I can't believe it has been over 2 months since my last post.
I guess I will find out if any of you are still reading my blog after this post. ;)
We have had a good start to our school year. Monkey has finished All About Reading Pre-Reading and the preschool level of IXL math. Ladybug has finished All About Reading Level 1, All About Spelling Level 1, IXL KG level and half of the 1st grade level and Happy Handwriting. Unicorn has a great start into her 7th grade year and is getting ready to start her 3rd year of NaNoWriMo.
The kids took a few days off of school the first week of October to go camping with Papa and Nana. They had a great time fishing, hiking, going on a scavenger hunt, painting rocks and checking out the Ranger Station and Fire Look-out Towers. When they got home Ladybug learned how to ride her bike. Once Ladybug figured it out then Unicorn decided to try to learn to ride her bike again. She has hydrocephalus and some issues with balance so that combined with a REALLY bad bike riding accident 5 years ago had her pretty scared of bike riding. I am happy to report that she has overcome that fear and is now a bike rider! :)
This month we are preparing for NaNoWriMo and studying Elections and doing some Art projects. Ladybug and Monkey also started a new spelling program (that we love) and I will be doing a review on it VERY soon. We also started a book club and have read Charlotte's Web and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Next month we will study Thanksgiving and participate in NaNoWriMo. I hope you will check back soon for more reviews and an update on what we are learning!
