Homeschooling and Life: Week of May 12-17, 2014

This week has been challenging. I have been tired because of our busy whirlwind schedule of appointments, out-of-town events, so many things to do at home, etc. Also, Baby Girl has had a few meltdowns this week, as well as a couple of VERY early risings (one morning it was 2:30 a.m.) Bug and Doodles have been hit with a combination of spring and summer fever, and we still have lots to do. It's been a struggle, but we've managed to make it through another week & learn in spite of the difficulties. On the plus side, we've had some very nice weather days, so we took advantage of that and spent time outside, which always boosts our moods! Here's a look at our week:

Doodles learned about probability and odds in math.


Doodles studies the Mayans this week and we played a game like they did....

and I could NOT get the ball through the hoop without using my hands!

Bug is working on creating the Tabernacle on Minecraft.


If you look closely, you can see a woodpecker on the right side of the tree.
