It was so quiet around here with Brianna, Eli, Jack, and Hannah gone from Thursday before last to last Wednesday!
Katie spent time hanging out near me. Working on the iPad, painting, playing. If you missed our review of MaxScholar, she's learning phonics on the iPad there.
We worked on math (telling time) and spelling and handwriting. But mostly, we just hung out.
Josiah thought we should go someplace fun while the other kids were gone, so we spent a morning at Chuck E. Cheese.
Unfortunately, there was a school trip there, so it was super crowded.
I think Katie had fun, but she was happy to leave when it was time to go.
Josiah said it was way too people-y there.
Wednesday afternoon, my little people and all their laundry came home! Sunburned and scratched up, they obviously had a marvelous time.
But hanging out with Katie was not all that happened this week! Sam enlisted with the Marines. That means we were in the recruiter's office signing papers Monday and Tuesday, and Sam was gone most of Wednesday and Thursday at MEPS. He's very excited. It will be a long wait, since he doesn't leave for boot camp until January, but at least he's got a plan in place.
Also while the kids were gone, I had an IEP meeting at the local school for Jack, who will be getting speech therapy at the middle school once a week next school year. Middle school? Goodness. Hard for me to admit my baby is going into 7th grade.
We're definately not in a routine yet, with such a crazy start to summer. Hopefully soon we'll be going to the pool and summer movies and the library (yikes! I have overdue books to return!) and such. Maybe I'm kidding myself about "routine" anyway, since there will be a VBS week and Katie will be attending 2 weeks of "safety camp" (mornings only) that Brianna will be volunteering at.
We still have a few review products to work on/finish up, so there will be some learning going on, but we won't be doing regular school until the big kids go back in August.
