Week in Review

This is only going to be one day of the week in review. It seems that I misplaced my camera after this day. And by misplaced I mean I set it somewhere one of the kids could get it and it disappeared until yesterday. It is back now so I can post what we did on one day this week. lol I'm glad to say that we are on our way to being back on track. We completed three and a half days of schooling and are well underway already today with finishing some of last weeks activities.

The Little People Nativity set has been played with a whole lot this week. All three kids are really enjoying it. Annabelle likes to set it up every night before she goes to bed. She does a really great job with this. I snapped this picture after she finished putting it all together.
Annabelle has done much better this week with knowing/identifying the letter Gg (and Ff). We will be moving on to the letter Hh on either Tuesday or Wednesday. We were able to introduce that letter to her this last week as well. Here she is playing with her gumball counting game. She enjoyed this a lot.
We finished up a project that we started a couple of weeks ago. The kids painted bottle caps purple and then we glued them on paper to make a bunch of grapes.
Here is Asa gluing.

I really think that they turned out pretty cute! Annabelle's is on the right and if you look at the bottom right corner of her paper she wrote her own letter Gg! She did a fantastic job.

Here is Asa mailing the Christmas cards. He really had a hard time sticking them in the envelopes so we only did that part once. Annabelle and Asa really both like this mailbox and played with it almost every day!

Asa loves this Melissa and Doug Beginner Shape Patterns set. It's really helping him along with learning his shapes too. I find it humorous that he is able to identify a rectangle, but has a hard time remembering what a square is. lol
Silas had a grand time during his Tot School this week. The bells were a big hit. I had to pay really close attention though, seems like he really enjoyed the way that they felt in his mouth. I normally don't have much of a problem with him putting things in his mouth, but this week he was all about it.
He also played with this activity a lot. I love his little hands in this picture. So much concentration is involved in sticking those pom poms into the Christmas tree spots!
Pretty proud of himself.

He also really enjoyed playing with the Nativity set. I think we were singing Away in a Manger when this picture was taken. We've sang that song close to a gazillion times this last week. The kids are practicing it for church this Sunday night. Now Silas doesn't really sing the actual words, but I know that in his little heart he is praising Jesus with the best of them! Make a joyful noise....and well he does that very well.
Here they all are having a picnic lunch and watching Finding Nemo (Ff review). The fourth little guy is my nephew Jude that I watch a few days a week.

Good review week. Looking forward to diving into this week. Last full week before daddy comes home! Looking forward to his return. Happy blogging.
