Grade 2 Week 34

When we like something, we LIKE something :P

Like the Commander Toad and Nate The Great books.

We also learned more about the world around us,

as well as indulged in some silliness.

I found a Babar color the dots thingy book, and you had fun with a few pages.

In fact, you are such a little artist, one of your favorite past times is drawing, sketching & doodling.

Your other love, as you know, is reading.  We got to meet up with Mary and a friend of hers at the library this week.

Then you roped Lizzie the Lizard into a Minecraft Card Game.

You walked the dog a few times on your own this week, which was so big-boyish.

and speaking of BIG, we were compelled to get these huge soft pretzels, which seemed to disappear in record time :)

Grade 2 Week 33

We try to keep our reading material diversified,

and for now, you have been very receptive to just every book that we borrow.  Most of the time, you are happy for me to pick the books out, but sometimes you will hand me a book or two that had caught your eye.

We also try to learn about important people and how they affected the world we live in today.

For this particular week, the Stikbot that you got for your birthday saw a lot of action :)

They were up to all kinds of antics. :)

One even went all Star Wars on us.

You still had stikbot on the brain at Bible Class later that week.

We discovered planking while watching movies,

After watching Rogue One, we found that there was a HUGE display at Walmart.  Now how are we going to resist that, huh?

You look a lot like your Aunt Marsha in these photos :)

Here's you loving your Cosmic Carrot :)

And the time we did Spanish in bed...

and joined in with the little ones to make some Art.

And how we delighted in a tiny acorn that had a huge cap :)

Or marveling in the magic of an ice arch :)

Grade 2 Week 32

Nate the Great! Nate the Great!

It hasn't been too exciting around here, plus like I said, school has been slow since we've been super busy lately - still doing some, just not at the rate that we were.

This photo below is us waiting at the gazebos at Lowe's while waiting for Daddy :)  It was a good thing I had a snack in my purse. We were hungry.

Grade 2 Week 31

That week, we introduced you to the world of the Boxcar Children.
They were the abridged versions, and you went through them at lightning speed.

We were still on a Nate the Great binge, and revisited some Dr. Seuss & whatnot.

Oh, and you can tell by the books that we borrowed, that I am quite late in posting these.
Not really much of an excuse except that I have been super busy of late.

A random breakfast.

Time for some craftiness :)

Grade 2 Week 30

WE LOVE BOOKS!!!!

Especially silly ones.

And I have been super busy lately, and so we have had to have school wherever.

I dug back out the little yellow portable desk and you have been using it a lot.

I've also decided I need to be in more of the photos that YOU are in, regardless of how I THINK I look.
