This was my final week with the kids. We had a blast and learned a ton, despite not finishing Farmer Boy.
Bo requested an ocean box for his final one of the summer. The base is water and water beads. I added a Coral Reef Toob, boats, and shells.
Amelia also got an ocean box. The base is water then I added sea creatures, boats and a mermaid.
Tuesday we did bags and boxes as usual.
We also did some obstacle courses.
Then we went to the park where we made fairy/elf houses in the roots.
Mom came home early, so on Wednesday we finished up our chapter and activity from the day before. We made feather pens.
Then bags and boxes as usual.
We read the chapter about Almanzo splattering black stove polish on his mother's wall paper. We went outside and splattered some black paint on big paper. One of us decided to paint her entire arm black too, but that wasn't actually part of the plan.
After a trip to the park, Bo and I talked about the phases of the moon. Using a cheat sheet from his folder we made the phases with Oreos.
He finished up 2 pages of his folder.
We left the other 2 blank because we didn't get that far in our book.
Thursday was my final day with the kids. So we partied. Well, Bo had school then we partied. I painted Amelia's pig tails pink and her finger nails.
We went to Wildcat, her request.
After getting Bo it was food fight time. We had flour balls (flour in panty hose), pudding, and water balloons for after. Then it was a shaving cream slip 'n' slide and sprinkler.
Then some pool time. Bo had the GoPro, can you tell?
We had a wonderful summer together, but now it's back to school.
