This week I'm linking up with Homegrown Learners, Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers and Our 4 Kiddos.
This week has been pretty crazy. Remember how I've talked about having an issue saying no or just not keeping myself running all the time? Well I've noticed a trend. When the fall hits, I don't stop. Not until January at least. This week was the culmination of the beginning of that crazy season. I had a blast and so did Boo Bear and the hubby. But we are worn out. ;-) So who knows what today will hold. We aren't sure if we are going out tonight or staying home and watching movies. Here's why:
This past weekend we had the trunk or treat at our church. It was the first one and it was a huge hit thanks to all the help we had. I am so blessed to be at an awesome church where everyone pitches in and has a great time doing so. I even got into the festivities and made a costume this year. Whew! Of course it took so long to do my hair and it had so much gunk in it, but guess what. Everyone suggests I do my hair like that more often. What do you think?
We did get school worked on this week too. I added in some more subjects including history, geography and some art and music. I'm trying to add more fun to our days. Does anyone else feel like they get in a rut and only get the basics done? That's where we were and so we added in some this week.
He is loving it. We are working on our state capitals. He's doing well and I'm pretty impressed. Stack the States helped him learn the shapes of the states and where they are located. Now we are learning more...
We are also learning in history about some famous people. This week was George Washington, Paul Revere and Thomas Jefferson. We are watching episodes of Liberty's Kids to supplement our reading.
We finished chapter five in our science book. He's hard at work on his lapbook that goes along with it and we are moving right along. We may have to have another science curriculum before 3rd grade is over but no one's complaining. Science classes also start back up next week so that's extra too.
What do you do on Halloween? Do you keep it at home? Do you head out for festivals ?
See you around the blogosphere!
