We took our PE outside for our run on the snow.
It was such a beautiful day and fun to get out and run on the snow. The kiddos had fun and did great not slipping because they also wore their trail shoes. I firmly believe that you don’t need to spend a lot to get yourself or your kids out hiking. Once we started hiking further and on more technical trails we invested in hiking shoes for Cannon then pass them down to Emerald. Somehow we skipped the next size Emmy needs for Cannon (also these shoes have been worn down from lots of use so we might be buying new for her from now on anyway). We have really liked the Merrell shoes for the kids.
These were on sale for both kids and I have never seen them on sale before! We got the Merrell Kid’s Trail Chaser Hiking Sneaker for Emerald and the Merrell ALTALIGHT Low Hiking Shoes for Cannon.
I think we should get extra points for our run because it felt a little like running in sand. It was cold but so nice to be running outside with my little besties.
We dove into second semester of hybrid school for the kids and I was a bit worried. I thought we might have a really hard time adjusting back and that Cannon would have forgotten a lot. It felt like we were on break for a very long time. I had no need to worry, both kids did amazing and were happy to be back doing school work!
We aren’t changing any of our curriculum that we started in August, we are happy with what we are doing so far.
Cannon finished his Alpha level math curriculum in November so we are starting the Beta level now, since this is second grade level math I don’t think we will finish Beta quite as quickly as Alpha. Also I am planning on getting in Kinder level math for Emmy as she seems ready. If we are still working on these math levels at the end of the year we might work on them over the summer and into next school year.
We are right on track and liking our reading and writing curriculum and I am happy with that.
Also loving doing our own unit studies and digging into topics we find interesting. We are starting a polar animal unit now.
Our plan is to have Emmy and Cannon both do hybrid school next year. They both want to and I am enjoying it so we will continue for now.
