For our October book club,we read about DEWEY THE LIBRARY CAT. I think all of the kids really enjoyed this book--we're a group of animal lovers! We all decided that we want a cat for our library,too--ha ha just try and get that past the city council! (inside joke)

a few updates......

Over the past few weeks,Zachary has started doing studies online at TIME4Learning. It is very handy and fun. He has learned about VIKINGS and hopefully this week,we will learn a little about HALLOWEEN-not just the commercialization of it but the real history of it. Now that the temps are alot cooler,he has spent ALOT of time out on his swing. He loves to sit and swing and listen to his favorite tunes or look up new jokes to share. I don't know which is funner-the jokes or listening to him laugh and get so tickled over a joke that he can't quite get it out!

I want a Columbus Day,too!

I had the intent of using today as a catch-up/get ahead day for our homeschool studies,but the kiddo saw online that today was a holiday,and that area students were out of class. When I mentioned homework,he just about revolted stating that he wanted a Columbus Day off too! LOL We did do the basics,but he spent alot of time outside swinging and listening to his favorite music on his dad's phone.I swear my child would listen to music and swing 24hours a day if I would let him. What is your kid's favorite thing to do?
