Downtime (53/180)

Another lee week.

R went to soccer practice and a game, which they won this time, including goals scored by him.  Exciting!  The girls did a lot of climbing during the practice:




All the kids went to their MAHC classes on Tuesday.  W attended his art and writing classes at Teen MAHC on Thursday.

Here is J in her class making counting sculptures:


W played D and D several times.

D did (lots of) spontaneous crafting and creating, including this lovely depiction of her favorite treat:


(Don't worry. She took a bath shortly after this was taken.)

R did some independent reading.

This week included 4 days of instruction.

Fort Box (41/180)

D was very creative this week.  She made some play food out of hot glue and paint:


And she and J made, painted, and interior decorated a fort out of a big box:


R and D and J attended their religious education classes.

W, R, and D worked with LOF.

W read independently.

R practiced reading, as did D.

J asked to do 'real' lessons so we got her the first pre-Explode the Code workbook.
