The Fuchs Academy Homeschool progress Sept. 18th-26th
Lyvi really enjoyed making her Bumble "B" one day while her brothers were napping.
I actually got the idea from one of my favorite blogs.
Daddy also made the kids some fun Balloon hats.
That really made us laugh.
This was Tom's favorite. He called him the indian chief. Lol.
On Wednesday we had friends over to play for quite a while. They are 2 and 4 months old and their parents are planning to homeschool them just like us so while the Moms talked the kids played and we all had a really nice time. It was kind of a day off from homeschooling but we were getting a good dose of "socialization" so I am still counting it. After all we all know how that concerns every non~homeschooling person under the sun right??
Wyatt colored many lovely pictures this week of balloons, ovals, Buzz Lightyear (his favorite) and the letter "B". He and his sister were allowed to use the glue to stick their letter "B" I had cut out to a blue piece of construction paper and they loved the glueing experience so much this week I am going to do another activity that involves the good old glue stick.
On Friday all three of my lovely children were headed to the Doctors for their well child visits. Mazlyn's was 2 month, Wyatt's 2 year and Alyvia's 4 year. We had put them off for a few months because we know how busy the doctors office is in July and August because of all the public school children who are required to have their immunizations within a certain amount of time so, we wait until they are all back in school because we have no requirements. I started telling our kids at the beginning of the week that Friday we had doctors appointments scheduled and there would be shots administered. We even read a book about going to the doctor and pretended to check each others heartbeats and breathing with our pretend stethoscope and we checked out each others ears too. The kids were really prepared or so I thought. We got there and Lyvi was nervous, I could tell because she wouldn't sit still. When the nurse called us back Lyvi told Tom and I that she didn't need to go and we had to coax her along. The nurse checked her height and weight and then started to put us in a room and the fire alarm started to go off. We were escorted outside by our Doctor and we got to sit in the sun and wait. Wyatt kept asking over and over again "Whats that sound Mommy?? Whats that sound??" So the trip to the Doctors office turned into a lesson on fire alarms and fire safety. We missed the fire truck and the fire men however because we were taken out the back door and they arrived and checked the building through the front. : ( Afterwards we were taken back into the office and all three of the kids were checked out and given a thumbs up. Then came the fun part..... shots. I had Wyatt go first because he is my "Champ". He was only given the flu vaccine in his leg and he didn't even flinch. He watch Diane stick him, looked at me funny and then continued to read his book. Lyvi went next and basically flipped out like a 4 year old drama queen, I don't really blame her though because she was given 5 shots so... Then it was my babys turn. Mazlyn had to get three shots and he cried as any 2 month old would. I do it because I love them though and like all the paperwork says "shots may hurt a little but illness can hurt a lot more."
