This week FLEW by!
DD3 Finished Unit 1 of LHTH and the first two days of Unit 2. Below is her completed "A" from Unit 1 - she used dry kidney beans and LOVED doing it! My DS6 was begging to do it along with her, but I had him help with the glue bottle so we didn't end up with a glue lake on the table.
She was incredibly sad when I pulled up the taped "A" from the carpet after Unit 1 was finished on Tuesday. She immediately wanted "B" taped down Wednesday morning when we began Unit 2 but I told her she had to wait. She asked about it again this morning...maybe I'll give in and get it on the carpet for the long weekend?!
Here's her second page of her counting book - she found one hand in a magazine and then I traced her hand and had her cut it out. She really enjoys using scissors since this is something I've not let her do much of in the past.
On Thursday we took a "field trip" to our zoo and it was a lot of fun to see the animals in-person that God made during Creation! DS6's favorite animal was the stingray. While we were talking about the flood during DD3's lessons this morning, he proudly told his sister that the stingrays didn't get on the ark because they were like fish and live in water.
DS6 finished Unit 1 of LHFHG and began the first 2 days of Unit 2. He LOVES the activities and really enjoyed the thinking game this morning where at one point he was a "tree" IN the Garden of Eden.
He also enjoys History and this morning as we talked about the Curse and then the Promise - he turned to me and said how thankful he was that God sent his Son to die for him. It made my heart
During this week, I've had two friends reading my homeschool blog (sorry, it's private now
) tell me that they are looking at beginning to use HOD with their preschool-age little ones this year or next! I can't rave enough about HOD!
