A Peek inside our Week!

What a fun week we had!  I was sick last week, so all of last week's lesson plans had to shift forward to this week.  And that's ok...that's homeschooling!

So here's a peek inside our week.  Enjoy:0)



Writer's Club!  You know you are "living the dream" when you can hand pick your own class while teaching your very own!   Every Monday, I teach writing to these amazing kiddos at the library down the street, while N and MiniM stay at home and play with Moms and other littles.  

After class, we all walk back to the house, have some lunch and host a sharing session.  Each kiddo gets to share their writing for that day with their moms and siblings.  So sweet and so perfect!

Quick Subtraction make-up lesson is just what we needed to do Monday afternoon while the little guys napped.

Isn't Math a little more excited when you learn how to subtract with CANDY!  


What a great morning to learn at the bank AND the grocery store!   

N enjoyed watching the suction tubes at the bank drive-thru while J wrote out a list of change he wanted to trade in for his $50 bill.

Shopping for fruit is WAY more fun when you get to measure it on the electronic scale, right?  They each get to pick out their own bag of fruit, as long as they weigh it and print off the sticker.

 Tuesday afternoons are special for J.  It's his PE class followed by a few hours at the Skate Park with friends.


Learning at home was what we did on this morning.  Colored sand is always fun...just add a 2 year old and some construction trucks!

That afternoon, our Cubetto came in the mail! N and I hacked into this mini-coding machine to see how it worked.  (And we will share that with you in a blog and Periscope broadcast REAL soon!)

Thursday - oh! Thursday!

Not - a - good - day!  I packed our learning and we headed to the post office to wait in line for 3 hours (yes! 3 hours) to get my passport!  It was a morning of patience and practice, for sure!

It was a MUST to make up for a nasty Thursday!  So we made it very memorable!  
We rode the train to downtown Austin, walked to the State Capitol building, had a picnic and rode the train back home.  

Seriously, one of the best days we've had (just us 4) in a LONG time!  The weather was perfect and we had nothing but time to soak up every bit of sunshine.  

Our week...another one down and many more to go. 

Happy Learning with your little ones!

Happy Arbor Day

We woke up this morning to drizzly, rain and cloudy skies.  But there is one thing that I have learned about Kiwis...the weather doesn...
