We started a study on the country Brazil (great link!!) and a unit on the state of Hawaii with making observations on various tropical fruit. My daughter's similes on a horned melon: "It's like a desert with volcanoes all over it," and "It's orange and yellow, like honey." It lead us into the discussion afterward of what similes are.
Had some normal school and dance time, and then enjoyed an afternoon playdate with some of our favorite homeschool friends.
(yep... different colored socks, "Amelia Bedelia" and snuggle time with our dog, Zelda Ballerina... sounds about right! ;)) Also, here are some great links to Amelia Bedelia related printables.
Banana bread break, practiced measurements
Went outside to chase chickens while we waited for the banana bread to bake...
"Is it done yet, mama?"
Dad gets home from work and spends some "tough guy time" with our son while I take our daughter to Girl Scouts... this is them showing me how strong they are, lol! :D
Sometimes, two chairs just isn't close enough. xoxo
Made it to the playground one more time with some awesome friends to enjoy the strangely warmer January weather before the snow and winter finally hit!
AWANA!! What a blessing we have found in our AWANA program, we love it!!
Friday--Winter finally hit, and we got snowed out of Co-op!!! (our weekly classes we share with other homeschool families) We enjoyed the snow and look forward to the following Friday for co-op.
ah, my daughter finally had the satisfaction of making a snow angel, she's been waiting all season! :)
After the kids came in, and warmed up with hot chocolate, they continued with some "warmer" activities... continuing our tropical studies. ;)
Saturday--we picked up the kids' friend for an all-day playdate, made for an awesome Saturday!
What were your highlights from the week? God Bless!!
