|At a rest stop on the way |
back from Clarksville
Tuesday - Back to the grindstone. :) Well, a little bit. The weather was so lovely that all four of us spent a majority of the morning outside. We didn't start schoolwork until after 3, but we completed reading, math, and spelling. I even managed to make it to the gym while Ryan took the girls for more outside play!

her a holler if you want one!
Wednesday - Angry Birds continues to be the best incentive ever!! Before 8:30 we did reading, math, and geography. We finished lesson 10 in reading, introduced subtraction (with great success thanks to Inchimals!), and talked about the different parts of North America. We're also trying to bite the bullet and have Autumn only wear underwear around the house to see if this potty mess will start to click. One day last week Ryan asked her if she had to use the potty and she said something along the lines of "It's okay. I have a diaper." This may take a while. Today was also library storytime and church. I'm finally feeling like we're getting in a routine around here since moving. Feels wonderful!
Thursday - We were a bit more lax on the potty thing. :-/ I've never seen a child look like she's being tortured over this. Of course I've only had two children. If anyone has any potty horror stories I would love to hear them so I could feel better. :-p Ryan commented today how Autumn's language skills are really coming along. It's like out of nowhere Autumn is speaking in longer sentences, and even my sister said something about that when the three of them were in Clarksville this past weekend. Hannah started lesson 11 in her reading book, which is 'y' ('yuh' and 'eye' sounds) and 'oo' (as in 'moon') plus the sight words 'do' and 'to'.

Supposed to help with spelling, but the
polar bear was the selling point! ;)
|Despite the look of fear on her face,|
Hannah has been a great
encouragement to Autumn
