I hope you had a wonderful Holiday break. We took it real slow in December. We made lots of cookies, did some crafts, and just enjoyed each other in the midst of a busy time. I am thankful that we had the time to take things slow but still able to get learning in. Even if the learning looked different than normal.
We had time to be thankful when my hubby was in a car accident and his car was totaled. This happened just before Christmas. The Lord was with him as he was able to walk away with just a small burn on his arm from the air bag. When you have a husband that is on the road many weeks of the year this is something that is on your mind, a lot. Thankfully we got it all worked out by the beginning of the New Year.
Getting back to the school schedule has been easier than I thought it was going to be. We were all ready to get back to school. Mickey was using Reading Egg in December to keep up her reading. I was pleasantly surprised how well she is doing now that we are in the regular reading work.
We have also started our second book with Real Science for Kids with Mickey. We are using the lapbook that they sell on their site. We are loving this. It is making learning the concepts so much easier. We read a section of the book and answer the one or two questions on her lapbook. It is colorful and she loves it. Science is already her one of her favorite subjects.
