What have we been up to in school this week?
Well, we finished our first chapter book, Owl At Home.
My parent's stopped by the day we were on the final chapter,
so The Fantastic Okapi was able to read to them.
His reading has really taken off this year, which has been fun to see.
In Social Studies, we've been reading about the pilgrims.
(At this rate, we should definitely be prepared for Thanksgiving!)
Math has been kind of basic.
And some fact families.
I'm ready to spice it up a bit.
Our Bible person of the week is Noah.
It was fun to learn the meaning of his name: rest!
We're also memorizing 1 John 4:15-16a and Galations 6:9.
For handwriting, we wrote letters to grandparents,
copied Bible verses
and rented a "Draw Right Now" book from the library.
We've also spent a bunch of time outside
(enjoying every last drop of summer),
visiting with friends,
thrifting, doctor appts and trips to the grocery store.
Sometime soon, I hope to take you on a day by day adventure
through our homeschool... eh, perhaps sometime in October or November!
Portraits of my parents, for Grandparent's Day.
The boys wrote a little note on the backside.
The Fantastic Okapi learned to ride a bike!
We aren't the biggest bikers... as a matter of fact,
Mr. Mustard Seed and I don't even own bikes. (Eek.)
But, we hope to get bikes next year,
so we can cruise around town together as a family.
I think it will be fun!
And how about The Green Owl?
What's he been up to?
Well, he's been writing letters like a letter obsessed maniac
annnnd he made us some Scrabble Soup.
I opened the fridge one night, and was like, "What.is.that?!"
Aha, indeed, it was Scrabble Soup! Ha.
