Weekly Report 2008:7

We had a busy week last week with Samuel sick. He's almost finished his antibiotics now and getting a lot better - he's even smiling at me again now. We kept up with the basic academics but got a bit "behind the plan" in some things. That's fine, we'll catch up some time, and besides, this is only 5yo kindergarten. One of the best benefits of homeschooling is that our family is able to spend time caring for each other. We did a lot of that with Sam this week. He got lots of cuddles from everyone, whenever he was feeling good enough to stand them. And I used a lot of head-space just keeping track of the doses and timing of all his medication.

Joshua did manage some "natural learning", experimenting with the physics of forces:Joshua built a tunnel out of Duplo just to act as a guiding channel for his Duplo arrow. I think it was mostly for the fun of seeing his arrow start at one end and blast out the other. He didn't manage to knock over his sturdy three storey house, no matter how many times he tried. And he did spend quite a while trying! I love Lego!
