Thoughts on the Week

I can't believe this week is already over! Isaiah has been in kindergarten for a whole week! He has amazed me with what he already knows (the kid reads more than we know - even reading the words large and small - and knows all the names of the planets in our solar system), and I'm sure he will continue to amaze me.



We had fun with language arts, talking about Cinderella and The Frog Prince; we had fun learning about light and how our eyes work in science; we have learned how to make a clown puppet using various shapes in math; and we have learned about the seven continents and what makes them special in history.



Isaiah continues to work on writing his name (and writing in general), but he has already made such great progress! I have been so blessed to be at home with him during his first week of school. It has been fun teaching him because I am learning so much more about Isaiah - things that often get overlooked. I'm not saying I don't spend time with my child, nor that I ignore what he is able to do, but it has been so nice to continue to watch him grow.




While he isn't quite used to the whole school schedule, yet, it has been a lot of fun. Today, for example, we imagined we were in the circus as tight-rope walkers. Isaiah has a vivid imagination that he has absolutely no problem sharing with others. The past few days, that imagination was put to use in new ways - imagining what we were learning about. I hope that he sees that school isn't just boring stuff, but it is fun . . . I hope we can keep it that way. =0)




This is a "bat-wheels" =0)


Well, I really just wanted to show you some of the pictures from this past week that didn't quite make it on the blog yet. I also have a song to share, too . . . but that will have to wait a bit. =0) It's nice to blog about something other than health and prescription issues! =0)


Speaking of health, things are about the same: the normal swelling, flushing, itching, leg pain, sleep issues, etc. Everything is pretty much "normal" . . . for us. =0) God is good and has been answering our prayers!

Until then, here are a few pictures of Brikey the (toitle) tortoise and a curious grasshopper. =0)




Oh, yeah . . . I forgot . . . the quote. It was from the Princess Bride when Inigo was excited to finally have the opportunity to meet the six-fingered man (who killed his father): "there will be blood tonight!"

so great! I love the look of wonder in Isaiah's eyes...I'm so glad you're getting this opportunity to teach Isaiah even more than you already have...what a gift. Have fun! (and that grasshopper photo is amazing!)
