Lu is going through a crepe craze, and we're hoping it lasts :)
I remember seeing pictures of children cooking and baking in homeschool blogs, when we first started homeschooling. At the time, I couldn't imagine Lu being that independent in the kitchen. Homeschooled kids looked so cool, interesting, and skilled.
Yesterday, one of Cha's clients came over when Lu was making crepes, and Lu very politely offered him one. The man said to Cha: Well, isn't that the life! and Cha replied: Yup! It's definitely one of the benefits of homeschooling.
We've been having a great time inventing new combinations to try in our crepes. One of my favorites is orange marmalade, fresh strawberries, and macadamia butter.
Lu usually goes for the Nutella.
On a more academic note: Lu has finished reading about Ancient Mesopotamia, which means we are officially done with History for the year. Although, there are still a few documentaries on Egypt we might watch with lunch.
After reading, a little quiz on what he learned.
He also worked on a diagram of the nose
for his studies on the 5 Senses.
We've been taking daily walks in the late afternoon. It's been great. We really needed to work on Lu's walking - foot placement, posture, resistance, stride, pace... He had a hard time doing the first 30-minute walks we did (we go fast), but now he's walking hard for an hour with no trouble.
