This week is ending our 2nd quarter in Seton 3rd grade.  He is doing very well and seems to be speeding through phonics, vocab and spelling. I plan to supplement soon and will probably do more supplementing this summer. I didn’t want to over do our first year, but I also want him to be challenged. Math, he is doing great also. He is still a little slow with his multiplication facts but understands double digit multiplying and is eager to start that soon. I will still keep him practicing the single digits until he is much faster. In History, we are learning about the Carroll’s and how the brothers played such a big role in our Catholic History and the influence they had on  the Declaration of Independence and our American History in general.  This will be great to lay a foundation and do another unit this summer during July 4th celebrations.  Science is coming along fine as far as reading and discussions go, but I am still eager to find a supplemental for more workbook type activities.  Religion is always wonderful, he has been given a gift of depth and understanding in that department.  This week he has memorized the Nicene Creed and has been studying the steps for the Stations of the Cross in more depth and detail. English is fun right now, we are comparing subjects and direct objects to football, he loves that! So the Subject (aka Romo) and the direct object (aka T.O.) have some of the same rules as footballRomo is the main player….(subject, aka quarterback) and T.O. (direct object, aka reciever) who receives the action (verb). So we are diagramming now, the subject / verb / and direct object….of coarse the other players are the adjectives….hehe. This has been helpful for him and he is picking it up pretty fast.  But devastated that The Cowboys LOST!!! 

So, I am very pleased with my little builder this week!

Lil monster has been doing great with shapes and colors and has made 3 poopies in the potties!  woo-hoo!!!   Now I just hope she can get the difference between poop and pooter, cause I am wearing out the carpet with a crazy number of trips to the potty!

Thank you Lord for my wonderful family!
