You Know it's a Peculiar Day When.....

...a man with a BIG badge shows up on your doorstep and asks to speak with Josiah or Jamin G. I was trying to remember WHERE I'd put the HSLDA phone number, because this guy sure looked official and I wasn't sure I wanted him in my house....but then I realized Josiah graduated 2 years ago so it couldn't be HSLDA.

It turns out a friend of theirs is applying for a very secret Intel clearance...in fact he's a student at the base. Shew.

We are slogging away on our studies of Colonial America.

We got everything out to work on our Japan book....

We got side-tracked by lunch.

Then Speech. Nolan took a test and they said he is making all the sounds correctly except "ar" in the ending position. I have an ARD meeting tomorrow and expect we'll agree to dismiss him from the program.

By the time I got home the kids really didn't want to do more school.

Arielle was working on a Princess lapbook.

I printed out stuff for Stacia to make an Easter lapbook. I'll try to post resources later.

Stacia and I made a Moving Book.

The inspection on base began today. Prayers are welcome...for the base to shine as it is a GOOD base and they've worked very hard to portray their strengths.

Mike isn't home yet - but he said he'd be home early.....so....I think I'll go ahead and eat. ::snort::

Can you tell me about lapbooks? What is their purpose and how do you make them? Any good links about them? I homeschool a 5 yr old and a 3 yr old, and we do short (6 lesson) unit studies, so I think these could easily work their way into our studies. :)
