Oh my.. another what..almost 2 months since I did a real post?? Not sure why I can’t seem to get in the bloggy spirit anymore.. I’m going to try harder..I promise!
So here is a most gigantic picture post.. this isn’t even all the pictures over this time period..lol
The pictures are in NO order..cus I’m lazy and don’t want to try and sort them.
We’ve had SNOW… snow like we have not seen in decades.. barely 3-4 days has gone by in between “Storms”.. it’s crazy…
Has anyone seen my fence??
We’ve done snow science and made snow cream:
It really tastes better than it looked….
We did lots of little experiments with packed verses unpacked snow and melting…
And observed snowflakes..
we weighed packed and unpacked snow..
We had a major leak in the schoolroom from the snow and ice…sigh: this whole window tract was full of ice, the water was dripping down the wall.. the carpet was soaked, the padding ruined. If it wasn’t for the kitten we would have gone longer without knowing. The treadmill padding kept us from knowing the carpet was soaked..thank you kitten!!
Trying to soak up and dry up as much water as we could while Eric was still at work..
carpet pulled up, padding thrown away.. now we are drying the subflooring..took 3 days with 3 oil heaters going 24/7 to dry it all..
It was soooo wet..unreal..no clue how long it had been leaking..
We fixed it, saved the carpet and replaced the padding:
Here’s where all my school stuff lived for almost a week:
No pictures of it now since it’s all put back together and you’d never know it happened!
Taejan and Ziah did skating lessons: Taejan in orange..
Ziah in green
We’ve had more basketball.. this is the last week of regular season games! Ziah is on the right..camo leggins..
Declan is the blonde with the long hair..he’s easy to spot!
Taejan isn’t playing on a team ( he was but for the Y and it was NOT good so we stopped)..he’s doing Clinics at the Boys n Girls Club and loves it!
In all navy
We have completed one session of Homeschool Swim lessons and now have started another!
We’ve done lots of schooling:
The kids did meal worms but um..nope I hate bugs and I wouldn’t actually have them in the house so we watched a few youtube videos!
Since we are studying early Colonial times Ziah made a spoon doll.
and they dug Dino eggs..
Taejan did magic Milk
We learned about Martin Luther King Jr.. the kids watched his I have a Dream speech..
We studied our math facts..
and used the learning pallet
Boring ole seatwork..
more boring seatwork..
Taejan watching one of his Leapfrog video’s while I was doing seatwork with the other 2..
practicing his counting,.
We’ve gotten lots of new curriculum: Abeka Science 4 kit from Home Science Tools.
All our new books. We have jumped InTo the box..after 4.5 years of doing our own thing sticking with no one curriculum we have gone to Abeka for all 3 wee ones for all subject but History. So far we are loving it.. especially Declan. He started 4th grade the other day and he already says he loves Abeka. We restarted Ziah on 2nd grade.. so far she’s doing very well..I am just trying to find my groove with the curriculum.
we painted a Chameleon Puzzle for our friends soon to open dance club ( i will be working there several nights a week)
Taejan built an awesome building:
We had dance classes:
and have read stories:
I promise to try really hard to get better about blogging..but um..don’t hold your breathe!
