I've been teaching Caedmon a preschool curriculum this year at home on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays. He is doing so well and I'm amazed at how much he's improved over the past several months. Kaiya sits in on it too and participates right along doing her own little papers as well. We focus on a letter of the alphabet each week and at the end of the week they get to put an alphabet animal next to that letter on the alphabet train in Caedmon's room. It's hard to believe that it's almost completely full already.
Another highlight of my day is when one of them wakes up from their naps and they're still a little sleepy. I scoop them up and head right for the rocking chair. Yesterday, it was Caedmon who woke up first...he's never been one to want to cuddle so I take advantage of it every chance I can get. Precious!
So we hung out a little bit before Kaiya woke up.Along with the joys of motherhood, there are those days that it's not such a joy. We had one of those days this week. I call it Spring fever...the kids are getting antsy along with their mama and I'm running out of things to keep them occupied. I was desperate this week and saw an idea in a magazine to make a flipping mechanism to launch paper balls into cups, well I didn't have all the right supplies and it didn't quite work right. As I was scrounging around in the garage, an old marble game collecting dust in the corner caught my eye. I brought it in, cleaned it up and they loved it and played with it off and on for hours. It was Kevin's when he was a boy. His Grandpa Herman made it for him. Perfect! Thank you Lord for rescuing me with something to take the place of the failed flipping thing.
