Iditarod & School Work....

We actually tackled some school work yesterday : )
We read: Akiak - A Tale From The Iditarod & Iditarod Dream - Both were great stories about the dog race which takes place up in Alaska starting today. Then we shifted back to Hitty our Above & Beyond Five In A Row book selection. We had read the chapter awhile ago and I was surprized to see that Kelly remembered most of the chapter.
Our day is still way to short and we are not getting enough things done! I have ordered that math book I mentioned "Life Of Fred - Fractions" and I also ordered "Calulations Capers" suggested in a post over at Home*School*Home blog. I am hoping to alternate days with each of these math books and see how that goes...
Would you belive I was using the "How the Earth Was Made" dvd series for our science (since Kelly had no interest in the Apologia Zoology 1 book I had gotten), She was LOVING it and learning alot. Well Netflix removed the remaining 3 disc. from my dvd list! I called them and asked and they said they may have lost the right to send them out or they have no more copies available.... I finally find something that holds Kelly's attention and is soooo educational and interesting and now we can't continue with it : ( I have looked it up at amazon and I can order the series for about $19.00 plus shipping. I really don't have the money after buying the math books to buy something else but if anyone sees the series for less please let me know.
