Weekly Wrap Up!

We have had a busy couple of weeks with school. The weather has been very nice, so we finally started our nature studies/journals. You can see a post about it here

We started The Carnival of Animals for music study, which has been really fun.
I bought these two Bible study guides from Ebay Bible Beginnings: And It Was Good! and

Bible Beginnings: Precious In His Sight
They are set up with lessons that go for 5 days. We have been doing one each morning before school. These are super thick books, and we are starting with the Old Testament. I have found them very easy to follow, and the kids enjoy them too. Sweetpea started the majority of her K work this week. There was just no point in waiting on it she is very ready. Right now she is finishing ETC primer C, Horizons K, Handwriting Without tears K, Hearts and Hands from CLP, and Phonics Pathways. I have some other things I will start with her soon also. Buster is just plugging along with his work and should be done with most of it mid May. This week we started multi-syllable word mini pyramids in his Reading Pathways. He had a lot of fun reading these and looking the words up in the dictionary. Buster and daddy finished rodents, and read about Elephants, Woolly Mammoths, and Horses this week. Here are some other things we did:

My husband set up a kids computer, and the kids can take turns playing educational games while I work with the other on basics.

Sweetpea really enjoyed Jumpstart Kindergarten this week.

Sweetpea's drawing. I drew the bunny on the right and she copied it on the left.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

We planted some seeds, so far they have yet to sprout ;(

We had a fun day at the park with my sister and her kids.

They found treasure! Someone had dumped a bunch of pennies.

Counting their loot.

A tree fort.

I ordered some owl pellets from Ebay. Daddy and the kids had fun digging through them.
