I feel like (compared to summer) I've been running around with my head cut off. Really-I am not that busy but it feels like it between school and extra activities, we are busy!! Not much to report but I thought I'd update the blog with a little of this and that.
Last Saturday we got to go to the Special Olympics Softball Tournament with the youth in our church. I brought my family along and they loved cheering for the competitors. Make noise?? They are totally up for that:)
Same day, we had Jane's first soccer game. She did really well considering the HEAT!! This has been a very hot/humid summer.
My mother gave us jobs as a kid. I am trying to implement that in our daily routine, but it's tough. I don't know how we've let ourselves get so busy but there seems to be no time for jobs. They do have to make their beds every morning. I don't know why, but I think it's cute how well they do for their age.
Tobe's teacher comments every day when I pick him up. She's really nice and keeps saying, "He'll be fine!!" but every comment worries me. "He needs to work on his listening skills", "He needs to work on his writing skills." "Has he had fine motor problems?"
So I have taken on the challenge of working with him everyday before Jane comes home from school. He is doing so well. We work on his letter writing and some sight words. He even practices all on his own at night. I think it is finally clicking and he is proud of himself. I'm very proud of him.
His school work that led to the fine motor comment (we have since used to to practice so it looks much better than it did):
His sights words that he knows:
