Friday Kid Update

But first, a Mommy update. We are rocking and rolling 2010 so far. This week we have schooled every day, begun our Latin studies and cleaned addition to going to bed with an empty sink, things are awesome here!

Joshua- is doing really well. I think he might be bored with his math because he's choosing to do phonics before math some, an interesting new turn. However, he loves that he can count money and tell time. Both are basic skills so far, but he's doing well.
Leah- Is Leah. She's just growing up, but nothing real exciting. She loves to cut and glue. When Joshua sits down to school, she gets her supplies box out and starts cutting paper into tiny pieces. She insists on cutting it into her supplies box, even with my suggestions that she throw it away. Oh well, she is holding scissors much better than Joshua did at this age. She likes to marker too. Maybe she is going to be my crafting kid. She picks up tons of Joshua's school though, just sitting there. When he is working on his bible memory work, she can always correct him when he misses a word. Very interesting. It'll be interesting to see what her learning style is. She doesn't like working on her memory work but always surprises me that she gets it, when she seemingly flakes along when it is time to work.
Hannah- Every morning I walk into her room and say "Good morning Rooter, Tooter, Cuter, Pooter" She is snuggling with her baby doll and then asks me to put the babydolls clothes back on. Every morning. Lately she is living up to the tooter/pooter part. She is a TOOT. She's started throwing little tantrums when she doesn't get her way, mainly when I don't hold her 24/7. She is finally starting to walk on her own some. Can't wait for that to be a full time hobby!

OMG you are so busy that I am tired now. Good job so when your energy goes ka toot go back and read this instead of wondering "what is the matter with me?" If you get tired out in the future there will be a good reason for it.

I am agreeing with Karen. You are making me tired just reading it. I LOVE your posts. I think those birth order researchers must have something. Your #1 and #2 remind me so much of mine. One time Brian told me that I was just going to have to learn to live with the fact that my son was just average and to quit trying to compare him to Angie. Well, he is eating those words now. He's reading on the same level as her, and is smart in this laid back, "oh well" kind of way. That's going to be your Leah.
