I’m pretty tired, it was another early wake up with no going back to sleep for T.Pot and I. I think his gums are in the active labor stage of things and, though his demeanor was quite lovely today, he has been biting on every.thing {and one}, fighting sleep and trying to do things like stand. Because he’s a jerkbaby. Anyway, yeah. Sleepy.
We kicked the week off with our new words: Which, Engrossed, Engage. 
Then we discussed upcoming events and special days; Macky’s midnight snack night, Uncle Cousin Buddy Boy’s birthday, Impromtu-ish birthday party and Halloween {because we’re counting down to that every day now}. 
Somehow that discussion turned into a a talk about halitosis, which reminded me that we needed to make morning responsibility cards. The boys know that they are responsible for their personal hygiene in the morning, {it has been the same process since they were born} but they often don’t and then we end up having to remind them, or they use it as an excuse to evade something later.
So I tossed that into the lesson plan, we re-covered why personal hygiene is essential and then taped the envelopes containing their set of cards to their bedroom doors.  
We took a snack break, started on our newest Halloween project - ghost hangies - and then did reading activities, including about an hour of Reading Kingdom for Caesar. I have to finish reading the accompanying guide so that I can begin working with Severus and Mercutio on the new reading program. 
Tomorrow it’s mostly Core {*cries*} math, more reading, I’m planning for a huge science day on Wednesday because, as of now, Severus is supposed to be out with MIL and her partner taking his own science journey.

Mercutio gets started on his morning cards.
WOTW wall.
That’s ME! Mercutio drew me saying “Good morning!” on one of his cards. I’m NEVER that perky in the AM.
Severus is sparkling up his ghost.
Glitter close up.
Caesar was meticulous about his glue dot placing, making sure it created his perfect creepy effect.
Caesar and Reading Kingdom.
Our ghost hangies.
Random question: Are any homeschoolers teaching cursive?
