I can barely remember what we've done this week. So I suppose this will be short!
Everyone has done some math, language arts, spelling, social studies, and science.
We finished Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
Goofy is 1/3 of the way through his math book already. That little overachiever. I suppose I'll have to order his next book by mid-October at this rate! He also read 3 new Bob books this week. He's super adorable while reading. He just loves it. His whole face lights up. He's just so happy to be reading!
Scrappy has had a reading breakthrough as well. He finally (FINALLY) has a good attitude about it! He loves his reader and can't wait to read more. His reader is marked as Kindergarten level, but I think it's more 1st or 2nd grade. He can read tougher stuff, I promise. I'm working on developing his love of reading. The fluency will come. It's the love that needs to be nurtured.
Funny did some research at the local pet store about firebelly toads. She really wants one. I don't especially care either way. I fear I'll end up taking care of it. She's been a tad frog-obsessed for at least a year. I figure it's not a fleeting interest, at least. I'm inclined to let her get one, as long as Hub agrees.
Oh, one other thing. I've been reading When You Rise Up by R.C. Sproul, Jr. this week. It is wonderful! It has been a great encouragement to me, as it's been a week of questioning homeschooling (it happens, let's just admit it). I've been struggling with the different-ness that accompanies homeschooling. I have been reminded that I belong home with the kids and that I am really helping them thrive. And they, in turn, are helping me thrive.
