The older princesses had a sleep over on Thursday with the Bible Study they have attended this summer. So we had to cut short our normal Friday activities due to tiredness. Princess E has two assignments yet to hand in (Sunday morning) and will have to complete them this afternoon.

This last one, we pretty much just read the poem and looked at the pictures and talked about the fact that there was a war almost 100 years ago that included much of the world.
Princess M - PreTOGGer
Did some games from Letter of the Week. She enjoyed the size and shape sorting activities with Princess E. I printed out the A-Z Floor letters and laminated them. Princess S made a maze around the house and they hopped from letter to letter saying the letter names. I printed out the Do-A-Dot pages and she covered the circles with pom-pom magnets with Princess E and then with small circle stickers with Princess S. Yes - I am relegating preschool this year to my eldest two princesses. They do a fabulous job and they love it, and so does Princess M. I need the time with Princess L for Kindergarten, and the only way to do it is to have them attend to Princess M. When you homeschool, you just do what works. And this works for all of us for now.
