Another whirlwind week. Continuing on with last week's theme, we had interruptions to our schedule with various dental appointments. I'm an anxious mess when it comes to the dentist, so I had to be gassed and then it took hours for me to feel like myself again, so that day was a complete waste. I'm also dealing with severe lower back pains that made it impossible to sit for long periods of time, which also threw a wrench into our plans. (I'd just do school until I couldn't anymore.)
So, with all that in mind, writing up a report isn't something I'm too keen about at the moment because it involves sitting down. Please bear with me and appreciate the few photos I can share with you. :)
We're in 3 Nephi and read one of the chapters about Christ's appearance to the Nephites after all the tumult and upheaval of the land. One of the cities that was damaged was named "Gimgimno," and I had a heck of a time pronouncing it while reading it out loud to them. The girls thought it was hilarious and we've decided that we need to name a future pet with this name. For now though, Penguin is content to color pictures of animals and name the pictures "Gimgimno":
A big moment this week was Penguin's last day of Phonics Pathways:
I have now raised two fluent readers. ::high five to myself:: And, once again, I have graduated a kid out of Phonics Pathways at the same time that I'm starting another kid on the course.
We also had Bluebird's big city council address on Tuesday, which was all sorts of awesome.
I think the girls also listened to the chapters about the French Revolution for history one of those days. Yes, they did--I remember Penguin skipping about, singing "Bye, bye, Robespierre" to herself.
We're scheduled for our Winter Break this next week, so don't be alarmed if you hear very little from us, as I'm trying to implement some fun into our lives throughout the week. (Or maybe you'll hear a whole lot more from us because I'm not bogged down with teaching school.)
