Weekly Wrap-up!

We finished week 3, well sort of. We are still struggling each day to find some order and rhythm. We haven't been able to incorporate everything I wanted us to be doing, but we are adding a little bit more each week. I figure by week 7-8 we'll be hitting everything.

Hunter is plodding through General Science, unfortunately he is not science oriented and he has been unable to connect with anything, yet. He has seemed to enjoy his history and literature readings and has been able to discuss them intelligently. Hurray!!! Ancient Egypt is interesting and engaging, the order that TOG has you taking the readings is intuitive and easy to follow. He hasn't really managed to get into Latin, Geography, or Writing Aids yet but I know we'll get there.

Dakota is racing through Zoology 3, it's a little too easy for him but that is part of the reason he is going so fast. He loves the subject so I wanted him to have the intro with Zoology 3 and then he'll jump into General Science, although he might skip this and just go onto Biology. Koty has really seemed to enjoy his TOG readings, both Literature and History, and during our discussions he seems to be able to make connections. He also hasn't really been able to get into the Analytical Grammar, Geography or Writing Aids.

Ry and Tanyn have been working on puzzles, flash cards, and alot of Jumpstart computer time. We are working on writing our names and ages. Ry is obviously doing alot better, but Tan is holding her own.

Looks like you are doing good. I love the puzzles pic, kids are so cute aren't they?

It sounds like a good week. I know how you feel with trying to fit everything in. With so many subjects that should be done daily it can be difficult to balance sometimes.

I love the photo! School just isn't school unless you can do it in your underwear. My littlest is potty training so we even have a nakey boy running around the "school house" some days :)

Sounds like everything is moving along nicely. We haven't found our groove yet either, but we're getting there.

Oh, my goodness...I'm glad my kids aren't the only ones spending a lot of time on JumpStart. We've got a membership for the online game and my youngest two love it.

I hope you find your rhythm for the year soon. It seems to take awhile some years, doesn't it?
