Tuesday's theme was fish. Here are the boys doing watercolor painting on paper plate fish.
One day in Science we collected objects to see what things floated and what things sink. We did this with things inside the house and then with things we collected on a nature walk. My boys really loved this theme!
Does it sink or float?
floaters and sinkers
Here are the boys giggling as I painted their feet for a fun craft we did.
How cute are these?
Wednesday was the first day of fall and even though we don't have seasons here in Guatemala I was still very excited. I love fall and always get a little homesick this time of the year.
For our "first day of fall" breakfast I made letter F pancakes.
Here is a closer look at our leaves and acorns. Next I plan to add a few pumpkins.
We read "The Foot Book" by Dr. Seuss and made these. My boys love that book!
It was really cool to see how the water would bulge over the top as the glass filled with coins.
I made these fish cupcakes for the boys to share with their friends that night.
a cute fox craft we did on Thursday
Our themes for Friday were frogs and firemen.
F is for frog
Frog coloring sheets and a fun song we learned. My boys have sung it over and over again.

So that is our week. As I wrote on the blog title- it was a fun one! Homeschooling, although a great challenge, can be very rewarding.
