Everett happily showing his Applegate turkey to the other kids.
Allan called to talk to me, he’s been calling me a LOT this week (he got a job in Idaho and we’re moving soon and have a lot to figure out in the next 10 days before our move!) but I needed to go really quick to either change a diaper or maybe finish up something lunch related (I can’t remember) so I handed the phone to Sierra for a minute.
After lunch my kids were still complaining about being hungry (like always) so they had one of their favorite things in the world- olives. The bowl full was gone in less than a minute! Payson’s also snacking on dried seaweed which is one of his favorite things.
Brooke is really struggling with some math concepts she learned in school this year. She really needed one on one time learning certain concepts and in a public school situation that’s not possible… I’ve tried helping her out as we go along in her workbook but it was obvious to me that she was missing a lot of crucial basic concepts. She couldn’t possibly go on in her work without having a firm foundation.
So I found this Math Tutoring DVD program online and after watching a couple of the sample lessons, bought it! And I’m so glad I did because it has been a game changer!! Brooke loves the lessons and is finally, finally getting those math concepts that she was struggling with! The entire 5th grade tutoring program was around $55, so it was a good deal! I love this purchase so much. 5 star review from me and Brooke!
She does pretty well with fractions, she only struggled a bit, so she flew through five of the fraction lessons in one day! You don’t have to do five in one day, clearly, but she was excited to know so much of what he was teaching and then also finally understand clearly the concepts she had been struggling with!
