They completed 4 lessons in their Horizons math books.
|A working on his Math|
All the kids enjoyed making wooden spoon puppets this week.
|A and I working hard|
|H working on his, C took a break to talk to Uncle long distance for a few minutes|
H also started working on his Johnny Appleseed Lapbook from Homeschool Share. In addition to the new theme I finished off a couple pages from her Princess lapbook and we assembled it.
H had a break through in OPGTR and finally finished lesson 53. Onto the 54 and the new section next week.
In addition to our new theme they enjoyed watching the 2 new Leap frog videos we picked up this week. Numbers Ahoy and Alphabet Amusement Park . They watched these videos over and over this week. The fall shapes lacing cards were also a big hit.
For Physical activity this week the kids were riding bikes. Even H with his broken leg got in on it. He is allowed to ride bikes per his Dr because it is non-weight bearing and helps strengthen his leg. As long as he wants to ride we permit him to, though it seems crazy to see him on a bike with a big air cast.
Lastly, this week marked the start of Girl Guides for C and for 4-H MultiClub for A and C, and kids church/youth group for all 4 kids as well as my bible study. We also completed the registrations for the rest of their extra curriculars. It looks like this year A, C and I will be in cross country skiing, when H's cast comes off he and I will join as well, A will be is Scouts, H in Cubs, C in Guides, A& C will be in 3 different 4-H clubs, all 4 in kids church/youth group and possibly A & C in Tae Kwon Do but we will see about that. It will be a very full fall/winter, but everything will begin to taper off in March/April and then we will be ready to take it easy for the spring.
