Busy times here at The Joys of Home Educating
Spring has sprung here in NY, Easter comes early and Molly's birthday party is the day before Easter (pirate theme)...church programs with the kids singing....insert big sigh...so much happening...BUT we need to take time to stop and smell the daffodils! I am taking the kids away for a couple of days to Mystic, CT to the seaport. They are excited to stay over in a hotel (not my favorite thing) and eat out..There is a lot to see and do for the kids (education related).
On our way we are stopping off at the Submarine Force Museum to check out the USS Nautilus. Looking forward to our adventure together.
On Saturday we are hosting our Annual Easter Egg Hunt (I know I said that our Halloween party was our only BIG party each year for this year, but this is turning into a BIG one also..shh...hubby wont even realize there are 60 people here...lol) So when we return, I will be working on the finishing touches for that!
School related stuff....
We have been pluggin away at math, reading, grammar and Easter fun stuff here in our "book work"...still reading Dr Seuss and really enjoying our outside time and day adventures with friends.
I have a recommendation to those who have an IPad and children in the Elementary grade levels....Stack the States application. I can't say enough about it. Zachary, using this app, self taught himself all of the state capitals and landmarks in the states! Very impressed with this app. We have now moved onto Stack the Countries!
IF you are on Facebook, I do invite you to check out my page for the party planning business
that I started. I love to see your opinion of things and to show what I am working on! You can go HERE to become a FAN! 8)
Check back on Friday to see how our adventure went in Mystic!
Until then - BE BLESSED!
