K learned how to play chess from her Dad, and now K is teaching me. She beat me again this week! She thinks that is pretty cool.
This week, I introduced my children to School House Rock. They listened to the adverb song. You can find many of their videos over at youtube. They actually liked it more than it appears in this picture. They wanted to listen to several other School House Rock songs.
This picture makes me want to cry, cry, cry!!!!! I am so proud of this little man! He is already reading his second chapter book this school year! Something in his brain just clicked and he is reading so well! I am thankful for the Lord's guidance in training and teaching this little man. He requires a lot of love, patience, grace, and one-on-one instruction, and I am beginning to see the fruits of our labor. Again, I give all the praise and glory to the Lord.
I finally remembered to take my camera to K's piano lesson this week and snapped a shot of her. She loves her piano teacher and enjoys here time there each week! K is beginning to work on Christmas music for her holiday recital.
L (the 5-year-old) is continuing her reading, writing, and math lessons. She is so funny, and is really catching on with her reading. When she reads a word correctly she gives me a high five, wiggles her little fingers, and says, "Sparkles" in her sweet, high-pitched little voice. She also wrote a poem this week I would like to share with you. She told me to only write down what she says, and I did.
Weeds are pretty
It's God's creation
Some weeds are blue like the sky
Some weeds are white like the clouds
Some weeds are yellow like the sun
Some weeds are red like the sunset
Some weeds are green like the grass
When she was done she said, "This is prettiness."
