Week wrap up

We went on our lantern walk for Martinmas with our homeschool co-op.

Practicing the names and sounds of the alphabet that my first grader has learned so far:

Working through the Norse myths with my fourth grader. We only have one more week of Norse myths left!

And his music lesson and form drawing:

Monday, part 1

We were down one child today, as my teen was out of town at a concert. It was still very much a Monday, though. Here is our day in pictures. I’ll be writing a follow up post, that’s more reflective.

Copy and verse memorizing work.

Fourth grader knitting. He’s making a sweater for his little brother.

Painting from a Norse story with my fourth grader. He wanted to use paper that would fit in his main lesson book.

Painting with my first grader. I accidentally grabbed the wrong red and we leaned first hand why we need the circle colors. 😂 Carmine red doesn’t quite mix the same way with yellow. You can see my prop painting above, with a lovely golden color for the goose. But we made it work.

I had to snap a picture of my toddler. He always wants to paint with us, but what a mess still! This photo was after he’d dumped the tiny bit of rinse water I’d given him. But the pleasure is in the process and I know it’s good for him to experience painting.
