Update on No Work Sheet Wednesday..

 I thought I might update you on how our "No WORK sheet Wednesday" were going. I am happy to report that I think I came up with a real winner!! Here are a few things we have been up to on Wednesday's. Fort the the bedrooms.....followed by......

 Secret HIDE OUT boys all love using this is a good time for us to put them to some good use!! Plus they get some alone time...Yesterday Zach and Caleb made a great "tent" using the bunk beds in their room and then Julia, Zach, Caleb, and myself all climbed in and listened to Caleb read us a chapter book. It was so FUN!!!

 Lance decided the other day that this week he would "teach" an art class right after breakfast. So he put up his sheet of paper and instructed us on how to draw a pumpkin...stem and all. Then after we all had finished that one he taught us how the step-by-step method for drawing a blue bird.....He was so proud that he got everyone's attention and of course he loves to "instruct others" (smile).

 Here is his captive audience...minus me for a second while I grabbed a picture...but I sat in on the learning as well!

 Here is a sample of our marvelous art work..per Lance's instructions....We all enjoyed it and said Lance will have to lead us again sometime in the near future.

So there are just a few things we are doing on Wednesday to keep FUN in our school days.....Here is a really fun website that was given to me (THANKS Harmony!). I thought you might like to check it out.....E-Learning for kids

That looks like fun. I loved doing that as a kid (the forts), but I remember my mom didn't love it so much. I think I will want to spend time doing that sort of thing with my kids. :)
