Highlight of the week: we (and by we I mean David and myself) got ridiculously excited over lettuce and tomato sprouts.
Low point of the week: a very tired, cranky Wednesday. And Friday.
Math: We completed eight pages of Singapore Essentials. We are inching into addition and subtraction (well, we’re there actually) and talking about things like “two more than five is seven” and “three less than four is one”. It took him a bit to get what I was talking about (Monday he just kind of looked at me like I’d lost my mind) but then the light bulb came on and now he’s applying it to non school things. “Mom, I had eight candies but Daniel wanted some so I shared and gave him four and now I have four candies left!”
Reading: We completed lesson 46 in OPGTR. Nothing exciting. We can probably pick up our pace a little bit, at least for the next little while.
Daniel: pretty much said “screw it” to the weather and played outside despite the winter weather we’ve had for most of the last week. Each day he lasted about ten or fifteen minutes before he would be done. After that he was pretty much “I’m going to lay on the couch and glare at the outside and if you’re not going to be reading me a story mama then leave me alone because I am grumpy”. Friday it was nice and he played outside for several hours and was content.
Alan: Has morphed to one nap a day – from 12 to 3pm. This is good and bad. Good because it means that all three of the boys are having a rest/nap at the same time. Bad because that is what time Church is on Sunday… which means that Sunday is going to be just a big nightmare. This kid is getting so big, so fast… it’s just not fair.
