Favorites, Routine and Focus

We are starting to fall in a good rhythm with our routine. We start school when daddy leaves for work . That time varies daily, which gives them more play and wake up before we start some days than others. The earlier start days, we build in P.E. and more body breaks. 

Munchkin basics. His favorites are math, science and art. (6 years, 9 months) Electives include Spanish and piano. Our names of Jesus study is just starting for bible. He's finding his motivation and focus. When he sets his mind to learning, he's very impressive to watch. 

Doodlebug's (5 years, 2 months) kinder unit study is so fun. His interest in sitting and doing activities is really taking shape. He really enjoys writing and with his high function spectrum issues, we are working on critical thinking, flexibility and adaptability to change. He's really enjoying the simplicity of this approach. The letter and object of creation provides the central point for bible, science, history, math, handwriting, phonics and literature. 

Lionheart (2 years, 4 months) blows me away with how quickly he picks up and wants to join in on big brother's work ( modified for his age). He can name 90% of the letters, numbers 1-10, basic 5 shapes and 3 colors. He likes to color, loves anything set to music and sings along and we are working on listening while mommy reads. L and brothers gather that week's color from their toys around the house. I'll have to get a video of it next week, they are super cute working together.

Rough draft #2 of organizing our week so we cover everything:
