Homeschool: Our week, in pictures

It's been quite a mish-mash week, as we were trying to get our engines chugging again after our time away in Malaysia. I'm finding it hard to try new activities, since my bad back is bothering me, but I'm hoping next week will be better. So here's how the past week looked like:

Lots of play, as usual. Here are the boys fiddling with blocks.
Most days they get up to their own imaginary play with random things!

We're learning skip-counting for Math, and Junior J couldn't get it.
So we used dino counters, and lined them up in pairs. That helped.

The boys used plus-plus pieces to make a birthday cake (affiliate link).

After singing a birthday song and blowing out the "candles", Lil J cut up the cake for everyone to eat!

I left a sensory bin out in the nature corner with a desert theme.
Lil J spends most of his time ignoring all the figures, and concentrates on planting the cactus!
The bin is filled with lentils and beans.

A rare moment where all three are "reading".
These days Lil J likes flipping through books, while Baby J loves destroying them.

We read a little about the animals in Galapagos. My fav are the blue-footed boobies.
Lil J loves the lava crabs.

Junior J is fascinated by vampire bats. He learnt about them while watching The Magic School Bus.
So he drew this vampire bat, and went around wearing his "mask", declaring "I WANT TO SUCK YOUR BLOOD!".
He tries to be scary, so I stifle my laughter and try to look appropriately scared.

Yup, all in a week's work. Here's to a blessed weekend!
