daily reporting

Today was another day of Writing With Ease catch-up. We did three lessons. I'll spare the gory details, but after this week we should be exactly where we'd have been if I hadn't begun hating WWE so much and not doing it as written. Future of the program is still to be determined.

For everyone who praises Sweet Pea's handwriting- we are still working on some issues with it! Those lines are to help explain and remind her to slant everything the same way. She keeps doing something weird with her little "n"s.
We read Rikki Tikki Tavi today and Sweet Pea LOVED it. The idea of the mongoose and the snakes was so exciting to her. Little Bird is less impressed with sitting for that long of a reading. It'll come in time. I hope.
Other then that, we baked Peanut butter and oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies. Good idea and something the kids enjoyed thouroughly.
Tomorrow I think we'll finish the Earlybird 2A book and then later this week or next week begin our next math book!

This is what Meow Meow looks like when sad. Why is she sad? It's because she can't lay eggs, of course. And yes, Sweet Pea knows that cats don't lay eggs. Just this one, apparently.


  1. Could Little Bird play quietly by you while you read aloud something that is longer?

  2. She does passably well- especially if she can camp on my lap.

  3. Must be a second child thing... I. could sit for the longest stories from the time he was 6 months old...E., yea, at 18 months he can barely sit still for "Things I Hear in Church"! So I keep working on it, it's good training for sitting still in church :)

    As for the handwriting, I'm sure you have, but have you seen this: http://memoriapress.com/descriptions/new-cursive.html

    Ive seen rave reviews for it so I'm thinking of it for I.
