time for another year in homeschool!
how is it already that time?
we tried to fit in as much as possible this month because next month, with the baby coming, we might not get as much accomplished...
we have a 1st grader (what?!), a pre-k, and a pre-pre-k (2 year old).
technically, mv should only be in kinder and jack in 3 year old class but they are advanced so i moved them up. and they are doing beautifully!
we begin at 8:30 and go until noon. gabe is with us until around 10 and then my mom comes to take him for his morning walk (or reading time, if it's too hot) and the older boys and i get to focus a bit longer.
it's been challenging to have our barely-two-year-old in class with us but we'll work out the kinks!
we had a great first month back and can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for us this year!
|the end of our summer reading fun!|
he made it to 61 books in under 3 months! not too bad!
and we will keep going! he wants to see how long he can get his caterpillar ;)
|first day of cc! mv is 5 in the 6&7 yo class (that i tutor) and jack is 3 in the 4&5 yo class!|
|i added a few decorations...|
|making a trencher! trenchers were flatbreads that were used as plates in the middle ages.|
|my mom, brother, and mike worked on the surprise for this unit for weeks before!|
the boys were sooooo excited...
|a "real" torch to explore!|
|the landscape surrounding the back of the castle|
|the stained glass window in the chapel!|
the chapel even had a bell to call to church and a hidden loft to store treasures for when the vikings raided!
|daddy's going in.|
a "hog's head" ham and amazing throne!
|ham, beef pot pie, roasted potatoes, soup, flatbread, poached pears, pumpkin pie, and "mead'!|
|the very pregnant queen...|
(the peasant got her pregnant...)
|the queen's lady in waiting|
|i'm so proud of this boy.|
he's only 3 and "reading" his notecard for his presentation. he's doing so well!
