Today was a very looooooong day here at Casa Stro. The youngest and I are battling a minor bug of some sort, but enough to sideline us so that we did not attend our usual Monday swim lesson.
We did have lots of reading! My oldest began Redwall. My daughter began The Phantom Tollbooth, and my youngest followed along with some Tumblebooks (free via our local library! To access the free version, check with your local branch).
We also began our language lessons (also free, courtesy of the library and Mango Language!). My kids have all taken Spanish for some time now, but only my daughter is continuing on. My oldest is into French, mainly because he’s been exposed to it through many of the songs at Homeschool Choir. My youngest started with Brazilian Portuguese today. We’re taking it very slow with him as he is only 8, but so far he’s doing well.
My daughter worked on her blog today, and my oldest got through a bit more of his Java assignment for class this week!
At church, the Middle School class through the Adult class have embarked on a Scripture Memorization challenge, so the oldest and I set up our notebook systems along with all of the paperwork!
I was up at 4:30am due to whatever is sidelining us, so needless to say, I am trashed after a long, long, long day!
