And we are off...

to a rocky start. The girls worked on math, social studies, writing, and the dinosaur unit study today. We brought out the kitchen timer so we could have each class timed and would know when to move on to the next subject. Than we used it to tell us when lunch was over and it was time to get started again. We had some issues with trying to settle down and actually listen but I guess that's kind of to be expected the first day.

Arianna worked on three of the portfolio items for online school than worked on penmanship While Kaitlyn started coloring her part of the dinosaur mural that will go up on the wall and than reviewed patterns for math.  After Lunch they both started with penmanship, than Kaitlyn worked with reading eggs while I worked with Arianna on Math.

For Lunch the girls decided on an old favorite...Hotdogs, fruit cocktail and kidney beans which looks and tastes much better than it sounds...


After dinner the girls had another swim lesson and got signed up for their next couple of sessions through the middle of November. They were the only one in their class during this session and did some fun things. After the lesson they got to go back into the deep pool and Kaitlyn actually got to touch the bottom of the pool! Arianna almost made it but ran out of breath. Maybe Saturday she'll be able to get it! They did a great job at their lesson and as a reward got to sit in the hot tub for a few minutes before heading into the locker rooms. On schedule for next week is their last two swim lessons for this session, and they want to start getting in their walk/jogs 3x a week as well.
