We learned the number six. (Romping Roaring Numbers – 6.)
I also started doing Afrikaans with Angie. (Half the family is Afrikaans; it’s about time she started learning to speak it, right?) I’ve been using the workbooks from the Department of Education’s website, and teaching her and Emmy the days of the week and months of the year. They have a lot of fun trying to pronounce the words properly – especially the ‘g’ at the end of the days of the week.
Angie is actually really excited about Afrikaans, and keeps asking me what random words are in Afrikaans. Then she tries to use them in a sentence, making up her own Afrikaans-sounding words as she goes along. It’s turning out to be a lot more fun than I expected it to be.
We started looking at Exodus with Bible Road Trip. We read about Moses, the plagues and how the Israelites crossed the Red Sea.
I’ve started planning next year’s curriculum already, and even ordered a few things. I know that after Peanut arrives my brain is not going to be functioning at full capacity for a while, so I need to have everything in order before I go into zombie-mode.
We’re almost at the end of Learning the Alphabet and Reading the Alphabet, so when we’re done with that we’ll take a break for Peanut’s arrival – or, rather, do a crash course in Baby 101! – and continue with Bible Road Trip and some very light schooling while we adjust to a new routine.
I’m a little bit nervous about homeschooling with a newborn, but I think we’ll manage just fine. (Pray for me, please.)
