Friday, September, 9th, 2011

I've decided to date most of my posts, rather than always trying to come up with something catchy.

So today my 7yr has decided that she'd rather do her school work next to mom. Ok fine. As long as she's not laying all over me. She did ok, but got bored very quickly. I then let her do some times table on the white board. Funny girl was laying all over the couch while writing her facts down. What a monkey. :) The rest of the morning she spent watching a science website and then helped created her new calendar. It was help her know what the date and day are as well as the month. I also picked up a weather window clingons. She liked those. Hopefully she'll do better next week.

The older two did well. They usually do. They liked routine, 7yr does not. Should prove to be an interesting year.

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Today started out as an ok day, then 7yr didn't want to sit and do her math sheet. Just one sheet. I told her she could have some fun math after her worksheet. 45 min later it was finally done, and it's only day 2 of sit down stuff.

Then I had her do some grammar and a math game online. She did well. Oldest 15 dd did her math, grammar and science before lunch. She usually does a good job. Then I had to take 7yr to her science class at a local homeschooling mom's home. She had a great time doing science experiments.

That was it for the day. Hoping Fri will be better.

School days

Well, we've finally officially started for the year. Yesterday we did 2 days in one. Library was in the morning. We picked up books and DVD's that we need for the week. Did lunch, then had our last park day since next week the kids start their art and gym classes.

Today we did our first sit down and worksheet day. Started out a bit shaky, but by noon the girls had covered 4 subjects, so that was good. I'm hoping the rest of the week will continue well.

Day one of our official school day

Today will be two days in one. Due to Monday being a holiday, we will head to the library this morning. Get our books and DVD's then head home for lunch. After lunch it will now be Tues and we will head to the park for our last park day. Tomorrow should be filled with more academics than today. Mondays will always be more relaxed.

We'll on Monday we went to the library. Checked out our books and DVD's . Home to watch them and have lunch. Oh Mondays are our library day so I probably won't post much unless I find a DVD or book that we're excited about.

Did some errands then home. Again, not much to post about.

Tues we did our devotional, then the kids did their math review. I'm hoping to get catch up work done by Tues when we really start, but we'll see. Then we went to the park for one of the last times since our art and gym classes start in 2 weeks on Tues.

Wed again devotional and math review. By next week I should have more to say.
