Well after the excitement of the zoo and seeing their buddies we had to have journal time… Emanuel and Trinity did amazing nature journal pictures. Though Trinity’s was an imagination picture based on animals she saw.
We had our paperchain to make in vibrant red, white and blue…
The sunroom just seems to be a wonderland for the kids to do their schoolwork in. A nice change from being in the basement.
So we continued our Independence Day learning…
And had another rather enjoyable dino dig session.
So much unearthed
We checked out Nana’s flowers on her trellis. Purple and pink and lovely!
We had ice cream sandwiches.
…and I finally got together the necessary supplies to make Trinity her own Relax Bottle/Time Out Timer… I have to admit we are all soothed by the gentle movement of the glitter… you can find the instructions HERE thanks to My Crazy Blessed Life!
The girls even took a walk with Sean and Ken.
Friday brought a continuation on the same learning path in the same sunny room…
Ken managed a half day with time to work on the playset.
While the kids drew and created their own amazing art on our paper roll.
There has been some nice progress on the playset… AND Ken finally put up the carset on the wall.
And we got a special package in the mail. The beginnings of coin collecting with Gammie!
So we ended our week working on much the same as we started… but progress on all fronts AND a special day right in the middle.
