Amidst the moving craziness, we were able to have a pretty full week of school. We had fun dissecting owl pellets on Monday! "This is really fun, and I thought it was going to be boring," Zeke said. They loved finding the skulls in the pellets. Abby even found a bird skull! This activity is definitely not for the faint of heart. There was a slight odor to the pellets...and Abby even started having allergies to the fur in the pellets! But, Micah could participate, which he always appreciates and Eli was very festidious about cleaning off the bones!
On Tuesday, we had our co-op. I co-teach a "Michigan, My Michigan" class and got to put this lighthouse craft together for this week. The kids really liked it; even the two boys in our class who never want to do the craft participated in this one with no complaining :) We have learned that the kids really like playing games too--they stay much more engaged! Bingo, Jeapordy, and I am going to try Hang-Man next week!
Wednesday and Thursday we completed our schoolwork early for the Happy Molar household--by 1pm! The kids have done a good job working hard all morning so we can have time to run to the house or run errands for the house in the afternoon. Abby got to have a play date on Wednesday afternoon, and my MIL took the kids Thursday afternoon overnight! What a blessing! Steve and I spent 2 hours at the lighting store, had a nice dinner out and I got to attend a jazzercize class in the morning instead of at 7pm at night! I sent their English, math, bird lapbooks, Bible assignment and read-aloud along and my MIL was able to complete all the school work we had for Friday! She's a pro!
My mom is coming for a visit this week, so we will be taking the next 2 weeks of school off for her visit and our big move! And the next time I post a review, it will be from our new school room!
