Projects/Activities Treadmill – Caleb walked on the treadmill several times this week.
Email – The novelty has worn off, but he still sends a few during the week.
Planets song – Caleb was interested in planets this week, so we found the planets song on You Tube, and he learned the names of the planets.
Planets – Caleb watched a few videos on planets on You Tube for Schools.  He also did a few Solar System worksheets to see if he remembered what he watched.
Live Mocha – Someone mentioned this free foreign language website, so I emailed Caleb about it.  He chose to start working on Spanish.  So, he completed a few lessons on the site.  There are lots of languages, and I have a feeling he’ll choose others soon.  Smile
Park Play – Micah had an Easter egg hunt and picnic at the park, so Caleb tagged along.  He was able to ride his scooter and play with another homeschool boy while we were there.
Coloring – Caleb and Micah both spent a little time coloring in some coloring books.  Micah is all focused on staying in the lines now, and he does a GREAT job.
Well, there are no pictures for this week.  Oh well…maybe next week.  Smile
