For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Weekly Wrap-Up

It is Friday already, where did the week go?  Well let's see. . .

This week was our 4th week since we started school. I am happy to say that we are still on track in Math, English, Reading and spelling.  We started studying verbs in Zach's favorite curriculum First Language Lesson and he is really excited. He even likes doing the copywork part which is surprising since he really does not like to do any writing in general.

This week we did not get to do any science or history, and here is why:

Monday I had to go and check some furniture at a friend's house.

Tuesday I took the kids to  water play center.

Wednesday we had guests for lunch.

Thursday we had a playdate afternoon.

Friday I had to go to the hairdresser.

I did get to squeeze in his violin practice everyday, and I am very happy about that.

This week's school time was particularly difficult because of Joho's resistance to any established routine these days. Anything you suggest him to do, he is not interrested. It has been a bit difficult to entertain him recently. Once again I am so thankful for my hubby beeing home and dealing with that while I try to get through school with Zach.

One of the cutest moment of this week was when Zach asked me, at bedtime, in his naive and sweet voice and tone: "Are we going to have a baby sister soon?" I thought that was too cute!

Another one was when he drew this picture for me, untitled Sun.

And here is a picture to share of Johann doing a handwriting assignment. He thought it would be a smart idea to trace around his magnetic O instead of freely tracing it.

Wow you had a busy week. I hope your schedule settles down soon and that you can encourage your guy to participate :)

I understand those busy weeks! Looks like you guys at least had fun among the chaos :)

Isn't it funny how the right curriculum can just make things click for kids. We really enjoyed FLL and all three of my kids love grammar, which is kind of unusual. I hope your ds continues to enjoy it...including the copywork.

Thanks for sharing your week! I think the thing about kids is they continue learning whether or not you have actually scheduled a "lesson"! Glad to hear that he is keeping up with violin.

We had a crazy week here too. By some miracle, we actually managed to get all of our work down though.
