Weekly Wrap up 9/24/10 Week 3

Evangeline with her Oso. doing some bookwork.

Caleb had some tot-school time this week other than just coloring. He colored these bugs and then we decided to tie them on a stick and make a mobile. The kids found a plastic fly and wanted it below the spider as if he was going after it for a snack. :)

Here he is coloring pasta to match the colors I put in the bottom of each egg cup. He did 3 of each color.

Then he strung a necklace on 2 pipe cleaners. Here is his camera pose. hehehe

We decided to have Bob, Abbie, and there crew over to watch the Harvest moon and check out Jupiter with us. My kids got very excited and created this little space station. :) books, telescope, binoculars, and a fun mobile Timmy created out of cardboard - tape - string

Around the bonfire

Kids checking out the moon

My camera was not liking the night time action. :) It seems to think there were 3 moons that night.

Taught the kids a few games from my childhood. Mother May I and Simon Says. P.E. if we keep active enough.

Oh and for all of you to know :) We totally are behind in my school schedule and slowly working toward catching up. We really do not only do fun stuff - most of the day is full of sit back down, no you don't need another drink, please get dressed so we can start, how is it 11 and we have only done one thing, I guess we will just skip that and call it good, Pick up your pencil, stop sharpening your pencil, stop doodling on your worksheets, Please don't whine, It isn't lunch time and we already had snack, and so on. hehehe I have just been purposefully trying to capture some of our more peaceful moments in picture so I have some encouragement to look back on. It is so true that when I think back to years past with my little ones I remember the fun times and the less fun are a vague fuzzy sometimes humorous memory. So here we go day by day week by week making our new memories.

It looks like the harvest moon night was a lot of fun and probably something the kids will remember for years.
