The kids' online classes ended early in May and each week another of our outside activities seems to come to its end of term as well. It has been very difficult to keep them interested in doing school work. There was still some Math lessons to make it through and Molly always needs more work on reading and writing. But mostly the kids have been bored.
I on the other had have other ideas. I am trying really hard to keep them to just one hour a day and only after the few school assignments and some chores get done.
Molly has spent more time outdoors. The weather hasn't been too warm yet so she goes out and moves rocks and sticks around quite a bit. Here is her garden Dalek that she created on day.
I have tried to introduce my kids to some good books they may enjoy.
We are listened to Tom Sawyer and started Huckleberry Finn but gave up on Huck for a bit. The kids started to think it was not nearly as fun as Tom Sawyer.
The boys were introduced to Michael Vey and have been quickly making their way through the whole series. I have only read the first two books but they are on the third and forth now. They fight over the copy we got from the library. I guess we need to somehow get two copies of them but Ian has been reading them almost all in one sitting so Henry is able to get the book rather quickly.
