Learning Log Week of 5/31 - 6/6/09
Sunday: We drove to Los Rios Rancho in Oak Glen to see the traveling "Journey of a Pioneer Family" exhibit on loan from Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum. I walked through with T-Guy and we both enjoyed it. Outside he had a chance to churn butter, use a feather quill pen, play with period toys, and more. J-Baby tried his hand at washing clothes on a wash board and putting them through a ringer.
Monday: We had a quiet day, but the boys did practice their penmanship. The also played several games, including Star Wars Monopoly. There was KEVA plank play, basketball, and practicing baseball with Papa.
Tuesday: More penmanship practice. Mountain biking for T-Guy (J-Baby is nursing a back injury). Basketball. Walked.
Wednesday: Silent reading. Practiced baseball skills with Papa. Nice long evening walk with the dogs.
Thursday: Story of the World 3. We went to the library and comic book store; both boys have new reading material. Watching game 1 of the NBA finals was an opportunity to go over basketball strategy and rules as well as cheer on the Lakers! Walked.
Friday: The boys practiced throwing and catching a baseball. We walked 3 miles (to and from the park). Discussed money and value with J-Baby before allowing him to place an order for a toy he wants.
Saturday: T-Guy and Papa worked on new guitar chords as well as singing on pitch. More Story of the World 3. We attended a train convention. Math practice on a Didj (geometry).
