Weekly Wrap-up: Birdfood edition
Monday: Daddy came home after being away on business for 2 1/2 weeks. We didn't even pretend to do school; some things are more important.
Tuesday: Everyone was kind of tired and crabby, but we managed to survive and get a little done anyway. I think we all need some extra sleep! We did another chapter in House at Pooh Corners -only 4 left to go. Monkey says he wants to do another Winnie-the-Pooh book when we're done. We did our calendar stuff today. Not only did we put up today's date, but Monkey wanted to do the "extras" - look at the world map, sing the alphabet, that sort of thing. So we did. I took him on our first bike ride of the season - he has a Burley trailer that he rides behind me in. While we were out we listened to a bunch of different birds & looked at the various plants in people's yards. One house had tall grass. It was probably taller than I am. That's what passed for nature study today. Monkey had a bit of a tantrum in the middle of playing the penny game to practice phonics, so we put it away before the game was over, causing much sadness. Like I said, I think we all need more sleep.
Thursday: We got a little done. I am amazed at the mass of picture books I brought downstairs from next to my bed. They accumulate there from the before nap-time stories, and in less than a week, there was a sizable stack. They don't really fit into one of the "categories" that I pay attention to and try to accomplish, but Monkey makes sure that all the story reading gets done! He said more funny stuff too:
Mom: grabs the sunflower seeds
Monkey: "Are you eating birdfood?"
Mom: "Uh..." (Yep, very articulate that time.)
Dad: "Yes, that is birdfood."
Monkey: "Mom! Don't eat birdfood!"
Mom: laughs very hard. "Do you want some?"
Monkey: "NO! Birdfood is not good for my body!"
Mom: about falls over because she's laughing so hard!
He did eventually try the sunflower seeds, but he wasn't very impressed!
Friday: Another day that we're too busy to do the regular stuff. It's been that kind of week. We're all still feeling off, though I couldn't tell you what's wrong with any of us. Hopefully it will pass soon.
