My spring semester ended right before Mother's Day. I had 2 weeks of no school that I filled with sewing and house repair projects. If you want to see the sewing projects, visit my ETSY shop called Baby Town. I just started up with the summer semester this week. All of my classes are online, so I can stay home with the kids and only have to find babysitters when I have to go in for a test. Makes no sense to have an online class where you have to go to campus for tests...but whatever, I don't get paid the big bucks to run the school :( So far, the workload hasn't been too bad, although I had a scare with my College Algebra class' first homework assignment. But, I finally got it all figured out and am now merrily on my way to an "A" by August! (It can't hurt to put those good thoughts out into the universe, can it?:) I am also taking a history course and an english course.The english course is about folklore and doesn't start until midway through the semester. My history class has officially started,but I have yet to receive the book I ordered on MAY 15th! Getting a little bit desperate here! So I have only really done algebra this week, but I know it will get more intense as the semester progresses.
The kids get out of school TOMORROW! They are excited and bummed out at the same time. They both really like school, but they like the prospects of being able to go swimming and play all day with their friends, and have other adventures too. Super Boy just finished a school project about Neil Armstrong. The 5th grade students each get a person to research. They have to submit a paper, but the best part is the "Wax Museum". Each student dresses up as their assigned person,and then they come up with some sort of short quote they are famous for. Then each student puts a name card with their famous person's name on it, and draw a little button for students to press. Doing so will "animate" the wax statue and the students says their little phrase. It is pretty fun to watch. I took some pictures and a tiny video of Super Boy doing his. The video didn't start recording right away,so a bit of the phrase is missing,but I figured it was long enough to get the gist of it :)
Super Girl's class just had a little performance of songs about books. She was the star in "A mud puddle jumped on me". For some strange reason, I can't upload the video, so you will have to just trust me that it was cute.
Super Boy and Super Girl also participated in the school's dance performance. Each grade did a different dance and song based on the schools theme this year "Mission Possible". Super Girl's class did a cute dance to the song "Inspector Gadget" and Super Boy's class did "Squirrels in my pants". I'm thinking the "Squirrels in my pants" song is a stretch, but it is from Phineas and Ferb who often act like secret agents or spies...or maybe they just wanted to be silly! Anyway, here are the pictures of them in their outfits because, once again, I can''t upload the videos for some strange reason! UGH!!!
Well, that's going to be all for now.I will try to be better about posting more regularly, but I am not making any promises! Until next time...XOXO
