A glimpse into our first week of school.
The kids usually start doing school up in the living room on the floor while I'm finishing breakfast stuff and waiting for Lincoln.
These two girls were so excited to get their "new" math books! Kassidy is already on the 5th lesson and managed to do 15 pages one day.
Karolyn's favorite subject is grammar.
Counting to 20 using our math blocks.
On Wednesday we took a field trip to the prairie to work on our nature journals.
Each one of my kiddos has their own nature journal and Kolsen also has another journal that he likes to keep with weather information and soil/air/water temperatures.
Everyone found a flower that they drew in their journals.
Checking out the aquatic life during our hike. The kids like touching the duck weed and next time we are hoping to catch a water boatman. We'll have to pack a net in our nature backpack.
Some people got piggy back rides. Next time I'll try and remember to bring my backpack to carry LT. The kids also want to eat a picnic lunch next week if the weather cooperates.
Kaylee was impressed that the grass was so tall.
The little girls doing a craft. I was pressure canning beans on this day. My new hot plate holding my pressure canner is in the background. It worked a lot better than using the side burner on my grill like last year.
Kolsen found a quite place in his room to do his reading one day.
We're adding on an extra science program called Apologia Zoology and we are studying flying creatures. This science experiment was to test our different wing designs on gliders.
The little girls found another small spot to do some fun school. When I'm not making them do school you can usually find them playing school.
A 5 gallon bucket of carrots all washed, peeled, slice and shredded. We ended up with 70 cups which should last us all year long.
The kids have been busy climbing on the trees in our backyard and they said I had to take pictures of the locusts they found. We'll have to stop by the library for a book on locusts next week.
Kolsen and Kaylee's special challah bread we are serving at our Sabbath feast tonight.
We did manage to do a bunch of school work in the classroom this week, but I didn't get my camera downstairs.
