Tuesday, Week 6
I'm almost afraid to say it -- but today was another great day. I hope we've made a turn for the better and the easy days are much more common than the difficult ones!!

Today, both boys colored an orca whale, did a secret code worksheet (adding 2 numbers, then matching the sum to a letter to decode the answer), created play-doh creatures, and listened to Anansi and the Magic Stick.

C read Chapter 3 in "Faith & Life" and answered the questions at the end of the chapter. He completed a page about alphabetical order in his spelling workbook. He also completed a very large poster about himself for his enrichment program (favorites, family names, what he's good at, etc. etc.) There was a lot of writing, coloring and gluing photographs down. He did a great job! He also memorized this week's memory gem, and was surprised to realize he also remembered last week's.

N practiced writing his name, and decided to also practice writing "Nate the Great." He worked on figuring out the beginning sound of a bunch of things around the house. I was extremely proud of his efforts on the secret code worksheet -- he completed it with no complaints and did a fantastic job - not only with the sums, but with matching the letters and then writing the letters.

Both boys played outdoors for recess, helped clean up after breakfast and lunch, and helped clean the living room. They also helped sorting out their clothes to get rid of those that are too small and figuring out what they'll need when the temperatures drop to 70.

L has a bit of a cold, but took a very long morning nap, which helped us get a lot done. I'm thrilled with the progress today, and especially thrilled that there were no tears, arguing, yelling or complaining from any of us!

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.
