"Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness. - Psalms 115:1"
I'm sitting here at the computer with a pack of hot tamales (my candy of choice), a Diet Coke and with joy in my heart. We just finished our first official day of school and it went really well. I was reminded of the scripture above-- I attribute the good day to the Lord's grace and mercy!
Yup, there are kinks to be worked out---so far nothing major. I also had a minute of panic because I thought I just forgot to order a science curriculum. Then, I remembered Bud is going to have a Science class at the Enrichment Co-op we attend. So with that class, Classical Conversations's science memory work and experiments and read aloud topical books---science is covered. Whew---I thought I dropped the ball when my son asked 'When is science?'
I also got a chuckle when we were going over our CC timeline cards:
Bud challenged a Veritas Press card wording on the back because on the 4th day of Creation it only listed the Earth, Moon and Stars. He said 'it should also say the planets' in a matter of fact tone. Hey don't leave out the planets with my 'all things solar system' boy.
|He ran in and hugged me this morning with such excitement and enthusiasm---here's his excited face!|
|Technically--still just toddling around and joining in here or there--but he wanted to hold it;)|
|Making their Chicka Chicka Boom Boom trees|
|Little Bear was not too happy that Bud was trying to take over his puzzle.|
|Finally---time to figure it out on his own.|
|A copy of our morning board this week. We have open spaces for next week when we start Raising Rock Stars Preschool.|
|Bud wanted to copy the correct spelling of all the months---fine with me!|
|After finishing one whole craft Sis wanted to do another tree. But, she wanted to use pink paint. Unfortunately, the paint pack we bought had no pink. So color mixing it was. She loves that!|
|A simple sensory tray. Rice with alphabet foam letters and other things like spoons for scooping and cars for driving in the rice:)|
|Right before nap, I caught Sis on camera teaching her baby dolls...so sweet!|
|She's getting so big!|
