I so wanted to focus on working on Aa stuff today, but no we so did nothing from the lesson plan for today. So we did cleaning and laundry so we're ready to pack clothes for our trip and the food is ready we just have to pack the camping gear.
We did end up starting our journal today and Buggie really did a great job just lines and squiggles, but hey he's happy writing and loves to read could I ask for more. Plus he woke up this morning and asked to go water the garden, I was so proud. I'm so glad he loves to do so many things and loves to be with his mommy.
I hope you all have a wonderful start to the week.

God Bless you all and Happy Monday

Back to school

So we actually did make it through the first week of preschool. Ok it was 2 weeks ago and we haven't done anything scheduled since, but hey we're working on it. So we focused on the letter Aa. We are going through in alphabetical order and working with a color, number and shape along with starting spanish. Our curriculum is explained in a previous blog.

We started with lots of puzzles. We worked through our curriculums for the letter A, sorry we have pictures of that somewhere I just don't know where. Buggie is up to a 60 piece puzzle, which for an almost 3 yr old is pretty good sine he can do it all himself.

And the man loves his puff ball's. He loves to count, size, and anything else he can think of doing with them. He's learning how to do sequenceing with the puff ball's too, which is interesting to watch and I love seeing the "ahh haa" moments.

So Buggie loves music in every form, CD, live, his own you name it he'll do it and listen to it all which is good cause mom and dad have 2 way different tastes at times and he'll jam with us both on any given day which is always fun to do and see.

The man is a nature lover and if he could do all his learning outside during all seasons he would. First thing in the morning the first question is, "Can we go outside now mommy", this is while he's still in his bed. He loves all animals and chat's with his squirrel and bird friends on a daily basis, which is really cute because they actually chatter back to him and come up pretty close to Buggie, some of the squirrels just sit and watch Westley from a branch, while they chatter back and forth.

He is a painter by trade, haa haa haa, the man loves to play and paint, mud, water and anything else are awesome palettes to use. Hope you enjoy, we're going to try to post zoo pictures from last week this coming week, haa haa we'll see.

God Bless you and your families,

Gretchen and Buggie

Life Happened

Sorry, I spent more time looking at other people's blogs rather then doing mine. Our house is in disaster mode so it makes it very hard for me to be organized or to want to DO school, so usually we watch a show while eating morning meal and then head outside, or we do something coloring related. We had lots of fun outside so I really don't regret the time not doing structured learning. Westley loves all things outside. Constant playing and learning go side by side. So we have lots of fun together. When and if we ever get our house put together correctly we can then do some serious indoor learning hee hee hee.Being able to just hang out and do what we want is a great thing. We're going have fun exploring whatever Buggie wants whenever he wants, which is great for him and mommy. Lots of unknown learning going on which amazes me.

I really am going to try to keep up and blog at least once a week, gonna try for 3 times, but am realistic. Hope you all are enjoying the weather and end of school-year for most.

God Bless and keep you all.
