Week Three

We are trucking along - just finished up with our week 3!

One of our challenges is that Lyndie wants to do whatever the big kids are doing - especially computer! This week she sat in for several math lessons. We turn the mouse "off" and let her move it around while the kids listen to the lesson.

I couldn't resist snapping a shot of Lyndie napping this week - she sleeps between 25 minutes and 40 minutes a day - that's it. We usually use her nap as a lunch break - we all need a breather by the time we get her down! We enjoy taking a lunch break and watching either a Food network show or an HGTV show.

Kaelee has been hard at work on mapping Canada this week. The goal is for her to be able to draw a map of Canada, and label all the capitals, provinces, and major features by hand. This week we made a poster board size  map of Canada, and then laminated it with contact paper. She worked on practicing identifying the major features. She also worked on drawing the map from memory. We watched the Epcot "Oh Canada" show on youtube for fun as well as listening to the National anthem from Canada while we mapped.

Lyndie had fun playdate this week with her cousin Sawyer. A playdate is not complete without a tutu and a tea party!

This week was Xander's first baseball game. We all had a great time going to see him play!

He played first base, and then pitched for two innings.
