We are spending lots of time together and we went and picked up some homework today, so productivity is still happening here.
In the meantime, we have been homeschooling along. I say homeschooling, but is it really homeschooling if they go to school during the day, too? What would you call it? Supplementing their education? How many times can I write "homeschooling" in one paragraph?
We have read these books lately:
|Busy Timmy by Kathryn Jackson|
The next one we read was this:
|Guess Who Lives Here by Louise Woodcock|
Another Eloise Wilkin that we read is this one:
|Baby Listens by Esther Wilkin|
The next one took us down memory lane:
|Baby Dear by Esther Wilkin|
The last Eloise Wilkin book we read was this:
|Baby Looks by Esther Wilkin|
If you have been clicking on the links for the books, you will see that most of them are not available new anymore and the ones that are available as used books are not cheap. In order to circumvent this financial obstacle, Sonlight sent us this book.
|Eloise Wilkin Stories|
All of the above classics are included in this book, plus so many more. Well worth the money. Get it while you can.
Finally, we read a modern-day classic:
|Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault|
This is a MUST READ for all children. It is a fun, rhythmic book that reviews the alphabet in such a fun way. I think we will be reading this every few weeks or so. The girls enjoyed it so much that they asked me to read it over and over again right away.
I am really loving this time with the girls at night. Dan always joins us and it is such a great time for our family.
Off to tend to the girl.
