Homeschooling and Virtual Races

We aim to do an Art lesson on Thursdays. This week (April 2nd) it was on Gustav Klimt. The kids art teacher at school had made a video talking about him and we got our Art History book out to read about him. Then the kids made photos of food inspired by Klimt - meaning I encouraged them to use shapes to make their pictures, lol. 

Friday we finished up the calendar the girls have to work on. Their teachers sent these out, I like them better than what the district made, which we didn't end up doing the first week. This calendar is a lot like the homework we did back at Kenwood in Minneapolis so it feels familiar. We are evening using their old homework journals from the start of the year. Will be fun to fill those out and nice to have all their work in one place. 

Emma wanted eggs for breakfast so I taught her how to make eggs. This is the more valuable learning in my opinion :-) 

Friday we sent photos to their teachers showing we completed the calendar. 

Enjoying fixate cookies and homemade ice cream as ice cream sandwiches: 

I'm missing that we can't do any of the races we had planned to. Isaac was signed up for a race in April with his running club at school. It's been postponed til June hopefully it can still happen. But I did find these virtual races. I signed up for them and they will send u the metal we just do the race on our own and send in our time. I knew Isaac would LOVE the captain underpants metal and will motivate him to keep practicing for the race. I am doing a mom run with a bunch of friends we have about 11 in the group so far, 5 committed to running it with me on May 9th. 


Saturday made a trip back to Ace to pick up the rest of the fence for the garden. They had their floor marked for the 6 feet social distancing.
