Today is the first-ever blog hop at SecularHomeschool.com. We’ll be doing a blog hop celebrating our successes! So without further ado — here is my post:
I absolutely cannot believe that my two little ones will be turning six this month! Biggest accomplishment? They are clearly reading!!
The other day I was getting dinner ready and I overheard the two littles discussing what was on the calendar. See, I have this huge dry-erase calendar where I update it with events, field trips, co-op functions, etc. And I had gone ahead and entered “zoo” with a question mark on a date.
The girls have been begging to visit the zoo. They’ve gone Wild Kratts cah-razy and all they ever talk about is this animal and that animal and how they want to see REAL animals! So, I decided to tentatively schedule a visit to the zoo weather-permitting.
Well, while prepping dinner, I hear the following conversation:
T.B.: It says ZOO! Right?
T.A.: I think so. Z. O. O. spells zoo!
T.B.: No. It’s zoo but there’s a question mark.
T.A.: So are we going to the zoo?
T.B.: I think so! Maybe?
And I am trying so hard not to laugh while hearing this conversation. Sure enough, I admitted that we were indeed planning on going.
Well, so much for surprises! No more writing surprises on the calendar!
Pretty cool that they can read! They have a ways to go but I feel so incredibly accomplished. There are days when I feel like I am not doing enough, not doing good enough, just plain could be doing better. And then there are days like this when I clearly see my little ones are capable of reading and I know it is because I sit with them and have been teaching them.
Makes me happy. A definite win for this mom!
