Summer in Arizona means staying inside all day. Perfect time for school work!
We learned all about our digestive systems today. The girls thought it was really interesting. They asked a ton of questions and studied the pictures in the book for a looong time. We had a lot of fun acting out the digestive process on each others’ bellies.
Afterwards we colored some diagrams of the stomach and intestines.
Brooklyn was really particular about her diagram. She wanted to color it just like the picture in our book.
Payson thought eating was better than coloring.
Sierra started singing the ABC song while she worked. Brooklyn interrupted her to sing it louder. Sierra got annoyed so just started singing “8, 8, 8, 8” to trip up Brooklyn.
Singing about 8s really did it for Brooklyn.
Payson was searching for just the right color of crayon..
But then big sister ruined the fun.
He showed her, though, by finding one behind her chair.
I got a surprise from Sonlight in the mail yesterday. Earlier this year I won their annual photo contest and they sent me a framed copy of their 2009 catalog cover. That’s me and the girls on the cover! Exciting, huh??
Go here to get your free catalog with us on the cover! And when it arrives have fun looking through, there are a lot more pictures of other families inside with their stories of homeschooling. Sonlight is an amazing curriculum 🙂
After we finished school stuff, we started dinner.
Payson refuses to drink his bottle unless I’m holding him. He threw a major fit while I was slaving over Kraft macaroni and cheese.
Nothing says love like powdered cheese.
