Week in Review 2015: #26 and #27

Life

The kids have been enjoying the summer while I have been busy planning for our upcoming school year. We enjoyed a quiet Fourth of July at home. The kids and I made a dessert pizza which turned out really well. We topped it with fresh strawberries and blueberries.


I've never given my kids sweets before their first birthday (it makes their first taste of birthday cake that much more special and exciting), so Liam instead got to enjoy the fresh strawberries and blueberries without all the sugary goodness. He had no problem with this. It was his first time eating blueberries and he loved them.


Bridget had an extra special moment with Liam this week. I was vacuuming the living room and Liam was very upset, so Bridget picked him up and held him on the couch. She sang to him and rubbed his back and after only a few minutes he was asleep. She was very proud of herself for comforting her baby brother.


Homeschool


We've taken an even lighter approach to school for the month of July. I have been busy planning lessons for the new school year (we will be starting at the beginning of August). Curriculum (except for science) was purchased months ago. Our school room is almost put back together. We will be getting a new table for Bridget since the toddler table is way too small for her. With the boys also wanting to participate (yes, even Liam likes to get in the middle of things), the table has proven to be too small and too low to the ground and Liam constantly grabs at everything she's trying to work on. Hopefully her table/work area will be put together before we begin the school year.

History

We learned about George Washington and the battle for independence. I did not plan it this way, but it worked out very well with it being the Fourth of July. Along with the biographical books we borrowed about George Washington, we also borrowed a delightful little book called George Washington's Teeth (which were not made of wood, by the way). It gave us a lot of laughs and also a good opportunity to talk about how we can prevent our own teeth from falling out.
