That doesn’t happen every Friday-just today and last week. We will be schooling on Sunday because I’m pretty sure at least one our days next week is going to be busy. I try to remain proactive when I know we’re going to be busy.
I got a great deal on some Math-u-See from a new homeschooling group I joined yesterday. We are picking our items up on Tuesday. It’s curriculum for Mayah and David. (And maybe even Alexander’s next year’s stuff) I’m so excited and thankful the Lord provided exactly what we still needed for more than a fraction of the cost.
I got to enjoy some real smiles from Miss Mayah again this morning at the breakfast table. While she can do rather big girl things, my girl is clearly a baby. She enjoys baby activities and loves to be cuddled and talked to and treated like one. The smiles were so beautiful and real I tried getting my camera out and I kept getting the fake smiles. Hopefully I get a real one on camera soon, I can’t wait to share it!!
Presently Mayah, Gage and I are watching signing time (http://www.signingtime.com/) Leah’s Farm. Mayah didn’t understand yesterday when we started watching it together why the people were signing. She understood we signed (the words we knew) but didn’t understand the concept of learning new signs. Now she is getting it. She process her thoughts much better with the help of signs as opposed to just trying to remember the words. Remembering words (especially more than 1 syllable) is extremely hard for our girl. We are trying the best we can to learn the best ways to reach her and help her grow. We are looking forward to being able to buy the entire signing time set eventually. We got this one from our local library. We wanted to see how she did before we made that investment.
Even though we are not schooling tomorrow-Mayah is DEFINITELY going to be reviewing her shapes with her puzzle as well as spending time with time4learning. David even asked today if he could do some work on it. I simply didn’t have the time in between errands. However that’s good news he wanted to learn;)
As for our trip, not sure if it’s going to happening. Hannah’s parents didn’t agree to her going to our first destination and it remains to be seen if she can go anywhere with us. Still hoping at best she is able to come and spend some time with us next week.
I’m also having a pampered chef party next Friday!
if you can’t come or don’t live close by, PLEASE order from this site: http://www.pamperedchef.biz/cookingwlisa?page=home

And since we do a LOT of cooking from scratch in this house, supplies are always needed. So please help my girlie out, wouldya? kthanks!
