The one constant I have in my life is that inconsistencies will always be present. This week wasn’t near as great as last week. Last week Charlie seemed much more on task and motivated to learn. Most of this week he’s been completely off task when I’m not reminding him and he’s been less than eager to learn. Because I know to expect inconsistencies in this thoughts, moods and energy levels, this week did not come as surprise to me. I was a little bummed that our “awesome” streak came to a halt, but that’s ok. We’ll get back to awesome, I know we will!
Here are some shots of some fun activities we did this week.
This is your brain…
This is your brain on drugs. (Not really! This is what would happen if you didn’t have cerebrospinal fluid to keep your brain from rattling around in your skull.)
Here is the brain protected by the cerebrospinal fluid.
We “did school” at the park on Thursday for a change of pace. It was a beautifully cool morning. Cool means like 89 degrees!
Charlie’s a little “bugged out” by all of the critters we saw at the park.
On Friday we went to our first homeschool field trip to an “old” mansion in Columbia.
The kids got to play games similar to the children in the late 1800s.
For family who reads this blog, I’ll post more shots of Ryan sometime, I promise! Ryan is loving third grade so far! There have been no complaints and things are going well for him!
