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!

Homework:
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.
