The babies started the preparatory curriculum at Letter of the week. I don't make a big deal about it, since Boo's still really little, but its hard to tell her not to do something Ro-bear's doing. Pretty much we read some stories on the theme of the week and I write things on their poster (read piece of paper taped to the wall). L-bug loves the baby school, she sits in the rocker doing some quiet work and listens to their story. Boo has figured out that 'school work" comes right before nap time though so she's kinda tries to make it longer so she can stay up, but I don't fall for that lol. It takes 5-10 minutes so nice and brief and Ro-bear loves it.
I've been trying to work on a nice routine for the house hold. We've had them before, but things like nap time changing and new classes and just big holidays likes Christmas throw us off and you have to stop and think- what do we NEED to do. So far we've added back in game night and movie night and everyone loves that. We're due for a field trip soon, just not sure what. Planetarium maybe.
We've also been working with L-bug who went from loving math to hating it and we've found up to flips her numbers like crazy- so while she can DO the math involved she can't keep it all straight if we ask her to write it down and she's gotten discouraged poor kid.
On the cooking front we've tried meals from Don't Panic- Dinner's in the Freezer. So far we're three for three all delicious. We've also made baguettes and chocolate bread (or was that last post) and all kinds of yummy's out of the meals from around the world book who's name escapes me.
On the crafting front I've started a lapquilt for next Christmas. So far so good, but a long way to go.
Let's see- nature wise, the two cactuses died, the butterfly's still in his cacoon and the other plants are chugging along, we also added parsley to our collection. Its doing well and is yummy.
Hope you all have a lovely week and I'll see you back here next week.
