One Wild Tuesday


So last week we began school here at the "Knight House!" I am sure that in some houses this is an easy thing, but here it's not! The good thing is that Danenn is as interested (if not more than Teddy)! Andy on the other hand is more interested in my attention when I am teaching!! We have been learning to recognize the letters of the alphabet, the days of the weeks, colors (they already pretty much have this down, but it's good to review), of course we start with Bible, and then today I introduced math. Preschool math is very interesting!! We did a worksheet where they had to find the objects that are the same size as the other. Sounds very easy...but...... My problem started when the first picture was of a sand bucket and shovel. Immediately Teddy went from math to playing in the sand box. Then of course we went from sand to Egypt (logically). Then from Egypt to Joseph (our morning Bible story) and then we were somewhere else. Funny thing is I followed him the whole time. I guess Five year old boys have not fully developed the waffle brain that all men have! So, tomorrow we go to the library for story time...or maybe we will be in Africa??? You never know when you are traveling with a five year old, a three year old, and a mother that's sleep deprived!

  1. Hey - welcome back! I was wondering when you were going to write again. Ahh, school...Crazy and fun times all at the same time. Grace is my poster child for school, but I know I'm in for a surprise when Caleb starts kindergarten next year! We'll have to start learning while jumping up and down or something! :-)
