Apparently, we've been keeping busy.
After a full month away from anything that smelled like schoolwork,
I went ahead and bought the My Father's World kindergarten curriculum I'd been looking at forever. Of course, I'm not using it exactly as it says, because I don't like following directions. And yes, I wondered through the first two weeks whether I should have ordered something different, or written my own curriculum, because I'm picky, cheap and indecisive.
I do think it's more of a preschool curriculum, as they take the entire school year to introduce the first 26 letter sounds, but that's fine because he's only four anyway. The science is pretty basic, too, but I'm attempting to expand on it by coordinating the themes with the older boys' science. And I really like the Bible/character lessons that go with each week's theme.
Other things that kept us busy...
Fake snow that came in the boys' stockings.
The big boys took up their knitting again. (The gloomy cold outside was inspirational.) And Littlest learned to cast-on.
Lots and lots of reading, thanks to new books and gift cards for Christmas!
A little Celtic crafting with our history lesson.
Escapes into the sporadic sunshine, and visits to the park after too many days indoors.
The ever-changing, ever-present fort, and Nerf war.
And yes, even a little baking (the kids' fruitcake recipe from our new Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook)...
