today was our first official stay home all day-day and it was amazing. we got so much school work done and made tea twice!! for our crafting afternoon we dipped leaves into beeswax and made some beeswax mustaches for some Halloween decorations this year. in the past two or three weeks we have been focusing more on school work (if i wasn't too tired) and in just that short period of time we welcomed a new reader to the household!! it has seriously blown my mind watching him struggle, give up, come back, try again and like that figure it out!! he is so super proud (and so am i) and loves to read to his brothers (in the car when they can't run away from him). it is pretty sweet. he is also loving working with numbers using the math gnomes story (which i swore i wasn't going to do...). we are using the oak meadow first grade (handed down to me) and the earthschooling first grade. i love both of them for different reasons. and now i truly understand how wonderful homeschooling can be. nahum really looks forward to school each day which is such a change from just a month ago. yahoo!
