School’s been slow due to summer colds, parties… and well, just plain mommy laziness.
Mostly I need to get back in gear. The children are eager for some of our usual school, but as their teacher has gotten lost in the breakroom, they’ve taken initiative on some independent study. Kaira’s been progressing with her typing, and Kendra is learning 10 key to facilitate her drill in online math facts. Both girls have been devouring (just for fun) Abeka readers I picked up second hand.
We’ve been reading about ancient Egypt and doing some science experiments, but mostly just having lazy, lazy days.
I’ve been enjoying watching Keegan–the little fellow (18 months) is finally walking a bit! Verbally he reminds me of my eldest, as he’s already strings several words together in pigeon sentences! I would have predicted that my only boy would be more physically precocious and a little slower to pick up on verbal skills. Isn’t it funny how children surprise us?
Yawn, ho hum…I’ve got to find my way out of the teacher’s lounge and get back to the class room!
