Regardless, we did manage to get some stuff done around here:
Language Arts: We moved ahead in Grammar, Spelling, Phonics and Penmanship. We're getting close to finishing Phonics Pathways, which is wonderful. I've had her staring at the pages of it since she was three years old. We're both a little tired of Phonics Pathways. She'll get to move forward, but I just cracked it open for Penguin and am set to begin again.
We also wrote a letter to Santa, which I will have Bluebird copy next week when she's feeling better.
Math: Bluebird played store and worked on telling time to the half hour. Penguin learned how to graph counter bears and pattern blocks, and spent time on learning about circles and rectangles.

- Bluebird wanting to get through her math flashcards quickly. She thinks it's great fun to blurt out the answer before I'm done reading the math fact on the card. I'm all for it.
- It's not exactly homeschool-related, but Bluebird has a bit of a reputation in our neighborhood as a smart cookie. At church on Sunday, one of our neighbors was talking to her and turned to me and asked, "So, does she know Einstein's Theory of Relativity yet?" It caught me off-guard. I replied with, "We'll study that next year." And he believed me.
