So the Ravelympics is well under way (and those other Olympics too). I’ve crossed the finish line with one of my projects, but I won’t put a pic here because they are a Christmas gift (even though I’m pretty sure the intended recipient doesn’t read my blog, but you never know!) And I’m about 3/4 of the way done with my second project (another gift!). Then I’ll just have three more gifts to knit, and then 4 wips to finish before the Olympics end! I’ll maybe finish one of my wips, but it’s pretty much a forgone conclusion that I won’t finish all 4. I’ll do my best, though!
On the Homeschooling front, William is almost done with his Kindergarten level Math and Phonics programs (I’m using Saxon Math and Saxon Phonics). He’ll be 5 in October, and he’ll be done with Kindergarten before all the public school kids even start school! I’m so proud of him – he’s reading 5 letter words now, and on the brink of reading independently. We started a Word Caterpillar on the wall several weeks ago, (with all the words he can read on circles to make a long caterpillar) and I’m running out of room on the wall!! There’s a good 80+ words up there now, and I have a stack of about 30 more that need to go up. I ordered a blank lined dictionary book/journal from Starfall (love that website!) and I think I’m going to have him write the words he knows in there instead of putting them on the wall from now on. (Maybe I’ll just put the bigger words that he’s reading on the Caterpillar). Right now he’s also learning about the Oceans, and Dinosaurs, and Ancient Greece/Olympics/Greek Myths. He loves school – and bugs me to get started every morning – which I’m very happy about.
Speaking of school – I have to get to it, so that’s it for now!
