Starting to get back on track.

Finally!  A week where we actually spent some time learning!  :)  What a relief!

We had a busy week getting things ready for Zander's 6th birthday party.  It was a small party, just the four of us and Adisson's friend who spent the night.  Zander had requested a Spider-Man themed party and I happily obliged.  We found a few decorations, I planned a cake and a few snacks (most of which got scrapped in the interest of finishing up party prep so my guy could get to his presents).

But about school...Zander is busy learning about syllables and reviewing rhyming words (which is sometimes a struggle).  He's also been practicing his writing and spelling his last name.  I really want to work on teaching him how repeat and write his address, but we're holding off the writing part until after we move.  I'd rather not confuse him if that's possible.  :)

Adisson spent the week learning about Incans and Aztecs, reviewing how to make change with money, and learning about interjections.  He's supposed to be writing in his journal everyday but he doesn't particularly like writing, unless he's writing about his favorite video game...then he can write forever. I'm hoping we can work together to remedy this situation but it's nice to know there's creative writing help available.

We also took a field trip to the Marbles Museum in Raleigh.  We had been there before over the summer with Adam's parents, but when it's a weekend in the summer, that place is PACKED.  I thought for sure it would be a lot less busy since the kids were in school.  No...they were all there on a field trip.  Goodness, I was wrong!  :)  Fortunately, it wasn't so busy that we couldn't play and the public school kids and daycare centers left just after lunch time so we had a few hours where it was pretty quiet...which the boys LOVED!

My littlest guy LOVES to hang!

He was very interested in the Big Boy stuff.

The real tools section was a HUGE hit.  They got to use REAL saws!
You just wear your socks and it's slippery like a hockey rink.  They spent a LONG time here!

So that was our week in a nutshell.  This week will be a short school week because of Thanksgiving.  I want to do a few Science lessons and some art projects and that will probably be the extent of it all.  If I plan on keeping it pretty simple and light, I'm happy when I meet those expectations!  :)  If I'm not back before....HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
