Just another school day

It was so hot today that it was hard to get the children to "get moving" on their school lessons. But we did manage to finish. :-) First thing today we made scrolls to go inside the pottery jars the children made. They just thought it was one of the neatest things. They were so proud they said, "Take a picture Mama!" :-)

And here is a short video of their memory verse for the week.

Once we had our Bible lesson and craft done we went on to writing/reading. This was the hardest to get done today just because it is so hot and humid in the house. But I told them, "The sooner you get it done and do it right...the sooner you can cool down. So once they finished it we promptly took our math work upstairs to the bedroom with the window air conditioner. It was so much more comfortable up there. :-) Math went by very quickly.

Once math was finished I brought up the video and worksheets for the children's piano lesson. Gotta love KinderBach. Did the sheets upstairs and will practice the exercises on the piano when it is cooler. :-) Now I just need to get somethings ready for tomorrow. :-)

What a great idea to do the "fun" projects downstairs and the not so fun ones in front of the ac. I can't wait for my curriculum to get here so we can start too. I hope it will be here in time to start on Monday.

Your children are so darling!! Absolute cherubs. :) I can't believe I have been homeschooling for 13 years and have only 5 to go. We don't do arts & crafts anymore. I should have enjoyed it more while those days were here!

Thanks SO much for coming by and caring enough to leave a comment. MANY blessings to you through your homeschooling year!
