We have begun the 2010-2011 school year at our house. Woo Hoo! :) We have 3 days under our belt and both kiddos are doing great. For this month we are only doing math and phonics. We have done quite a bit in 3 short days. We finished 6 lessons of math and have learned 8 letters with 14 sounds. Over the next couple days we are just going to be doing some review games as we have a couple other things we are doing. That is the beauty of homeschool! We don't have to do school every day. And we can do it at different times of the day if something arises that has to be done.
We are starting early so that we can get enough done before the baby to only have to do 1-3 days a week through Christmas (baby is due Nov 24).
The kids are having fun, usually. :) Eli has to be doing something as similar as possible to the other 2. He even copies me when I say the letter sounds. He is big too! (He will tell you if you call him anything, like silly, that he is big, not silly. LOL) They don't always like to write, but we are doing some fun writing in oatmeal and on white boards, or just tracing withour fingers, etc. Josiah can actually write most letters and numbers. Katie Jo is learning and I dot most thing for her to trace. They really like doing the linking cube blocks for math. They actually got them for Christmas, so they have played with them quite often.
Tomorrow we are going to the free movie at Hollywood 18. They are showing Muppets in Space. They all love the Muppets. They have been counting down the days since we turned the calendar over to July and put the sticker on it.
Friday is my ultrasound. I believe that deserves its own post. :) I hope to write it tomorrow and let you guys give me your guesses. I really go back and forth on gender, but I do lean more in one direction. :) Katie Jo will be going with us, but the boys will play with Poppa. Eli wants to go but only to be with mom, and Josiah doesn't want to. He didn't with Janie Beth either. I haven't asked him if he has a particular reason, but I may do that tomorrow. They are nervous, in a sense, about this baby and talk as I do in the "if's".
I need to order our ants tomorrow so we can start our ant farm in Aug! I have a couple things to mail, but they don't seem to be making their way to the mailbox. LOL At least they aren't bills!
