We are winding down for the year. We didn't do a new shape, but we did review the ones we've already learned over the course of this year with books and eye-spy.
I did get one our learning sessions on video just for posterity. It's hilarious that it was interrupted numerous times by varying things like Doodlebug waking up from his nap early crying, mommy forgetting something, hunger, random songs, Munchkin having ideas where he ran out of the room to get something and finally we decided to pick it up another time when the lawn guys arrived. It was a losing battle for his attention at that point. That's just real life in our day :-) Every day living things don't stress us out. We just finished things up another day and that's all right.
We did 22 activities, even if we'd only done the first sitting, the week would have been deemed a success. I always have more activities ready than what we can do in a week because I have been able to gather so many ideas from blogs through Pinterest. I mix it up every other week or so, since I know I wouldn't want to do the same thing monotonously for 26 weeks as we went through the alphabet. Plus, his skills have advanced, so we've added, deleted and changed activities according to his learning and maturity.
The extra time allowed us to do more for our Monthly Faith focus of Prayer. We read several of our prayer books and did a few crafts this week so I have updated that post.
