The Weekend is Almost Here!!

Standard

Today was gorgeous, scorching, but gorgeous none the less. We made it to the pool today and had the whole place to ourselves for over an hour.  I noticed that most people are gone right now for vacation, so we are enjoying ourselves at home and hitting all the normally crowded places.  We are on a cleaning spree right now because of K’s birthday party this weekend.  It is so hard to believe that he is going to be 6 in just a few days!!  He has grown and learned is much in such a short amount of time.

Today was day 9 in the workbooks.  The boys are really kicking butt and get right into.  They finish in less than 5 minutes now, and then they are off to the journals.  Today I asked them to write about flags.  If you had a flag what would it look like?  What would it symbolize?  Where and when would you show it?  A was a bit more into it than K and went into the reasons we use to flags.  K was more interested in drawing and designing a super cool flag.

The difficulty for me is coming up with ideas that will work for both kids at their level.  A is a more logical and analytical individual where as K is more imaginative and a real out off the box thinker.  Don’t get me wrong, they are both extremely creative, but not in the same way.  Their ages also play a factor, as I have to explain many of the topics to K because he doesn’t quite understand what I am asking, whereas other times A gets frustrated that a topic is too “baby.”  So if anyone has any good writing topics, feel free to shoot them my way. 🙂
