Secular Thursday: Homeschool Days 3/25/10

"Living is learning and when kids are living fully and energetically and happily they are learning a lot, even if we don't always know what it is."

~John Holt

I have nothing particularly secular to post about today.  It was just a regular week for us.  Oh!  We did get our very first Jehovah's Witnesses come to our door yesterday.  The lady was very nice and talked to the kids, invited us to a thingy, and handed us a pamphlet.  When Robotson asked her what it was, she told him that we (B and I) could tell him about it.  I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't a big deal.

 Robotson and I made a few changes to our weekly schedule.  We are getting a lot better at working things out together.  Our days off are now Wednesdays and Thursdays.  I'm counting park day and grocery day because there is so much learning happening.  Now the kids can spend those two days hanging out with B or doing whatever they want without me interrupting them.  Plus, I can take advantage of those days now too.   We changed bedtimes around, chores, and added some Wii exercise time.

In a small health update - I have exercised six days in a row.  Go me.

But I Am an Alligator (Charlie and Lola)There isn't much point to breaking this down by category.  Robotson and I haven't read since Monday.  The girls and I have been reading Charlie and Lola books.  Tuesday we all worked to clear out the weeds from under our apple tree.  After 10 years of neglect, it was a full afternoon of work.  It's quite lovely now though and I'll try to post pictures as it blooms.  Yesterday we spent the afternoon with some homeschooling friends that are helping us with the AIR picnic.  We bought all the needed supplies and filled the eggs for the egg hunt!

I don't know what we did all week.  Monday I took care of a ton of things on my to-do list.  Oh yeah, I also cleared out some of the kids winter clothes that no longer fit, and pulled down the summer clothes.  We made a donation to Goodwill, and freecycled a bunch of stuff too.  I guess it's a little bit of spring cleaning going on around here.

Super Smash Bros. BrawlI think this goes without saying, but we do more than what I post here.  I just can't always remember when I'm trying to type it all up with the sounds of Robotson playing Super Smash Bros Brawl, and Dimples is climbing all over me, as I blow bubbles through the wand she is holding up to my mouth, while finding out why Funny Girl needs the rubber mallet.  I know I am forgetting lots of things.  So I'll leave you with this:
The Muppet Show: Music, Mayhem, and More! - The 25th Anniversary Collection
While cleaning up under the tree, we got down to the really nice naturally composted soil that was filled with worms.  The kids were playing with them while we sang There's a New Sound by Scooter from the Muppets.
