|Sorry about the horrible blurring of the other kid...|
his head doesn't really look like an explosion.
We're moving along like molasses. Slow and steady gets the job done, so we're sticking with it. I was glancing through the random files I've uploaded from the ol' camera, and random pictures I've posted to Facebook, and realized that we have photographic evidence of stuff being done. (It's just, that by Friday, I'm too tired to remember that we did do stuff during the week!)
|Learning how to do the "Witch's Broom"|
cat's cradle...thing at Kaya book club.
I've been trying to focus a little more on enjoyable learning time together--our morning devotional has nearly doubled in length with the addition of some much-appreciated read aloud time. I knit while I read aloud (I lay the book flat open on the couch, for those of you who asked) and Bluebird has caught the knitting fever as a result. Our read aloud right now is The Fellowship of the Ring. I think we'll take a break when we finish and read something that appeals more to Junebug and Monkeyboy.
There's been a lot of individual reading going on around here in the last few weeks as well. So far this year, Bluebird has read Across Five Aprils, Lincoln: A Photobiography, and right now she's working on Behind Rebel Lines: The Incredible Story of Emma Edmonds, Civil War Spy. Penguin has read numerous books about Abraham Lincoln, but most came from the library and I cannot remember their titles--I do remember one called Looking at Lincoln. She's working on a children's version of Treasure Island right now.
Junebug is still enjoying Kindergarten. She loves her penmanship book and usually does 4-6 pages a day, even though I say she only needs to do two pages.
We have a busy week ahead next week! Hopefully I'll remember to take pictures!
