Tuesday, Week 5
Today was an AWESOME day. There were NO arguments, no complaints, no procrastination, no tears, no fights -- nothing but awesome attitudes and cheerful demeanors. Today is the kind of day that shows me that we can homeschool and enjoy it!

Both boys drew in their nature journals and I wrote their entries.

N did 2 pages in his math workbook (matching analog and digital times) and C did the same worksheet he bombed last week on time (and only missed one this time.)

N practiced the letters I and J in "Little Folks" and read to me from the 5th BOB book.

C completed an entire week's worth of spelling (2 pages and an oral test.) He read to me from an early reader (2nd grade level) and then read the 2nd chapter of his "Faith & Life" book to me. He also practiced the number 9 in his "Little Folks" workbook.

I read from a book about whales and dolphins and also this week's Magnifikids.

We danced between assignments to the Shrek soundtrack. (I think this extra, very fun activity helped Nate immensely to transition from one thing to another.)

We played dominoes and Go Fish.

I finally remembered to write out the memory gem on the whiteboard on our refrigerator, and C noticed it right away and read it off. I plan to leave it up there for the week, and also make a copywork page from it. This week's reads: "Hearts, like doors, will open with ease, To very, very little keys, And don't forget that two of these Are 'Thank you, Sir' and 'If you please!' "

We met DH for lunch, and then I took my shaggy-haired boys for haircuts. DH's call after lunch was a bust, so we met up again to get the oil changed in both vehicles. (funny aside - I put socks on L today when we went out because the high daily temp has dropped below 100. I know that seems crazy, but that's Arizona for you!)

About Us
I'm a homeschooling mom with 3 wonderful kids! My boys are 6 & 7 and working at a 1st and 2nd/3rd grade level. We use Catholic Heritage Curriculum loosely, with lots of our own ideas added in. My boys attend an enrichment program one day per week during the traditional school year, which gives me extra time with my toddler daughter, and the chance to run some errands without my active boys.

This blog was a running list of what we do each school-day, but I tend to post here sporadically now. We usually school on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday to take DH's days off into account.
