This week was fairly routine, if there is such a thing. Sunday we had church and small group, with attempted rest time in between. Monday we had co-op. Elliot is really enjoying his math class. He is recognizing his numbers and loves all the games. This week they got to fish for numbers.
On Tuesdays Levi has violin lessons. He is taking lessons through the Suzuki program at the University of Evansville. Part of the methodology is for the parent to learn along side of the student. So guess who is also learning to play the violin? I have learned one "song" already. It is called the "Monkey Song". When his instructor told me the name of the song I thought, "How appropriate, that I learn the Monkey Song with one of my Five Little Monkeys!"
|In the evening on Tuesday we did a science experiment to see if sugar or honey would make a fluffier bread. Our conclusions were based on how the sweetener reacted with the yeast. Sugar won by a land slide.|
|Emilia gets where she wants to go these days. Here she is getting one of Elliot's magnet games on the side of the fridge.|
On Wednesdays the boys have started AWANA at a church here in Newburgh. They were invited by friends we met through homeschooling. They all enjoy it, but I think Elliot has to be the cutest and most excited about being a Cubbie. Unfortunately, this week he woke up with a fever and couldn't go. He was devastated. His teacher sent home the sweetest little post card.
Thursday night was the first night of Kids' Choir at church. Landon, Elaine, and Levi are all in choir. They will be learning songs to sing during the Christmas services this semester.
