Jasmine gets home at 2:00 and we do homework before the others get home. We start working on spelling on Monday since it is so difficult. This weeks' words: how - round - dishes - blue - argue - diver - enjoy - overpay - afternoon - vacation - early - learn (What grade were you in when you learned to spell vacation or argue??)
Sentences - Braden found four spiders in the corner of the dark barn. The soil there was moist and cool.
If you notice that my kids seem to always wear the same colors, that's because there is somewhat of a dress code here. Pants must be blue or beige (includes neat jeans) held up with a belt, and a plain collared shirt (K-5-5th don't have to have a collar)in one of the three school colors.
We used 1/2 cup applesauce in place of 1/2 cup oil.
OUR OVEN IS FINALLY FIXED! (We've been without it since early Nov)
We decided to make some green frosting for St. Patrick's Day.
That led to experimenting with colors.
The high school kids are home at 3:00.
Cupcakes are ready. They are still warm so the frosting is melting.
Frosting face. (Jasmine had a cleft lip and palate so she has bone grafting and many years of braces ahead)
When everyone gets home it's time to start jobs. Jessica walks the dogs three days a week, Tyler three and Adam one.
Adam tidies up the bathroom. He cleans it before school since he doesn't leave until much later than the others. Then it just needs a touch up after school. Adam doesn't get home until 4:00 so we have an hour between each group coming home.
It's off to ballet.
