting together some little art projects to make it fun.
All suggestions for ancient history readers are more than welcome!!!
So that’s our week. Next week will be boring again (I think I prefer boring…we accomplish so much more), and then the following week will be short. The boys and I are planning a trip up north to visit with some family. Hopefully we’ll leave here on Thursday and come back on Monday.
March 26 is my baby boy’s first birthday! Busy end of the month!! We need to get much accomplished next week.
Hope you all have a great weekend!!!
