We've also been releasing ladybugs in the backyard to combat the aphid problem. It's been fun watching where they go. We bought a bag for $20 at Ontario Growers in the local big city. :)
We had play dates with a couple different homeschool families.
The lad had the sheer joy of drawing a lemonade stand sign and then selling pop, lemonade and cookies at my annual yard sale. AND THEN!!!!!!! he used his earning to buy a lego Spider.!!!! What fun! We've spent a lot of time playing with the spider. :) mommy didn't have to help him at all. Not bad overall for one six year old boy eh?
What else? We've continued to do our reading at night, but really haven't done a whole lot in the way of homeschooling this past bit. We've taken time to do on the spot learning, but no book work and no organized time for learning.
