This week has been a different kind of week from usual. We had planned some fun field trips and adventures away from the house. Instead, we got more than four inches of snow!! The children had a great time sledding down our hill, building snowmen, and having snowball fights. It was really an outdoor play paradise.
We also planned a children’s ministry event at our church that we have spent some time preparing for over the past week or two. It was a Peabody and Sherman themed family movie night. I’ll share about it separately in a couple of weeks to share all about the menu and decorations.
Dressing up for movie night is not all the dressing up that Monkey has done this week. He’s also dressed up to be a detective. He’s even got a magnifying glass out to be his “spyglass.”
We’ve also had a play dough afternoon. It was a much needed time of creativity and play. While the other kids worked with play dough, Firecracker spent some quality time with a Pokemon game.
We continued learning and note booking about the Trojan horse. We found out how the war started and how the Greeks made the horse. The children worked some on their math program too.
I started working with the children on some special lessons with their Egglo egg scripture scrolls. This week we worked on Deuteronomy 6:5. I’ll be sharing more about this lesson after we’ve finished it!
The children also did an amazing amount of printable crafts. We printed all of them off of Learn Create Love. My floor is now covered with paper scraps and every time I clean the floor out, someone begins to cut up another printable. Trying not to let it bother me!
Firecracker worked on his Pokemon notebook just a little bit. We also read How to Train Your Dragon: How to Steal a Dragon’s Sword. Rose and I are chomping at the bit to finish up these books. (Of course, there’s still a book left to be published in the series, so I have a feeling we’re going to have to have that feeling of unfinished series for a while.)
That’s really about all I have for this week. It was really laid back and happy. I’m hoping our field trips get rescheduled soon because Monkey was really looking forward to the fire station, and I was really looking forward to our tour at one of the historic houses in town.
