Schoolhouse Review Crew Day


Everything we did today for school was from being on the Schoolhouse Review Crew. The first thing I did was set-up a ZooWhiz account for Brent. He was happy to do school today. We then headed outside. The weather was cooler than usual at 84*. That was in the morning now it's 96*. Anyway, we went outside to do some Family Time Fitness. I glad to report that I was able to do the whole lesson. The children cheered me on with, "You can do it! You're almost done." ah, what sweet kids I have.

About 30 minutes later I was not huffing and puffing anymore so I called the children to the living room for our read aloud time. This too is a Schoolhouse Review item, A Cry From Egypt. Of course I was trying my hardest not to cry so instead I was quivery. While I was reading I would stop and talk to them about the book. I want the children to really understand how hard it was for the Israelites during the time of slavery. After a few chapters I had to stop reading. It was hard to put the book down but I was getting hungry.

We ate lunch and listened to an Adventures in Odyssey by Focus on the Family. Caleb loves listening to these. Normally I go to my room and eat because it's so loud but today I sat and listened and of course really enjoyed it. In fact I have to wait until tomorrow to find out what happens.

Once we were done with lunch we all went back to the living room for another read aloud, My Side of the Mountain. This is related to our Once a Week Unit Study~Forest for the Trees. I am suppose to be wrapping it up with this book but I'm only half way. Maybe I'll read more tonight.

While reading to the children there was a knock at the door. Lo and behold it was another Schoolhouse item from Beeyoutiful. Of course I had to pause our reading just long enough for me to open the box so I could touch and smell these wonderful products. I feel so spoiled. Here's what I received. Hair Shine-In Conditioner, Laveshmint Daily Moisturizing Lotion, Laveshmint Hydrating Toner, and Vanilla Dream Body Butter, it all smells so heavenly!!!
Once I read a few more chapters I was off to wash my face and pamper myself.
 Now I'm off to get some more school stuff ready.

Edited to add that Joshua completed a Time4Writing lesson too. I never did get school stuff ready. I ended up going outside with Brent to get a fire going in the fire-pit. He wanted to cook a potato in the ashes.
