Proof we actually do school, sometimes...

Robbie has a new hiding spot. He really thinks that we can't see him when he crawls under the kitchen stool. I always know he has done something to his sisters when he comes running into the kitchen and pulls the stool over his head.
We started off our second day of school with scrambled eggs made by Katie. Yummy!!
We only spend about 30-45 minutes at table activities. Emily is insisting on having her own work during this period. She lasts about 20 minutes before running off to do her own thing.
Even Robbie will join us for small spurts. He just needs some scrap paper, a pencil and some crayons.
The first few days back are going really well. Today we have gymnastics in the middle of the day. I'm going to continue the routine of 'game' morning on Thursday with focused school during Robbie's nap time after gymnastics. It allows us to do some more in-depth things on Thursday. This morning Katie and Emily have been playing Blokus and Don't Break the Ice. I've been working online and persuading Robbie to sit on his potty intermittently (if he doesn't want to wear his diaper, he needs to use the potty).

Peace,

Amy
A family of six living and learning. You might catch us outside in the mud or working on crafts. We always seem to be on the go, come on and join us.
