I have been terrible about keeping up with this blog....no idea why?!?! HA! Emma is a big 11 weeks old now-zooooom! So fast. This past week she moved out of our room and into hers. She is still sleeping in the swing for half the night, but in her own room. David and I seem to be sleeping better and I really think it is best for her to start getting used to her own space. The bassinet is still in our room if needed and of course there is always our bed!
We are about to embark on another home school year. We plan to start tomorrow. I am learning that I do not need a "start" time right now as each and every day looks different. I purchased a curriculum for Mayah this year-Kindergarten! Yes, she is quite ready even though the public school system would have her wait a year. She has a desire to learn and after looking through the beginning of the curriculum I think she is beyond ready. It starts with letter recognition and she is doing letter sounds and I think ready for blends. We are going to take it slow only because I am managing 2 kids with school and 2 kids not...and breastfeeding. My only expectations for the school day is to make it through the day with joy and grace.
Chiara is starting 2nd grade curriculum with BJU. She can and likes to work very independently and BJU allows her to do so. I can't take any credit for the amazing things Leah Jo knows! She can count to 10, recognize numbers 1 through 10 and even recognizes at least 20 letters. WOW! Thank you Preschool Prep Company DVDs!!!
I have been using almost all of my "free" (hahahahaha) time preparing for the school year beginning of our home school support group. David and I are Directors this year and it is our heart's desire to see the group grow....and it is already! I can't wait to see what happens this year for Mi CASA!
I am sure there are so many things I could write on here....so many little details that I am neglecting. However, I am choosing to just be in the moment and enjoy what comes each day.
