I have a love/hate relationship with blogging. I love reading peoples blogs and seeing what other families are doing in their homeschool. And I love the idea of sharing what we’re doing with family and friends and having a record for us, but I hate the actual writing of a blog post. I am just so bad at this. Oh well, practice makes perfect.
So, what’s been happening with us since last post. On Halloween my dh had a surgery that has had a very long recovery period (it’s been months and he’s still on a lot of pain!).Â Thankfully my wonderful in-laws came over to help out for the first 2 weeks of his recovery. Then there was Thanksgiving, a visit from my eldest brother, Christmas, New Year’s, my father died, and on the same day as my father’s death we got the wonderful news that my sister, who has been fighting melanoma for several years, is officially in remission, and finally MBS turned 4. It’s been a very busy few months!
We did get schooling done during this time, some organized units and a lot more casual learning. Here are some highlights.
In October we had done eye drop painting of coffee filter leaves and in early November we made tree trunks from paining MBS’s arms and then made fall tree scenes with the leaves.
We made snowflakes using masking tape and then painted over it. We liked this so much that it was the basis for our Christmas cards, though I soon got sick of making tiny snowflakes so most of the cards were just MBS’s paintings.
He drew an amazing Jack Skellington!
We got some snow.
We put together a lot of Lego’s.
And train tracks!
Okay, I think that brought us up to date. Now onto what we’re doing now but that has to be another post. Thanks for stopping by.
