Week 4

This was a weird week to say the least! It has all been going around about having Homeschool Spirit Week and sadly my kids just really wasn't all that into it. Having pajama day was no big deal because they do that all the time anyway! When I tried to talk them into mismatched clothes you would have thought their father was speaking through them, and the look I got! Well it just wasn't happening! The one thing they were pretty excited about was coloring their hair. I really don't wanna get all chemical with them so I looked into using Kool-Aid but everyone said it won't show on dark hair. That pretty much says it won't work on Fox. So it is Halloween time I figured the spray color. What a waste.

There was barely enough in the cans to do their hair and it was pretty much gone that afternoon. I did snap a few pics though. Damian was not happy at all. He had picked white and it didn't show on his hair any. So I mixed the blue and pink to get a purple and well, he just wasn't very happy with me.

I am pretty certain that out of all 3 Foxs looked the best. Though it was gone by that afternoon. I really remember that spray stuff working better when I was young.

They also decided this week to be archaeologists or something with the cows yard. Our back yard is full of cows. They decided to go see what they were up too and ran home to tell me of all the bones they found EWWWWWWW.

Fox said he was quite happy wioth his bone armor and Skyler said she is working her arms to fight the good fight alongside her brother. No, I have no idea where they get this stuff from. I had imagination but WOW! Fox also informed me that many indian tribes used bone in times of battles. I think he has watched way too much 500 Nations.

On Monday we just finished up Naya Nuki. They were pretty thrilled to hear she made it back to her family. On Tuesday we did Massachusetts and that was it! They enjoyed that. I think they enjoyed the Boston Cream Pie more though. Fox has been telling me over and over One if by land and two if by sea. Yes they all enjoyed Paul and his midnight ride.

They also liked their lunch of beef jerky, dried fruits and peanuts. Damian is so not the photogenic child anymore.

Onto Wednesday. We did candy school and artist study. They used all the Hershey math books and studied John Trumbull. Most of the math activities was review but they had a blast anyway. Skyler is completely thrown by fractions so I know once we get there she will need some help.

This is what 300 reese pieces looks like. That is what a candy starved child looks like!!

This is Fox working on his version of The Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker Hill. That is my tongue! I so do this when I am concentrating. I noticed it and I had to have a picture of this. Sometimes I look at that boy and all I can see is his dad. He is so like him even though he looks like me. His mannerisms, his personality so much is just like his dad. That tongue though is all me!

The top left is Fox under that is Skyler and to the right is Damians. He refused to add color to his for whatever reason. I am still wondering why all the boys drew were stick figures but I guess since it is their art then I can't say much about it.

They also made a notebooking page. This belongs to Skyler.

On Thursday we did History and that was it. We reviewed the explorers we have studied so far and added them to the timeline books they have. All the kids have Winterpromise timeline books because I think they are that awesome! After that they spent the rest of the day coloring and cutting their indian homes.

This is Damians pueblos.

That was our week pretty much. We all also enjoyed watching our bunny chow on some fruit loops at my desk too.

For some unknown reason she is always trying to jump off of stuff. The bunny technically belongs to my oldest daughter Devlin but we keep her company during the day!

Don't forget to see our week 2 of Magic School


  1. History looks fun! Love the bunny too :)

  2. Wow, I'd say you rocked this week! Lots of good times and creative projects. My dd has been after me to do the kool aid hair coloring thing but she's got really dark hair. I'll have to break the bad news to her. . . .
