“Mom! She’s almost as tall as me!”

Self Portraits

Today, We began with our first lesson from the Alpha & Omega Grade 1 history curriculum. Pretty much at this level it’s all about how special every one is. Really it’s more “social studies” then “History” but whatever. History was blocking me up, and I like A&O’s Biblical driven curriculum. Anyway, we talked about how we are all special and God loves everyone. Then we made life sized self portraits, which I think qualifies as art also. *S*

Then thePinkDiva learned about equal while GeekBoy actually sat and did a few Math worksheets – I know! Bizarre! Someone check to see if the world is still spinning. *S* GeekBoy and I actually discussed some addition strategies when adding the number 9. And I illustrated to him why he has to learn Addition before he can learn multiplication.

We also read some books before bed time.
