No we aren’t actually IN Russia this week, just studying it in history. The Rus, the Golden Horde, Byzantines, Ivan the Great, you know!
Zoe has been really into making meals lately, too. She often creates her own fancy lunches, and has mentioned being a chef when she grows up; either “at that fruit stands in Cambodia” or “at the fancy burj” – she means the burj al-Dubai. She’s kind of obsessed with that place.
After learning that Tyler’s Kate (can we just say Aunt Kate, now?) likes homemade popcorn I wondered how it’s done and found that it’s easy. Why didn’t I do this before?!! So simple to just make popcorn on the stove!! Why buy that microwave junk!?
Avi loves crafting. For homeschool lessons he isn’t really into learning letter sounds, likes writing, and loves math. But cutting, pasting and crafting is the favorite. I have revived all my lapbooking skills which is fun for him. This week we focused on Frog and Toad. He also is a social little man, so we are sure to catch up with friends at the BX or during library time.
Lastly, the weather has warmed… Now the back lot is a mud pit. The kids go out daily to play and come directly in to the shower!!
