and if I'm not careful, I just may end up turning into a pumpkin!
We've been very busy cruising through history.
We recently learned about Early Egyptians, mummies, pyramids, Stonehenge, and Abraham.
And a notebooking page.
(The question marks mean we don't know the exact date)
This was our first week trying it, and it went really well.
The boys earn pennies for answering correctly...
(and pennies could taken away for any whining- which didn't end up happening- yay!)
It was pretty fun!
In science, we learned about the bird's digestive system.
(I recently added spelling to BW's subjects- and it's his new favorite subject!) Yay!
AW has 25 words each day, and BW has 8.
Lately BW has been helping AW by entering his answers into the TT program.
I love it.
We spent some time playing this awesome game I scored at a local thrift store.
The boys have been asking to play it every day because it's that fun.
Really. It's a cool game, and you should totally get it!
We play with real coins, and get to keep what we earn at the end.
Lately we've been switching back and forth from our Peregrina Bible study
to our Draw to Learn the Psalms book.
Next week I hope to add prayer journals to our afternoon.
Here's a peek at the boy's Psalm books...

(Doesn't Jerusalem look beautiful?)
This was part of his First Language Lessons book.
To make it a little more fun, he made this cute little caterpillar.
We skip some of the repeating, just because it's not our style,
but over all, I'm very impressed with it- especially the workbook.
AW started a journal this week.
He's been having a lot of fun with it.
I love reading it.
(And love how he spelled cabbage (cabich) and carrots (carets))
He quickly filled about 20 pages in a composition notebook.
I paged through it tonight, and laughed so hard I actually cried.
It's SO CUTE.
Take a peek:
There is a word before the first "Sed" but I cut it off in the photo...
It says: "sed to Bryce wt you don. Wot emi doen. Eaten dygtn sed BW. Yeed."
"said to Bryce what you doing. What am I doing? Eating (mystery word) said BW. The end."
(Yes, "Yeed" translates to "The end."
So sweet. "The" was a spelling word last week, so he KNOWS it...
but just must have forgotten as he was busy speed writing!)
And one more mystery picture I found lying around our house:
the prancing husband on the beach photo magnet must!
Future school updates will be less lengthy,
as I hope to start posting weekly instead of biweekly.
I know a few of you have been patiently waiting for a blog post on my vintage kitchen.
I hope to do a full post or two on it sometime soon...
for now, here's a tiny sneak peek at a few of my favorite treasures:
All of them are useful and holding various things.
Thanks for stopping by!
I look forward to catching up with you again soon.
