Homeschooling Journal: January 2014 Part 2


Gym / Ballet Co-op
In Ballet, we only had the two girls, but it was lots of fun. We talked about lost teeth, pierced ears and such. We had a hard warm-up and some muscle-building exercises for legs. We also did all of our rhythmic counting in French. We loved it!

1) do all five positions, feet only
2) do all five positions, arms only
3) do all five positions, both feet and arms
You can refer to the chart I gave them for Christmas.

Classical Conversations

Every day, we review our Classical Conversations memory work. Today, I was playing the recording while we were having lunch, so A could also review with us (she is napping while we homeschool).

Homeschooling a Toddler: Putting on and taking off
A loves her cupcake backpack and all she did for about an hour was putting it on and taking it off. She was really enjoying learning the skill and I did too, except that once we got to time number 200 (yes, she required my assistance for this activity), I was getting sore arms. haha

Boo Boos Don’t last forever (thank God!)
While I was out volunteering at the local chapel, my children stayed home with dad. Dad went to the other room and the two children decided to do a bit of rough housing. Needless to say, somebody got hurt. A tripped and fell, hitting a mahogany chest with her mouth on her way down. Her top teeth went right through her bottom lip! What?! I didn’t even know that was even possible. Anyway, there was blood everywhere, the doctor got a call as did I. I immediately rushed home and applied some Thieves and Purification essential oils both inside and outside the lip. The bleeding stopped. Graciously, the doctor made a house visit to check on her and we were happy to learn that no stitches were needed. It sealed up well. Now, I am applying Lavender at night. Not only will it help her sleep, but it will also help reduce the scar.
