another week...done

Yay! Another week of Miller Academy and things are still going so well! I am not sure what I expected...for me to burn out by week 2? For the kids to forget their alphabet and make me feel like a total failure? For life to get away from me and I would forget that I am a teacher now? Thankfully, none of those things happened. We had a great week of learning and fun!




My new fave place to spend a couple hours (thank you, mom, for watching the kids) is Half Price Books. TRIPLE LOVE IT!! Plus they are having a 20% off everything sale for Labor Day...double score! I picked up a few things and had a blast digging through shelf after shelf of books. I am even more excited about THIS! Anybody want to join me Wednesday night to battle the other book crazed homeschool moms? I bet if we tag team we could come home victorious! You know how those homeschoolers can get.



I also picked up this fun little game at Target. We haven't played it yet, but I am excited to give it a go.


Here is our timeline so far. We are doing Mystery of History vol. 1. I am NOT doing my timeline as suggested by the author of the book. I am a rebel...a loner in that respect. I wanna do it my way. *Yes, I just broke out into song. Yes, that is a hole in our wall.*


Here are the 7 days of creation...ok, 6 days of actual work and 1 day of rest. Notice the bloody shark on day 5. Apparently he was in a fight that day thanks to Eli's active imagination. Next to that is Adam and Eve with their leaf clothes. Jubal with a harp and flute. Tubal-Cain with stripes of bronze and iron.



Then we have the ark with Noah and his sons. Noah has a boat on his chest and his sons have babies since they repopulated the earth after the flood.



Next came the IceAge. And that is where our week ended. Brrrrr...

Man, I bet one of the best benefits of homeschooling is YOU get a whole lot smarter yourself!!! You'll be able to say in a couple years that you're smarter than a 5th grader!

Your sweet post about starting school took me right back to earlier days. I was delighted to see that you have joined us at Apple Pie, Manda !

May your year be full of joy and wonder.

I'm a sucker for games. How did Scrabble Apple turn out??
