Just this past Friday, Julia and I did over 10 pages in her Letter tracing workbook and Math workbook while Mark took an early nap (he had a hand stuck in the door issue and was worn out from the morning's events, poor guy, and he did lose a finger nail which was very painful, but as of today it is beginning to harden and heal, praise God). Julia and I when we do our workbook writing pages or counting (adding) pages we have a blast. Julia is known to keep going, "More! Another one!" even when I feel we've done enough she is ready to do more, so we do! It's days like this that I take advantage of so the other days that we have Library or Gymnastics I don't worry about "missing" some school time. It all evens out.
We are getting lots of Flat Stanley's back! (Can't wait to mail out a whole new batch in the New Year, this will be a few months long project because it is just so much fun!) This weekend we got letters back from Ashland, Oregon and Staten Island, New York!
In the New Year Flat Stanley is going to travel to Maryland, California, Louisiana, Tennessee, New Mexico, and Indiana!!!
I'm thankful for each and every minute, even the days that are more difficult or harder to plan, because it has made me a stronger, better teacher, and a better mom, although I know I have lots, lots, more to learn.
