I’m happily sitting out here in the family room on my lap top as the kids are painting the first step in our art project. So, this may not be the cogent post, but I like this idea of how to get my post written and still be here with the kids.
Hey, it randomly stopped being centered……. And now the kids are happily sitting in the bath tub, okay not so happily as Princess is kicking her brothers. All too soon we’re not going to be able to have them take baths together, but right now they’re enjoying it immensely.
We did a lot of counting with our costume magnets. These are still a big hit here, and they love playing with them and counting them. Of course we continue our calendar, but I’ve left off having them do stickers to count the days of school. They were really starting to hate that, and in a few weeks I plan to have them making the number with our new Math U See manipulatives (once we reach that lesson in the curriculum, at the rate we’re flying through the first few lessons I’m sure that will be soon). I’d link over to their website, but I’m feeling lazy right now. I’m sure I’ll go back and fix it when I’m not on the lap top.
Bet you were beginning to think I wouldn’t have a picture this post weren’t you? We did two things to emphasize the different parts of insects. We played cootie, to read more about how we made this a learning activity go here. And we made our own insects, both activities were wildly popular here.
Sadly the activity I wanted to do wasn’t possible because of uncooperative weather, so that didn’t really happen.
Art this week was mostly a random conglamelation hodge podge of stuff. The kids had lots of fun expanding on my few planned art projects, and I think that’s probably going to be the way of things for a while. But the kids seem to like that so all is well.
The bath water is slightly green now from all of the paint that has come off of them, and Princess is way tired beyond expressing. She’s laying on my bed crying in sheer exhaustion, so I’m gong to go cuddle her for a little bit while the boys finish their bath.
I’ll go back later and find the link to link up to Homeschool Creations when I link my post up.
And, now as my postscript, all the kids are blissfully upstairs in their beds, pretending to be asleep. I’m going to get my posts for next week planned out. I’m thinking with Princess’ surgery it’s going to be a hectic week.
