Today was a good day! Started off the day with the schooling. It was a rainy and cold day outside today so we hung out indoors doing schooling, and cleaning house. Kids were fairly well behaved today. Not too bad. Since the kids worked so hard today on their schooling, and some of them even on helping around the house without much complaint, I thought a pizza and movie party would be fun. So tonight we had totino's pizza and watched "How to train your Dragon" for the family movie!
today we got a few packages in the mail from UPS. 1. was a new book for me. "Oceans Apart by Karen Kingsbury. Excited to get this and planning on beginning it shortly after posting this, unless I do some more workouts. My workouts today consisted of 25 reverse crunches, 50 jumping jacks, and a 10 minute run on the wii fit plus ( 1.578 virtual miles- 10 minutes: 84 calories burned ) WOOT!

2. 2nd package that arrived was Andrew's story for Language Arts "Mercy Watson to the rescue" Both Andrew, and Anna read this and I believe they both enjoyed it. I know Andrew did and that's saying something because he normally dislikes reading books)

3. I received the Brita filter system kit I won on mamavation last week woohoo! The kids are actually excited about drinking water now! Can't beat that! It came with a water pitcher filtering system, a water bottle w/ filter. We are loving it!

4. Division flashcards. this will be a handy tool!

For reading in addition to the book "Mercy Watson to the rescue" Seth read the story "Sarah Plain and Tall" from his textbook. We did math worksheets this morning- place values, multiplication-2 digit, and for Andrew- addition, and josh,liz- addition. Subtraction,addition,division flashcards. Science Anna did a lesson from her science textbook, we read it together,and reviewed the lesson review questions, and she wrote her vocabulary definitions down. Social studies they just did learning games online, and colored a flag of India.

tonight Anna was supposed to have ballet but the van wouldn't start. Started issues again. So we didn't end up going tonight, so we hung out at home and had a family fun night instead. It was nice.

workout goals tomorrow:
run on wii, 50 jumping jacks at the least, reverse crunches, pushups,handweights
drink 8 glasses of water.

Do you find it easy to homeschool

definitely not. It isn't easy by a long shot, but I still enjoy it and wouldn't trade it. It's definitely worth it. :-)
