Yesterday we curled up on Olivia's bed and read four chapters from a read-aloud, three days' worth of science, and a day's worth of history. (And they begged for more - they just love it all!) Math got done in on-again, off-again spurts throughout the day. Spelling tests were passed orally. Some things are just falling by the wayside. And it's okay. They aren't going to miss anything. Sometime before the end of the month we'll finish all we have to finish, and then we'll spend the next few weeks enjoying read-alouds of our choice, getting books switched out in preparation for the new year, and finalizing all of our plans for the new year. It will be fun!
Meanwhile, here are some snapshots of Steven on these sweet days (I'll post a couple of the girls and their favorite summertime activity tomorrow)...
Steven rolling on his back and saying, "Get my belly, Mommy!" Now, how can I resist that?
Steven running up and asking, "Mommy can I do school?" Then he'll pick his favorite book - our science book - find a comfy spot, and "read" to his heart's content.
Random shot - I just love my sweeties!
