She even tried to take the fish of the hook by herself but dropped it. Poor fish. She caught and released three fish.
As part of MJ’s Homeschool this year in Kindergarten. We read stories and for some books we do an activity or craft. [Read more…]
Moving is the worst and best thing. I was so excited to move into a bigger place, but as the moving started I was not feeling it.
I always get stuck with the organizing, and moving all the small stuff while my hubby does the big heavy stuff. It’s not fair because he thinks he did the hard work when that is so not true.
The hard work is boxing everything up, knowing where everything is going to go, unpacking everything, and then organizing it.
All the while he is at work and when he comes home to a clean organized house and acts like it was no big deal because he didn’t see the mountain of crap all over the house before it was lugged up the stairs and all put in it’s place.
I swear he thinks I can twinkle my nose or wave my wand and everything goes poof into place. I wish.
We are finally done moving and arranging everything and I am so exhausted. Everyone is happier with more room and the newness of it all.
I never want to move again!!!
Woo Hoo, finally a school day where we finished everything.
Fourth week of school and it’s been slow going trying to get adjusted to the routine again.
I worked this morning and instead of going back to bed I got the kiddos up earlier than usual.
We had a few mishaps that got us off track at first, but man what a difference it is starting school at 8:00 instead of 10:30. I was ready for a nap at 11:00, but made it through by laying on the couch while MJ read her phonics book and then I read science books about space.
School on the couch, whatever works right.
JEM started reading at 4 and a half and was much easier to teach than MJ because she just listened to everything I told her. MJ has to do everything her way and loves to argue. I tried starting the reading process at 3 then 4 and now she is 4 1/2 and is showing more interest. I know that at 3 and even early 4 might be too young, but wanted to introduce it just in case, like I did with JEM. And this is after I know they have the basics, like knowing all the letters, vowels, and enjoy being read to.
