homeschooling

A crazy(er) week.

I am definitely a summer girl, but there is something about a rainy, cold day with candles lit inside of a warm, cozy house and soup in the crock pot for dinner that makes me happy.

This has been a crazy(er) week than usual. All 3 little ones have been sick and for us that almost always means trips (several) to the doctor’s office, breathing treatments (on more than 1 kid), and possibly a visit to the Emergency Room (which did happen this time).

So yes, this has been a crazier week and that is why it’s been over a week since my last post. Not exactly how I wanted to start off in this blogging world, but life happens.

Since my last post I did get to order a couple of  things for homeschooling. I ordered the free Classical Conversations catalog and the book Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons by Siegfried Engelmann.

I was hoping to go ahead and begin using this with my 4 year old, but after looking through it I decided that she really needs to know all of her letters better. I know, duh!

She is working on her letters in preschool, but I am going to start supplementing more letter work with her at home.

The Classical Conversations co/op is something I’m pretty sure I’m going to put her in next year. Registration begins in January so I still have a little longer to think about it.

I also ordered my self a couple of books which I am super excited about. The first book is The Best Yes by Lysa Terkeuryst.

I love her books and a friend of mine and I will be doing a study on this book in the beginning of the year with the preschool moms at our preschool which is also our church.

The second book I ordered is the iBlog e-book. I haven’t had a chance to read it, but I ordered this one in hopes of it helping me out with his blog. I really hope it does because I have no clue what I’m doing.

Lessons I’ve learned in the last week. (The ones I can remember)

The stridor noise kids make when they have croup is scary and never normal.

I have put off reading a book for myself way too long.

Olivia needs to work a lot more on learning her letters.
