What a Week!!

What a week, and I mean that in the best way possible! It has only been a week and I can see a difference in Austin's and Abi's attitudes, mainly in Abi's attitude. While this week has been getting the kids back in the swing of reading and writing, they have learned a few new things too. In our study to learn about maple syrup, we started with learning about the state of New Hampshire. We checked out a few books on the state during our trip to the library on Wednesday (our official library day).

Each morning the kids wake up with excitement to see what progress their celery has made. When they notice a difference, they literally jump for joy!

I picked this workbook up from Target in their $1 bin

We even braved the outdoors this week. It helps that it rained the day before, so the heat and humidity were not as bad as usual. In the shade it was quite nice, and there was even a tiny breeze at time!
