Monday: First day of Spring Break...but Mason wanted to do Phonics...so we did! That evening we got together with a few friends at the park for a kickball game.
Tuesday: Jenessa's birthday...she is so excited to be 12! Kessiah made her a peanut butter cup cake.
arranged for some friends to come over for Jenessa, Sienna, and Logan.
Jenessa started planning her birthday part with her friend...she is
going to have a mystery dinner...should be fun!
came home mid-morning with 3 more chicks to add to our brooder! We were
surprised at the difference in size between the new ones and the chicks
we got just one week ago.
though it is Spring Break for us...it isn't for every homeschooler...so
we did co-op today. It was my day to have everyone and the first day
of our new unit about the Civil War.
Thursday: We did our
homeschool group today, the first week of a new unit. We are discussing
architecture. I had the 8-9 year olds. We made pet rocks and then
made a jungle gym and a house for them! Kessiah and Jenessa's group
made structures that could hold a can of soup. Logan and Mason's group
talked about The Three Little Pigs and their different homes.
went to the library later that afternoon. It has been hard for us to
find a regular library time this school year. I was glad to be able to
pick up several books about the Civil War for Sienna to read during this
month to go along with our co-op theme.
Friday: Mason woke up
wanting to know if it was a school day...I told him no because it was
Spring Break. He asked if he could do school anyway...so we did some
phonics. I was happy to do that since he is eager and I think phonics
is one of those subjects that is good to do regularly. That afternoon I
took Kessiah and Jenessa to the bowling alley where they met some
friends...Jenessa was proud of herself for coming in second place!
We met some friends at the park on 3/14 at 9:26 in the morning to
celebrate Pi Day! Of course...there was pie! Kessiah scooped out the
first piece at exactly 9:26.
All the boys got haircuts...and Kessiah got a trim.
Saturday jobs were done, Ryan took the girls swimming at the Y. That
evening Ryan and I took Jenessa to Olive Garden...a 12 year old birthday
