Our church is small, which we love. And our church does not require our kids to go be taught by other people in contained classrooms while the "adults" worship. And this we love. Instead, we are given a monthly packet of curriculum to use at home. The materials correspond with questions from the First Catechism, which is something we are teaching the kids. For the month of January the questions revolved around the Creation, so for a culminating project the kids were to create a papier-mache globe and bring it to church. We did three (because Child #3 has "Me, Too" Syndrome): one big globe, one medium-sized globe, and one wee, little baby globe. (Random allusion to The Three Bears. Did y'all catch that?) Their reward was a free Chik-Fil-A sandwich...each. Yum!
The last of the snow melted today, leaving lots upon lots of mud. This means more laundry (and mopping, apparently) for Mommy.
Groundhog Day. We made a little paper craft. OUR groundhogs most certainly did NOT see their shadows!! (Shame on Punxsutawney Phil!)
Getting into first position (and lamenting the fact that her laces are sticking out). It's dance day again!
I was a zombie for Academy today, thanks to Atticus waking up at 5:30 and screaming for over two hours (so weird). Sore throat, maybe? But thankfully, it was rainy so the students stayed in for recess (my least favorite part about school), and I got to play this game with a very funny kindergartner.
Ever played Guess Who?
As Noah is studying about Amelia Earhart right now, we spent pretty much the whole day making every kind of paper airplane known to man.
Paul took Noah to help out at a church friend's place. While they were busy cutting down trees, I was busy cutting one little guy's shaggy mop.
That was my week. Thanks, Sara, for hosting!
