We celebrated Caleb's birthday on Sunday afternoon. He also went laser tagging twice, once on Sunday with cousins and again on Thursday with friends.
Math is review for all four kids. They're spending time getting extra practice on things we are still struggling with and skipping through problems that they fully understand.
Caleb studied survival skills in Science. He practiced building a shelter of his own.
We all studied mollusks and worms in science and made notebook pages for them. The boys tried to dig earthworms to observe, but they said the dirt was just too dry and they couldn't find any.
In history, we finished the unit on South America. Caleb finished reading By the Great Horn Spoon!. Josiah read parts of Gold Rush Fever and started Stuart Little. Rachel read Nate the Great, The Long Way to a New Land , and When Jessie Came Across the Sea. Jada read a lesson and a half in Sonlight's I Can Read It. We read five chapters of Moccasin Trail for our read-aloud.
The girls built a floor puzzle of the solar system one day. In the first picture their standing on the sun and they're shouting because they're burning. The second picture they are standing on earth ... their home.
