I have no idea what is going on with this blog. I am having problems getting images to download onto this blog. It is so strange because I am not having any problems with my other blogs. It is so frustrating. My attempts have caused me to get quite agitated and not post anything on here! I will share quickly what we have been up to.
I have continued the kids on the computer working on all of their topics. Our main focus has been phonics and helping the boys get to the next level in reading and becoming familiar with words. Punctuation and other sentence structures. They have been creative with Pokémon, Lego’s, and Heroscape. As well, pretend play with their stuffed animals and puppets.
We have had several field trips. We went to get them caught up on their vaccines and I went through each detail with them to prepare. We watched a BrainPopJr. Video to help and I had them use their pretend play medical kits to act out what was going to happen. We had to go two weeks in a row because we wanted to split up the shots. We went to get ice cream and to see the river and the boats downtown.
We have spent several days at the beach – spending as much time with Grammy as possible before we leave. I have continued to prepare them for the move, and currently they are very excited to be leaving soon. We will see how it goes when the time actually comes. Right now, they are spending time on ZacBrowser. It has a ton of resources, activities, movies, just all kinds of stuff.
We have been reading many books about the body, and health. They got very interested because they wanted to know what vaccines were for. We spent time on vaccines, explaining them and why they are important.
This is all I can write at the moment because I am so frustrated and I need pictures to help me remember all that we have done. However, not being able to upload them has derailed me so I will take a break and try later.
We did have a great day at the beach today with Grammy. Daniel drank out of a spout bottle for the first time ever today! He has only used straws since I got him off the bottle. Huge for him! He also ate a fish. Yes, he told me when he got to the car that he ate one of the little fish that were in the ocean. He gave details of chewing it and said that it tasted like sand. Yikes! I am rather impressed being he refuses to eat meat, and has an incredibly limited diet. He has serious sensory issues with his mouth. Textures and tastes are a huge problem for him. The way I see it this was a big accomplishment for him… I wish he would eat things at home though instead of poor little fish in the ocean.
