McD's Break

Today the kids were just wild so we decided to take a break and "put a smile on". We called Deanna and invited her and her boys along the way. The kids had a blast running around, climbing, making friends. Danya made an instant buddy, a girl her age named Amanda. Kevin, on the other hand, pushed someone down and took their ball.
It was a much needed break. Afterwords I was able to put the three little ones down and get a good chunk of homeschooling done with the girls. We're currently reading about the childhood of George Washington and studying different biomes. I'm thinking about making a trivia game to reinforce what they've learned about the different areas such as, grasslands, rainforests, deserts, and mountains. Today w played a game called "Popcorn." The way it works is one person starts reading. After at least to sentences the yell "popcorn!" and the next person has to take up where they left off even if it's mid-sentence. It helps keep the kids paying attention.
