I asked Buster what he wanted to do next and he said Sharks. I found a free lapbook for that also, so that's what we're doing next. http://www.homeschoolshare.com/sharks.php

We had another great week of totschool and here are some of the things we did:
Music time! The girls love these instruments from first act, and spend a lot of time playing with them.
Playing little people animals.
Sweetpea got these paper dolls for her birthday and I finally popped them out for her. This is her first time playing with paper dolls, and she loved them.
She has her letters pretty well down so we started focusing on numbers 1-5. I made these wheels for her. First she put stickers on to match the numbers.
Then she put clothes pins on. Sweetpea really enjoyed this activity.
Coloring her number one sheet.
Practicing her name.
Here she is making a penguin book for her penguin lapbook.
Reading quiet time.
I made up this P for penguin craft last week and the kids really enjoyed it.

My husband's Pa passed on last night. We are saddened by the loss, but know he is with our Lord now. He was such a sweet and loving man, and he will be greatly missed.
This is the image of him that will always be in my mind. He just loved playing with Buster, and was so sweet with him. They had such fun playing with his canes and hats.
There’s a land that is fairer than day,
And by faith we can see it afar;
For the Father waits over the way
To prepare us a dwelling place there.
In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore;
In the sweet by and by,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore.
We shall sing on that beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blessed;
And our spirits shall sorrow no more,
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest.
To our bountiful Father above,
We will offer our tribute of praise
For the glorious gift of His love
And the blessings that hallow our days.
