Swimming for us has been a constant. If we have not been doing lessons then we have just been playing. So our kids are pretty keen on the water.  So this term they jumped up a level in their swimming...then we went on holiday and of course it was like an intense week long swimming fest! I don't think our kids got out of the water for the whole week...well to eat and sleep but not much they are like little eels.
My only issue is that if DS is going to move up another level in swimming he needs his ears on...he's only 4 and it would not be fair if he's with much older kids who can listen.
So I'll have to do some creative teaching so he can still feel like he's advancing but not getting into trouble because he's not listening.

Enjoying web sites

I've been looking for ways to get my two outside even more as they seem to love it.
Some days I work through the lessons in Kindergarten Oak Meadow for DS but he seems way past most of it but for the writing part. He understands the sounds and the letter and the numbers far better than I imagined he did.

I also listened in on a conversation between my two...DD pulled apart a flower showing it to DS explaining how bees put their proboscis down into the nectar and how the pollen is dabbed onto the bee.
I have not done anything in this learning so I can't take any credit...

BUT it has made me realize we need to spend more time...yes more time outside and we spend a lot already. We have the environment so I need to make use of it.

Now to get this book as I think its what I've been wanting...the reason for Maths...not just numbers on a page.
