I can't say that this book was my favorite. While everyone else is working hard to ensure that there will be food for the winter, Frederick is not helping. Bee pointed out that he should be helping too.
This week we learned in phonics about making a word possessive, the "th" consonant blend, and all about the exclamation point. I believe Bee enjoyed the exclamation point, because she got to be dramatic. In math we learned about addition this week.
We shortened our week due to a last minute trip we decided to take with my Mother in law. It was a long car trip but well worth it. Next week's theme ... All Saints Day.

Welcome to The Week of Columbus. We were unable to locate the recommended reading, Columbus written by Ingri & Edgar Parin D'Aulaires, so we made do with parts of three other books. I am overall unsure if Bee really understood all of it, but she seemed to enjoy the stories. For Social Studies and Craft we printed off a World map, pieced it together, colored it, and later labeled the continents, oceans.
I must say the week was a bit stressful at times. I don't know what has gotten into Bee this week, but she was a handful on more then one day. Tune in next week for ......The Week of the Mouse.

We are at the point in our pregnancy that we don't know which sex the baby is, so we are unsure of what to call the baby. We do have both a boy and girl's name picked out, but we are going to keep that a secret for now. I found this picture and thought Baby Bumbles was perfect.
As of today we are 9 weeks and 4 days. Yesterday we had our first appointment with the perinatologist. He put me on medicine for blood pressure and I get to go back in 3 weeks to measure the length of my cervix. They believe that I may have an incompetent cervix and we may have to get a cerclage put in. They did an ultrasound and the baby looked great and had a healthy heartbeat of 176. Next week we go to our regular OB/GYN. Stay tuned for more updates.

The Week of the Ducks was a success. Bee loved her book of the week. What happens when a kind police officer makes friends with a family of ducks that has to get across town? Just read Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey and find out. Bee like counting all the ducklings on every page.
Our science for this week was to discuss the migration of bird in our area. She loved watching the birds and looking up what type of birds they were on the computer. We also discussed which ones fly south and which ones would be here all winter. She is even going to make a bird's nest as her craft. I will post pictures when it's dry. She is already looking forward to her next week of Kindergarten.
Check us out next week for........The Week of Columbus.
