five. that is the number of days i have rung the official homeschool bell. larkin loves to have the bell rung for the beginning of our day. oh, and i forgot to mention that he brought me an apple on the first day of school. things are going well and we are both enjoying ourselves. here are a couple of shots from our week. math linking cubes...and a couple of weeks ago lumpy lost his tail. i decided that picking out the right color thread for a project and doing some basic stitching are pretty important skills to learn. i am sure there will be a button that needs to be resewn somewhere in his future, and i want him to be prepared. lucy was kind enough give lumpy a pillow for his trunk.
we are off tomorrow to the beach for the week. i must say this is the first vacation i have taken with a school room in tow. we are prepared with all of our lessons and a bag full of library books about the ocean. i hope to get to post while we are away. have a great weekend!
