Can you believe we were supposed to get snow last night?!?!?! I am so thankful we didn’t, but it sure did get cold! After enjoying all that time outside and not needing jackets, it has been rough trying to tell the little ones they 1need to put them on again.
We pulled out our small trampoline for some energy draining today. The kids thought it was the best thing in the world, considering it has been about a year since they went on it. I like being able to pull something like that out and let it be “new” again. I had to tell J that since we weren’t outside running around, riding bike and skateboarding, we have to do regular gym class again.
It has been a little easier for everyone to focus on doing their school work now that there isn’t the temptation to want to go outside. J is doing awesome on his Social Studies, I don’t have to ask him to do that, I have to ask him to slow down. I love that he is so interested in the history of the United States right now and is talking about the things he learns throughout the day. Now if only I could get him that interested in his math. He is doing good in that too, especially since he started doing the 6th grade math they said he couldn’t do at Public School. He gets so happy when he does good and I love seeing him so happy over his accomplishment!!
RayRay has been working on some basic Kindergarten lessons, and breezing through them!! Now, if I could just get him to sit down long enough to practice writing!! I plan to enroll him in Kindergarten home school in the fall. As fun as it would be to see what he does at public school, I know that he will thrive better in an environment that suites him, just like his big brother! Both of these boys are so full of energy and I love to see them be able to move around as they need to and not get into trouble because they are not sitting still as a stick in a classroom that is full of distractions.
Little Miss is her same princess self! She has been watching during RayRay’s lessons and loves to “count” and “read”. She will count: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10…I think it is adorable and as much as I want to just love her up while she is doing that, we end up counting together after she starts. We have been checking out some easy reader books from the library and when RayRay doesn’t want to read his sight words, she will read them after I say them.
I hope the weather warms up again, and that you all have a great day!! God bless!!!
