What we've been up to...

Since Maggie has joined our family I've been a little off my game.  I had all these great plans for kindergarten - cool science projects and experiments lined up, music lessons, art plans, you name it - but this third child has been a game changer for me.  This last month has been so much better than the previous months, as Maggie cries way less now and is happy to be in her swing a bit more.  Needless to say, I've had to reevaluate my school plans and simplify a bit.  William is doing great with his phonics and reading skills, I've switched our math curriculum to Singapore math (which I love!), and we are taking Story of the World  (history) waaay slower than I had originally planned.  We are doing these fun unit studies for science and currently we are learning about weather.

The kids are just sponges when it comes to memorizing!  They memorize large chunks of scripture in a matter of a few days.  I have to admit that memorizing doesn't come easy to me, but I figure if they can do it so can I. 

Here is Abby reciting our 2012 homeschool theme verses.  Keep in mind she's barely three years old!

And here is William reciting another excellent verse kids everyone should know. 

Well, that will have to do for now. 

You're welcome, Jared.
