Homeschool Buddies

Betsy agreed to start a weekly homeschooling get together for our girls. We'll trade off Thursdays planning crafts, games, and activities for our four girls. The first week was mine, so we had music time where we learned some of the color songs, spelling each of the colors. Courtney really liked it! Betsy says that Courtney went around the whole rest of the day singing, "R..E..D red, I can spell red!"

I got the CD by swapping services with Danya's former pre-K teacher, Mrs. Lenaburg. I helped her out with a scrapbook she's making, and she burned me a copy of the CD and a book to go with it.

Then the girls made paper bag puppets with foam animal faces. This was a messy but fun activity! None of the girls get to use glue sticks very often, so it was a special treat. They also got to spend plenty of time just running around and playing together! Next week Betsy is going to teach the girls to make sugar cookies for Valentine's day!
