A Comedy of Errors
I am really excited about the girls' "schooling" this year! We are going to buckle down and do Little Hands to Heaven which they are both loving! Shaoey can now find the A, B, and C sounds! Even Shuangshuang is learning the sounds! It is so cute to see my 2 year old yelling "/a/ /a/ /a/ mama!!!" everytime she sees A.
In addition I downloaded a unit study bundle on The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Grouchy Ladybug, and The Very Busy Spider. They've got some really cute activities! I thought since the boys were working on insects, the girls could too!
I am so EXCITED! I can't remember the last time I've been this excited about teaching my children. I'm glad that I sat down and planned it out. Now I have 2 or 3 weeks to put it before the Lord and ask Him to show me areas that I need to work on or iron out any glitches. I also have 2 or 3 weeks for all my books to come in! Buying books was definitely FUN!
