I can't believe this week is over already! It's flown by! I guess that's what happens when we're busy.
This week we began painting our castle blocks. We've hit the Middle Ages period in history, and this week we learned about Charlemagne, Beowulf, and Augustine.
The boys paint while I read. We're not done yet, but I'm guessing we'll finish next week. Shh! Don't tell Jack and Eli, but I have wooden people and dragons tucked away, too.
I got the instruments out for the girls this week. I was reminded of them by something I saw. I've realized we have so many great toys and educational products that I forget about some from time to time.
We might need some sort of bells to add to our collection. Currently, we have a rainstick, maracas, egg shakers, tambourines, and rhythm sticks (that appear to double as drum sticks!).
Remember how I mentioned they had lost some of their mad Geography skillz from a couple years ago? Well, I'm making a point to have them work on getting them back. This week it was our GeoPuzzle of Asia.
Jack likes to draw while I read, and as we're reading about battles and these people conquering those people a lot of the time these days, he made this castle scene.
Paul took this picture. It's the best smile photo we've gotten in many months. You like the food boogers on his wheelchair straps? The church we've been going to doesn't have nursery, and Paul's way of keeping Luke from screaming through the service is to feed him the whole time. We neglected to bring a bib one week. I keep meaning to clean the straps, but I usually think of it when I'm buckling him in to get on the bus for school, which is not exactly the best time.
Luke had his dental visit this week. Every 6 months, we have a flurry of trips to the dentist, and now, I'm the last one left (Tuesday of next week).
Eli got a new airplane puzzle. Brianna loves puzzles, so she's helping him put it together.
Katie and Hannah started an art class. Hannah only gets to go for two sessions, since she goes back to "real" school next month, but Katie will get to go to 5.
Today's project is a two part one, so I can't show the completed works yet.
But here's a couple of partially completed shots. You like the green paint on Katie's face?
I'm really going to miss Hannah when she heads back to school. 6 weeks is a long time to be off. She doesn't get time off again until May, then has school the whole month of June. Crazy track system!
