Weekly Wrap Up!

After taking last week off we dove back into school this week. The kids are continuing to to do well, and it is fun to see them learning so much. Sweetpea is really into school, and there is no leaving her out. If school is going on she is right there. I have started showing her how to sound out three letter words and she is catching on pretty well. Buster did a great job drawing butterflies this week. Drawing is really not his thing, but he is doing a lot better with the Draw Write Now books.

Sweetpea loves to paint.

Buster did his first experiment for science, and he and daddy started chapter two this week. He is using Apologia Land Animals. He really impressed daddy how well he remembered chapter 1.

After we came home from our trip last weekend our butterflies hatched.
We released them on Monday. They flew out one by one never to be seen again.

This poor one was crippled. We were going to just leave it in the cage, but it kept trying to climb out to freedom. My husband put it on one of our rose bushes.

That's about it for this week be sure to check out Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers for more Weekly Wrap Ups.

I'm going to have to get one of those butterfly kits. They look like a lot of fun.

Have a great weekend!

It sounds like a great week. We did butterflies when my eldest was younger. When my youngest gets a little bigger we'll surely do it again.

What a fun week! We usually do butterflies every summer but we never did this year.

My daughter likes doing the drawings in her journal, the writing not so much. Butterflies are on our list for next year!
