I can’t believe it’s Friday ~ where did the week go! Just two more weeks and we will be officially finished for the school year!
We did the normal stuff (math, reading, writing, and spelling) and some fun things ~ learning about and watching caterpillars transform into beautiful butterflies.
Here are some of the highlights of our week:
Math – Emily finished her Math-U-See Alpha book!
Art – We made butterflies and flowers using pencil shavings. I loved the way they turned out and plan on giving them as gifts.
The kids made Butterfly Pretzels by dipping pretzels in chocolate. (Emily spent the morning at the Children’s Museum and had her face painted ~ just in case you wondered.)
The kids said they were yummy! (I don’t know because I’m still trying to be good!)
Ever since Emily was 3 years old we have ordered, or if we’re lucky found, caterpillars that we watch transform into butterflies. We had to order a new butterfly cage this year because a certain little boy ~ who shall go nameless destroyed our other one! The new butterfly cage came with a certificate to order caterpillars (Painted Ladies). So we ordered our caterpillars and watched and waited.
On Thursday two of our butterflies emerged from their chrysalis. This morning it looked like another one ready to come out so we waited and waited some more
Watching a butterfly come out of its tiny chrysalis, all crumbled, then seeing it flutter it’s wings ~ just never gets old!
We released two of the butterflies. The rest will be released after Daddy gets home. We don’t want him to miss out on the fun!
Mommy’s favorite picture ~ not because of the picture, it’s the memory of what the kids were doing. Aiden is pretending to drive Sissy to the forest. They were going to capture and relocate a pack of wolves who were causing mischief. I think someone has been watching too much Go Diego! I just love their imagination!
I hope everyone else had a good week! Visit Kris at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers to see what other homeschoolers have been doing this week .
