Week 3

Finished week three today. Still moving things around and finding our groove. Nikolas is flying through his math book, literally he is on page 103 of 250. He picks up on new things so quickly and he isn't even 5 yet! His birthday is in October. Nikolas told me that math and science are his favorite things to do in school.

Joshua is so stubborn and sometimes so difficult to get through to. It can be very frustrating for both of us. He is really smart and reading more and more words every day. But, I know he is easily distracted and really doesn't like to be told what to do. This may be a hereditary issue. Just sayin'. But we did talk last night about what he enjoys most and least. He told me he likes science the best (after guitar and art) and then math. He is over all the handwriting and copywork. I think I'll back off on that only because his handwriting is pretty good already.

This week we finished learning about Egypt and started Ancient Greece and Rome. We learned about weather and it was great that the boys could tell their dad why the thunder comes after the lightning and what the thunder really is.
I think I mentioned this is week two but I wish everything held my boys' attention like Curious George. He is a miracle worker!
