Even though, on my calendar, April did not look especially busy (no birthdays, no major holidays, not big visits, etc.) our first week back to school was crazy busy.
|Teresa does well with her reading lessons but much prefers math.|
|Entertaining Thomas with my phone.|
|His weakness is when you put his hood on.|
|Bumble Bee Thomas|
|Brigid uses my feet to build a castle tent.|
|Blessed Sacrament, a Dominican parish in Madison I visited on Saturday.|
On Monday we did a nice portion of bookwork, a chapter in religion and read "Lysis Goes to the Play" but the best part of the day was finally getting outside. The grass was suddenly green instead of brown and it was still chilly in the 40s, but it was sunny and dry and we hadn't had that in almost 2 weeks.
|Elizabeth drew the entire Solar System|
|Cecilia drew a zoo with different animals. Here she works on the tiger.|
|Felicity's rainbow shell.|
|When she realized she hadn't actually drawn any of the animals in the zoo.|
|Felicity's rainbow unicorn.|
By the end of the week we were still behind on Science but we did finish reading our book on Archimedes, which was very good, and spend a nice amount of time playing outside, which is in itself a most valuable time for learning.
