So After almost a Week....

We are finishing up our first week of school @ home and the girls are really loving it.
We've read lots of books.

We've made paper ants....and painted apples...

We've sung a lot of songs and mastered our memory verse:, "Go to the ants, O sluggard. Consider her ways and be wise" Proverbs 6:6
When asking Natalie just what this means, her paraphrase is.. "Look at the ants if you're feeling lazy and do what you're supposed to do without being told!"
I know I'm her momma, but I'm very proud of her! She has tried especially hard to do the few things she's supposed to do without being reminded. We've added a new chore of wiping off the table after meals and she LOVES doing it.
In fact both girls have done so well with the memory verse that we went ahead and started another one on Thursday.
They both LOVE the hands on stuff so much, we are going to be doing lots of crafts.
It's going to be a busy year!
Tomorrow we will wrap up our week by doing a bit of a review and making a trip to the library. It's time to get all the books we need for next week!

I too love seeing what others do with their kids, partly because I get ideas from them on what to do with my own little ones! Thanks Lisa for being an inspiration for my own "ant" lesson! Homeschooling older children can be a bit tedious at times, so ENJOY those little kids and the FUN stuff you're doing with them!
