We had a short week for school this week as we had family from out of state visiting. That is one plus to homeschooling! Being able to adjust your schedule when needed. We stick to a pretty regular school schedule but it is nice to have that option when needed to do extra on a day or school on a day we wouldn't normally do. Last Saturday we got in some extra science by watching the Science Guy and Animal Tales program at Marina Days. Both kids learned some new things and it made great discussion! Thursday night we attended a homeschool desert social, so we got to meet some other homeschool families and learn about more opportunities available. I am thankful to be living where we are, as we have a large network of homeschool families and activities for the children to partake in. Abigail also had her first horsemanship/riding lessons. She brushed the horse, started to learn how to guide the horse and balance on a horse, I was so impressed! Aidan played in the dirt while he waited for big sister to be done with her lesson. Aidan was star of the week this week at preschool. He had show and tell and of course the boy brought one of his John Deere tractors to show, special snack day, and today the class bear comes home for the weekend, to have adventures with us!
