We spent some time yesterday on schoolwork. Since it was President's Day, we had a short discussion on presidents and what they do. We also talked about our current president and the first president. Then we did a classification lesson on mammals and reptiles. She had a couple of worksheets on ordinal numbers. Then for the part she enjoyed the most, I used her new dry erase boards to write our a series of 2 and 3 letter words. She read them all to me! We have actually done this twice now and it works really well. We are concentrating on the worrds that end in -an, -am, -at, and -it. She also did one page from her new Kumon Pasting book. We reviewed the 8th commandment and the state of Georgia.
After a couple of months, I am starting to feel more confident about the process. Between reading the blogs and browsing the internet, I have lots of ideas for new things to do. I am also finding some fun ideas for E. We used a heart page I found online one day and he sorted his memory cards by color. I spent time teaching A things at this age but it is harder to find ways to work with him! He is a smart boy though and he seems to excel in math and numbers.
Our children are also getting to experience some amazing things. They are seeing friends of ours follow the Lord in extrodinary ways! They are excited to tell everyone that their Daddy is going on a missions trip to Uganda. They are really seeing faith lived out, not just talked about. We are so thankful for this place that God has us, for the church family he has drawn us into, and for the blessings we have received!
