Weekly Wrap-Up: Begin with Loss, End with Loss

Any week that begins with loss,
of any kind,
is bound to be interesting...
We hosted a small Super Bowl gathering on Sunday evening,
which ended with not only at loss for the Colts...
...but a loss of some blood for Little Wild Man!

He and I spent three hours in the ER...

Needless to say, I "canceled" school on Monday...

With the week beginning on such an interesting note,
I kinda figured that we would not get everything
I had planned accomplished-
which was correct...

BUT, we still got SOME schoolin' done!
We tied "The Rainbow Fish" to an Ecology lesson...
...which did not end well for our poor fishy friend Fred!

We also made it rain in a bucket
when we learned about the water cycle...

Jungle Girl continued her novel study
on Felicity...
Math was continued with our Math-U-See
with some sweet surprises...
(read more HERE)
Baby Girl and Little Wild Man also had fun with
this "Roll a Valentine" math activity,
courtesy of "Confessions of a Homeschooler"...
Little Wild Man also worked on his counting skills
with the use of this muffin tin math game
I got at KidsSoup...
(Look at him go!)
We practiced some fine motor skills
with the use of these Heart Lacing Cards...
Practicing color words was never more fun than with
this booklet...
...and don't forget the Valentines the kiddos
got to give to their friends!

As I mentioned in the title, our week also
ended with loss-

Baby Girl lost her 1st tooth!

I am glad to say she was eating an apple when it happened
and not a cupcake...

(We had cupcakes for Monday's breakfast after our ER fun night...)

  7. Great week. You had so many wonderful activities! I'll hopefully get an email to you soon explaining how to turn on the email me thing.

  8. That the Colts lost stinks, but losing a first tooth is fun stuff! My ds actually swallowed the first two teeth he lost. Goofy kid. ;-)
