Week Two: Finding Fun!

Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
-Ferris in Ferris Bueller's Day Off
     We had a pretty fun week! We got an extra day with Daddy, we survived two hours in a car dealership, and enjoyed some beautiful weather.
Let us SHOW you our week:

YAY! Daddy got to help with school this week!

"s" is for snake! We also searched for "s" things all week on our adventures.

We had to take our "Bella" car in for a check up. So, here we are stuck at the dealership for 2 hours!
We took our school and did our project on location!


Cutting was a hard concept for his little hands. But we will continue to practice. I have no doubt he'll get the hang of it, in his own time!

We matched color and numbers! It was a lot of fun to mix it up and watch him figure it out.
This will be repeated often!

Spray bottles with a paint+water mixture. Leaves from our field of adventure. Lots of fun!

It was a messy success! Thinking of trying this as an art project without the leaves and more colors.

We "hung around" the park as part of our schooling this week! It was gorgeous outside!

Things we learned this week:
     We, accidently, learned about Newton's Third Law of Motion {For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action}at the park. Our lesson happening when he pushed a swing and was consequently knocked down by the same swing when it came back at him.{Don't worry, he's perfectly fine.} He even did it again and again, thinking it was hilarious!
     To enjoy the moments. Don't make it all about the "work". Having fun is important to every childhood. Whether it's your kid's first childhood or your second one. :)
    That one of the joys of homeschooling is that it can be done anywhere! It's not a hindrance where you have to be stuck at table or desk, poring over worksheets. It can be done outside, during unavoidable errands, ANYWHERE!
Here's where our ideas came from this week:

  1. What a fun week! I love that you were able to "do school" at a car dealership. That is some creative thinking! I absolutely love your spray paint project - I need to try that with my girls.
