Random Five on Friday

1.  We started back to school this week.  {First Day Pictures}  I hadn't initially planned to take the summer off, but then we moved back home and it just happened.  So right now we're easing back into things.  Elliott is doing the basics, and we're doing a mini-unit on the ocean since we're taking a trip to the beach soon.  Once we come home from our trip, we'll start AO Year 1.

2.  I forgot to share about Eleanor's doctor's appointment last week.  It went well, and she went from 12 lbs 8 oz at 5 1/2 months (8th percentile) to 14 lbs 4 oz (between 15-20th percentile) at 6 1/2 months.  My little munckin' is starting to pack on the pounds.  She hates tummy time, but she is starting to scoot around on her bottom.

3.  I found these free Lego Man Coloring Pages and my boys have loved coloring their own Lego characters.  They make for a great break between subjects during schoolwork.

4.  In the past, Elliott has complained that he has to do boring stuff (reading practice and math) and Emory gets to do fun things for school.  Emory usually plays with math manipulatives or blocks nearby during school.  Today Elliott asked if he could do play-doh for school, since Emory's playdough set was out.  Well yes son, you can!  I remembered seeing this Sight Word Activity on Pinterest, and decided to follow the rabbit trail (originally from First Grade Fever) to print out a few sight words for him.  This was a win-win for us.  He got to "play" and I still had him reviewing something!

5.  Emory just recently turned 4 years old!  He moves up from nursery to Jr. Church, and from nursery to PreK at co-op.  I can't believe it.  We're going to have some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fun this weekend!  I did a birthday interview with him, I will have to share it later!
