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

So,like most of you, this week was a back to school week. Monday went really well. Zach was quite dilligent and we went through our scheduled subjects smoothly. We started multiplication and he seems to have no issues with it.

Tuesday and the rest of the week were  more pulling teeth kind of days but we struggled through and covered basics.

Tuesday was also daddy's first day back at work after over a year of sick leave. Praise the Lord for that, although I really miss having him at home. This is the first of his gradual back to work schedule which will have him full time by the first week of February.

 In light of Dad's return to work I had to be thinking about what I was going to do with Joho while schooling Zach. The answer I came up with is: workbox.

I have never thought that workbox was good for me mainly because of all the planning it involves, but I think this is what will work best, laying out a list of things for him to do sequentially. We tried it today and it went ok, daddy was here so it was a bit unrealistic. What did I put in there: puzzles, a phonic workbook (and since he reads he can read the instruction himself), supermind puzzles and a reading book. I guess this plan will make for Joho to be an independant student earlier than Zach.

Now, apart from these academics, here is what the boys usually fill their days with, otherwise said, this is the unschooling part of our homeschool.

Have a great day,

Hooray for Daddy returning to work. I imagine it will be a big adjustment for the children but a huge blessing for the family as a whole.

I love all the Legos! I hope you are all adjusting well to your husband returning to work. I can see how that would be hard and wonderful at the same time.
