Getting in the Swing of Things

We've been easing our way back into school for the last 3 weeks or so.  I have my MOTH schedule on the wall in the kitchen so I can glance at where we're all supposed to be– ha, ha!  We haven't gotten in down, it needs some tweaking, but we are getting there.  Today has by far been our most accomplished school day yet.  Most importantly, we have done family devotionals and individual Bible reading both days so far this week. Yippee!!!   I often get into the school routine and forget that Bible is the most important thing they can be doing. 


 


We also don't stick to schoolwork regardless of what is happening.  If the weather is absolutely beautiful, we go outside, or  I send the children outside. 


 


Here is what we're trying to accomplish:


 


Princess: 


English (rod and staff–finishing last year's book, then we'll decide what to do)


Copywork for girls


Calculaddar (for now, that's all we're focusing on, will add Ray's or other cir. later). 


Story of Invention


typing


 


Bubba:

Horizons Math


Copywork for boys


Cursive writing–handwriting without tears

Little Bit:

math — simple single digit addition right now


speech cards and homework


 


All:

individual worship time 4 minutes per year old so little bit does 20 minutes, Bubba 24 and Princess 36. (at least 3x's a week) includes reading, singing, memorization.

Resume English from the Roots Up and greek lessons with Shane 1-2 evenings a week.

Princess got a sewing kit for her birthday in June and she's been busy sewing all sorts of little things.  The boys have recently become interested too and are learning as well.
