what they’re learning lately
Our days are filled with lots of schooling. It’s the priority of the day and takes up most of it. I can definitely see how Brave has grown in these past couple months, her hand-eye coordination is getting better and her reading continues to improve. I’m thankful that I can be part of all that, but trust me, I am no perfectly patient teacher.
We are reading through Aesop’s Fables and True can read the stories to us! It’s so exciting. She loves reading and is always reading (or drawing). Ben’s mom tells us stories of how much Ben loved reading as a kid and I imagine True is pretty much Ben reincarnate. She really is. I, on the other hand, hated reading as a kid. I remember that when I had to turn in book reports, I would only read the first and last page of each chapter and then base my book report off of that. I can’t believe I was so lazy! My love for reading didn’t happen until middle school when I picked up a R.L. Stine book and fell in love with scary stories. After that I moved on to the Christy Miller Series and there was no stopping my love for reading any longer. Reading is like watching a movie in your mind… I love it!
I hope (and pray) I am able to instill in my girls a love for learning and reading. There is so much to learn that we are just barely starting to scratch the surface of it all. Also, despite how crazy of a mom-teacher I might be, I am so glad they like learning from me!
