This guy officially finished his Vex robotic thing:
And both boys reached their reading goals for January! This meant personal pan pizzas for everyone! I failed to fill out the forms this year…so we didn’t get to use the awesome free bookit program. I’ll figure this homeschooling thing out one of these days. =)
Below are some pics from our homeschooling life. As you can see, it involves a lot of reading. Sometimes the boys just sit and listen, but other times they color, do puzzles or paint. One day I even had them draw comics to the story I was reading. Micah started using a new handwriting book and seems to enjoy it. Ethan has started tracking his Magic Tree House books on the website again. He’s read all of the books and enjoys re-reading them in the mornings before he’s allowed to start playing. I warned him that he’ll need to start reading more challenging books soon, but for now I love that he enjoys a good story! =)
The boys have a lot of fun using their headphones. Sometimes they listen to their CC memory work music; sometimes they are listening to picture books being read to them. I love to see them enjoying the headphones!
As promised, here’s a video of Ethan singing part of our Latin song for memorizing John 1. We also are learning it in English. It’s a super fun song, so that helps!
We ended up watching the Super Bowl at home this year. We made sure to eat some fun snacks and had a really nice afternoon/evening. It helped that the team we *all* wanted desperately to win won! Oh my word, these two were cracking me up! =)
Also, throwback to 5 years ago…I took this picture of the boys and put the caption, “The boys just found out the Packers aren’t in the Super Bowl”. =)
Speaking of long ago…we took out a game I made for the boys years ago for the first time in a long time again tonight. We enjoyed playing the game of “Action” together. It involves things like push ups and squats and running up and down stairs. =)
