First day of schcool!

Just realized I didnt even take a picture of Lyla! Darn. We will do a day 3 of school picture instead. Ha. Lyla was resistant at first when I told her we were going to do school because she wanted to play with Barbies but once we got started she really enjoyed it and was asking for more! We started out by reading “Ladybugs and other insects” and “The Butterfly Alphabet Book”. She loved the Butterfly Alphabet book. We talked about our favorite butterflies and it was great for letter recognition as well. After we were done reading we made Footprint Butterflies.  Lyla loved it and I think they turned out so cute!

Supplies:

-Paint colors of your choice

-Paintbrush

-Paper

-Google Eyes ( optional)

All I did was paint Lyla’s feet and then had her stamp them on the paper. She painted the body, stuck the google eyes on and drew the antennae. Super easy and she was asking to do it again the next day!

What we’re reading next week….

Next week is going to be a bug and seed themed week! Lyla saw the books I got at the library and announced that she doesnt like bugs. Hopefully the books will change her mind a bit? Here is what I picked out:

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Such a classic! I have ALWAYS loved this books. We actually read it yesterday so I know she enjoys this one 🙂

An Apples Life

The Butterfly Alphabet Book

How a seed grows

We just planted a few things so this should be fun!

How to hide a butterfly

One watermelon seed

My 1st blog post!

Welcome to my blog! I started this blog to document our Homeschooling journey. Cant wait to share all of the fun things we are doing and everything we are learning.

Today I made some sidewalk “paint” and the kids had a great time writing their names on the sidewalk. Abby played with her toys while the big kids painted 🙂

It was such a beautiful day that we enjoyed our lunch outside. Looking forward to summer so we can spend lots more time outdoors.
