The girls have been longing for a bunk bed for a full year or more and this week we got one - and gave their room a complete make-over. D went to IKEA with me and helped find and choose the bed (the one we wanted wasn't there and we had to decide on a different one) and accessories. W and R helped by moving the old bed out of the room. M and R built the actual bunk bed. Then the girls and I spent LOTS of time organizing and sorting out stuff from the room to fit it into the new configuration, which includes a desk for each girl. They are very excited. D is also calculating how many 'finishing touches' she can afford with money she's saved from birthdays, etc., like a mirror, fairy lights, or similar.
That didn't leave a lot of time for more academic pursuits this week, but ... W, R and D worked with LOF. W read independently. R read with support and completed The Sinking of the Titanic, 1912 by Lauren Tarshis. D and J practiced reading.
I read to the girls: What Baby Needs by William Sears
God's Dream by Desmond Tutu
Kings of the Castle by Victoria Turnbull
W led a D and D game for a friend's birthday party.
This week included 3 days of instruction.
