Weekly Wrap up! HOD

Week 13:
We have finished 13 weeks of school!
I'm extremely tired today thanks to two babies with messed up sleep schedules so I will keep this wrap up brief.
Buster is learning about multiplying by 2 right now, and it's going great. For reading he finished his Lewis and Clark book, and read The Big Balloon Race. This weekend we are going to read some Choose Your Own Adventure that my sister lent us. I finished reading Little House in the Big Woods to Buster, and he has been asking to read the rest of the Little House books. My plan is to do a Little House study this spring. Other than that he is plugging along with all his other work. Unfortunately he thought it was a good idea to try and cut a tree down with a steak knife on Wednesday. When I saw what happened to his forehead he said he couldn't remember, and preceded to act very strangely for the next hour until we saw the urgent Care Dr. A good confession later, and a butterfly bandage and he is all better. We did have a chance for a long talk about lying and playing with knives, and he decided to take his Bible to bed with him and read it for a little while.
Sweetpea is doing alright with her work. For some reason lately she has been very reluctant to do anything, but once we start she does great. It is a balancing act trying to keep it light, but challenge her at the same time. I finished reading Reddy Fox to her, and now we are reading Peter Cottontail.

Sweetpe loves her cuisenaire rods! We did get some actual math in with these before she made this cute picture of our family.

The kids loved eating their edible dirt that we made.
