2 Weeks Done (almost)

Tomorrow we will finish up our second week of school.  It is going so well this year. Sugar Plum is doing much better at working independently.  We still have a ways to go but she is getting tons better. We have had fun so far. I am really enjoying Adventures in My Father's World from MFW.  It is lots of fun and so informative. Sugar Plum is learning a lot and really enjoys the read alouds. 

We had fun making a flag craft as we learned about the flag and pledge.

My nephew comes 3 days a week for preschool with us while his mom teaches school.  He is with his grandma the other days.

Monkey getting into trouble.

All 3 kids learning together.

Monkey loves to color

We learned all about Christopher Columbus and his 3 ships.

We pretended to sail the ships across the Atlantic Ocean.

So far it has been great school year.  Sugar Plum is taking PE and Art at our local Christian school.  She has been to PE twice now and is really looking forward to starting Art next week.

First Day!

We are back to school.  I am excited about this year.  We are using My Father's World curriculum for 2nd Grade for Sugar Plum and I am super excited about it.  She is already in love with making the US history notebook.  I have great hopes for a wonderful year using this curriculum.

Causing Trouble



It has been a great 3 days so far.  Our biggest challenge is Monkey getting into the workboxes and messing with things.  Here's to a great year!
