After the trip back from our family reunion and getting settled back in, we didn't seem to have the energy to actually do any scheduled schoolwork this week. Of course, we still did educational things, but most of them were spur-of-the-moment.I've also included a few pics of what Robbie did while we were in West Virginia.
He is really into making paper bag puppets lately.
I believe this one is a Mario puppet (notice the mustache?).
Robbie explored some of our math manipulatives. Here's a pattern block flower.
He also proved that 55=55 on the math balance.
(Actually, I just walked into the kitchen and found it this way.)
Robbie's favorite read-alouds from the past week:
We finished the first Spiderwick Chronicles book. We will start the second one soon. We slacked a bit on Doctor Dolittle, though. The Three Pigs by David Wiesner was his absolute favorite. I read it to him. He read it to me.. and now he plans to read it to RockerDad. It's seen more love than any library book we've chosen before. I think we may have to purchase this one.
During our annual reunion, we stay in a house that is rented to skiers in the winter. The house is lovely and is surrounded by acres and acres of land with horses, ponds, forests, etc. It's nice to have our own place on this picturesque mountaintop. Robbie helped "Moo" (my Mom) pick apples in the back yard.
He drew pictures using his "A Boy's Adventure" drawing book.
He played with Play-Doh when he wasn't outside.
The day of the reunion, an enormous inflatable double water slide appeared in the yard. The kids spent uninterrupted hours on this thing. Here is a shot of Robbie sliding down with his cousin, Mallory.
My favorite picture was taken by my niece, Ashley, and doesn't even have Robbie in it. I really love this photo of my Mom with Ally, her great-granddaughter (my nephew's younger daughter). It's hard to tell, but they both have the same beautiful blue eyes.
