Photo WON!

I entered this photo in the local photo contest and won first place!!! I get to go up in a balloon next year and Lilahs photo will be in all the ads and flyers for next years races! I cant believe it! how amazing is that!

Ive been feeling kinda down about my hip and how much pain Im in and this just really perked me up!

Letter C

Well because Ive been down on a lot of days due to my hip weve only been able to do a few days a week of school. But none the less.. its going well!

We did Catipillars and the Letter C this week! The only photos I got are these! bad mommy! 
We have been doing many playgroups though! and getting ready for the next two week which is filled with playdates all the way up to Halloween! I cant wait to see my LO trick or treating.. its going to be a blast! woo hoo! 

Here is Sammo practicing.. and whats good is that every week we also do his name and review and hes getting really good at writing all his letters! 

and then the catippillar project we did! they loved it! we read Hungry Hungry Catipillar!
and of course our math puzzles and so forth.. but it was a slow week for us.. hopefully once we have answers about my hip Ill be able to do more! but for now Im happy with the progress!

B is for Balloon races!

I know its taken be a bit to post, things have gotten hectic and finding time to blog was not easy! I had a slip and fall and hurt my hip again. We still dont know whats wrong, Ill go for an mri this week to see if they can find out.

Delilah is now on a Nebulizer 2x a day! Were pretty sure she has asthma and giving her the treatments are no fun! Im hoping she will actually get used to it!~

So anyhow, on top continuing the homeschool, we are still doing lots of playdates with the kids. It helps break up the school week. We just do one to two things a day and then play the rest of the day. It seems to be working well for Sam. He in just this short month can now write his name! Ill have to get a photo of that for next weeks blog!

These are from the week we did B!
We went to the Balloon races which was so exciting! It was the first time our family was up at 4 am and went to dawn patrol! it was so amazing I know that it will be something we will continue to do for a long time!

We also Painted Blue B's

Sam wrote is As and Bs in his writing book

And we did some Math puzzles, which were alot of fun. you count the big one and try to match the number!

and of course I didnt get photos of everything but we also
* Read books about Bs and bees and bears etccc
* went on a B hunt
* practiced writing our Bs
* Baked cookies too
* played Baseball with a Ball and Bat

So even tough Ive changed the way we homeschool and its much less structured it works out better! like this week is the letter C which is taking about two weeks because Ive been down due to the hip and because Sam just wasnt quite getting the hang of writing Cs yet. so it was a good thing we are able to work at our own pace! I love it!

oh and one more thing I wanted to mention is that were working on our Halloween costumes! Im so excited.. its going to be a surprise!
