Some of the Things we do :-)

I don't post here often, as it is kind of more of a "site in waiting" for when the boys are a bit older and we are in the full home school swing of things. However, I thought I would post a few of things we do everyday that are part of our schooling life :-)

We build forts !!

We visit farms and look at chickens :-)

We visit farms and piggy back with daddy.

We read and read and read.

We play outside in snow, rain and oh yeah sunshine.

Our day basically goes like this...
7:00 Wake-up, get dressed and get ready
8:00 Breakfast
8:30 - 10:00 I call it "structured learning time" Mostly it just means things that mommy has made for us to do -- Scripture Activities, reading, coloring, play dough, Spanish and numbers and letter....everyday is an adventure
10:00 Snack
10:30 - 12:30 PLAY :-) (These are basically our free centers everyday....we have upstairs and downstairs activities....dramatic play, blocks, cars, train set, tractor set, writing table, sensory table, play dough...etc.)
12:30 Lunch
1:00 - 3:30 Nap time (Yes everyone take a nap)
3:30 - too dark...OUTSIDE
6:00 Dinner
7:00 Scriptures, songs and bed

OK so that is our day...very busy, but very fun! Right now I have 7 kids that join us for "preschool" on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. It is great, because it gives Aaron a chance to socialize with other kids and he really love that. All and all I think he is having fun learning and that is what counts!
