We had a very busy, very active week and, I will admit right now that the kids totally outsmarted me on my new binder idea. In the end it worked out because they did most of their work pages even though we didn't have preschool every day.
On Monday we actually had a full lesson and it was fun!
1+1+1=1. This week we were working on the letter "C" and our verse was "Children Obey Your Parents" (Trust me, we reviewed that verse a LOT HA!)
Resurrection Eggs. I will admit, I should have remembered that I bought these and had them downstairs well over a week ago but I didn't. I will be adding notes to my Easter plans for next year so I that I DO remember because the boys really enjoyed them.
Now, we got to the end of Monday's lesson but . . the boys turned the blank page in their binder and saw Tuesday's lesson so they just kept going. (I heard, "Mom, just one more page, just one more!!") My error - next time I will only put one day at a time in the binder.
On Tuesday, we took a field trip with our Homeschool Group to see the butterflies at a local Garden/Sculpture park.
Wednesday both boys had Dentist appointments so that took up our morning. They both got perfect reports - no cavities and they both were perfect in the chair. We have a fabulous dentist which helps a lot!
Oh, and we made our first trip to Dairy Queen for the season. YUM! It was so cute -when we got there I asked Josh what he wanted, he told me a Hot Dog. That was it. Well, he knows his mind so I figured, if needed, I would get him a small fry after the fact. Well, as he finished his hot dog he said, "Mom, now I want my ice cream, that is why I only wanted a hot dog" hahahaha He remembered that he gets a small cone with his meal and did NOT want to fill up on the real food :-)
On Thursday, we went to the church so I could practice a song before heading to the grocery store and going out to lunch. Needless to say, that was our day HA! But, the boys asked for their binders so they could work on more pages.
1+1+1=1. They boys loved coloring all of the different pictures related to Easter.
Friday was a beautiful day. The boys played outside ALL afternoon.
We really had a great week. I'm reminded that "preschool" isn't just work book pages and lesson plans but learning how to live every day life, getting to experience new things, and yes, just getting to play.
