Army life

I haven't got to do much school things with Caleb as I would like but it has been a very busy few weeks. We have been busy getting the house ready for the new baby and dealing with all the fun stuff for the army. We have a little over 2 days left before he leaves and I feel emotional mostly but like there is so much to be done. I guess that's just the mother in me and the worrier.

Apples

So we couldn't go to the apple orchard because it has been such a hot summer that they are not letting people come and pick. So we went to walmart and let him pick out apples and then let him help me make some applesauce. It's more like chunky applesauce but i think now I know to cook them longer and in the crock-pot. But they still tasted amazing. Its been fun this week working with caleb he has enjoyed learning about apples and the letter A.

Poster from church

Caleb didn't really want to play the apple letter matching game so we decorated a poster that the older kids made at church yesterday and gave us

The letter A: Our file cover page

 We glued on a picture of an apple to the front of our letter A file folder.

I gave him the colors yellow, green and red to color the apple in. I was so proud that he actually colored on the page and not on himself. He was so proud of his work

The letter A: Gluing Apples on the letter A

 Showing caleb how to put glue on the back of the apple pictures





Finished with the gluing and we had fun. That was his first time using glue and he actually put it on the back of the pics.

The letter A

Today we started on the letter A and It was so much fun. Caleb actually sat and did things and listened. The matching upper are lower case letters together was to much for him and he doesn't know how to use scissors but it was fun. Hoping to upload pictures soon.

Busy week

I haven't really got to work on school stuff much this week for caleb and I really need to. But my husband came home for 3 weeks before he leaves for a year so I decided that family time was more important. At least I am ready for next week and the letter A. We are going to learn about apples and got to an apple orchard. I am so excited I am even planing on trying to make applesauce with caleb with the apples we pick! We will see how it goes. Now back to planning week 3 we are going to learn about camping.

Resources

I have been so blessed finding what I need on the internet. If it wasn't for Totally Tot and Home-school Creations and 2 Teaching mommies I would never have been able to finish everything for teaching Caleb

Calendar

So i finished my calendar and I am so excited. I just need to get some more Velcro tabs because I underestimated how many I would need. I cant wait to start teaching Caleb about what it is for and how to use it. Now I am working on doing some tot packs and picking themes for each week, which is hard.

Finished my calendar

My oldest playing hide and seek with me

Craigslist

Today is my first day using a blog. I have been wanting to for awhile but never have. So here we go.

So I have all these things sitting around my house that I want to put on Craigslist, I never seem to have the time though. My goal for today is to put at least half of the things on there up to make room for this new baby.
