It's been a tough past couple of weeks. Suffering from a migraine makes it tough to think through what you want to do well. Everything just is SO much work. So our schooling has been slow and not as thorough as it should be.
Today I was feeling pretty chipper so thought AT LAST we can complete a full day.. but my best laid plans were put to rest when "Mom, why do you think my stomach is so sore?"
Sitting up hurt.
Laying down is BORING MOM!
So we made do.
We did some poetry cause poetry is EASY. Then doing his Jump Math.
We did Veritas Press because it's just clicking buttons and listening and you don't have to sit still.
After this was completed my son moved around and did some critical thinking with some toothpicks. The challenge was simple.... how many designs can you make with just TWO toothpicks. Spread them out and let's see. Are they different if you orient them in different direction? Does it matter if the top toothpick is over or under? Explain. He made them, then checked the sheet.
We continued our studies in From The Lips of Little Ones. Technically meant for young children, I just want to give my son a taste of going through the confessions of the church with a study that focuses on asking questions.
Written by a Pastor friend to help young children understand the basics of the Westminster Catechism.
This study gives a verse to memorize and day by day has a passage to read from the bible and questions to answer which you can make as in-depth as you want depending on the age of your children. It's also easy to look up the full confession if one so chooses. I hope next year to start working with the Heidelberg Catechism.
Anyways, there was a day in the life for us.
We followed it up at night as the lad started to feel better with a meal from Iceland! To go with our drawing around Europe study that we are doing. :) Yes, a recipe post is coming as is a review. :) Just so you know.. the food was GOOD. :)
