Jayne had his first dance class on Thursday. He was about as adorable as he could get when I got to watch his routine he learned. I asked him what he thought of it and he said he wants to do that every day! I'm glad he enjoyed it. Plus it is a built in day of P.E. each week which was part of the point to start with. His group only had 2 in it, so we have to switch to another time. It is fine though. His new time means that his Daddy will get to come too and I will have someone to chat with while Jayne is in class.
Dancing his very first routine. So proud of him! He looked like a natural.
It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures! Adam gets in on the knight play.
Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…
What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
