We were busy last week with my Grandma, who at 91, came out to visit us from Indiana. We were so happy to have her out, and I was glad the kids got some time with their great-grandma.We are hoping to make a trip to see her this summer, and everyone is looking forward to that.
The weather has been gorgeous the last few days, so we have been at the beach. We are trying to enjoy that before it gets too cold again.
The kids also worked on academics. Decca has begun using his Japanese math book again. This kid just cannot stick with one math program, as he gets so bored. I am glad I have numerous books for him to choose from. He knows he has to do math everyday, and so he just chooses what interests him. This week the winner was Japanese math (which I love, and I hope he sticks with it for a while).
Decca also decided he loved to cook this week and created his own recipe. He made cinnamon chocolate chip cookies. He made them for his friends and siblings, and he was very excited when everyone loved them!
Tru and Autry are still going strong with all their work. They seem to be enjoying pre-algebra a great deal, which I am somewhat surprised by. Maybe it is because they get to work on the iPad during math (with a cool app called Whiteboard). Whatever it is, I am just enjoying this moment.
In other news I had some smart points from the homeschool co-op, and I decided to get Mark Kistler drawing lessons. The kids thought they were so corny at first, but they are enjoying them now (although they would never admit that).
