Snow Days 2015




We've had snow a few times this week.  Monday we got freezing rain and ice….enough for school to be cancelled.  But the first day we got snow was Wednesday.  I was at work and Parker was at school….but the big beautiful flakes fell and Geoff took Grace and Nolan out to enjoy for a bit.  




These next 4 pictures are pretty funny.  Grace made a good-sized snowball….


…and threw it at Nolan….


….and he did NOT like it!


The snow was beautiful while it fell on Wednesday…but by the afternoon the sun had come out and melted away.


Friday.  More snow.  And accumulation!  I was home this day, but sick.  Grace came down with strep on Thursday.  I was already not feeling well on this day, but thought I'd just power through.  Well- Friday I woke up and was out of it.  So I went to the doctor and they gave me antibiotics for strep, as well…and thankfully woke up this morning feeling much better.  

So Geoff took them out to play.  He said they spent about 15 minutes getting everyone dressed…and then lasted less than 5 minutes!  Isn't that how it goes?








Then this morning they decided to give it one more try.  They did last a bit longer today.  ;)








These dinosaur boots!!!




Grace definitely has more pictures in this post that the other 2…I guess it's the way it turned out…but she had too many good ones not to post.

Letter of the Week Vv is for Valentine!

V is for Valentine!

Christian Preschool Printables has some really great file folder games.  Candy Heart Graphing.  This was just fun to do.  And her estimate was 1000.  ;)    Then after she graphed all of the hearts…we counted them and did a little comparing...like which one has the most, the least, etc?











We colored together.













Letter Hunt Worksheets from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  This was pretty difficult for her at the beginning of the year…and we had not done it in a while…and now I think it's starting to click.



I'm not sure if I've mentioned before…but I am starting to introduce sight words and am using 1+1+1's You Can Read as a guide.  So far so good!


{I got out all the stamp pads this time for fun because she was so excited to use them…but next time I probably won't!}














I've been catching up on a few Letter of the Week posts this week, but published and dated them around the time we actually did those activities.  If you want to see them:
