No sooner did Big Daddy come home, did he have to pack his bags and fly out to California to be apart of his brother's retirement ceremony. Here he is with 2 of his 3 siblings.
We are all excited that Joel is finally conquering the Bob Books!!! He is so proud to be reading and it is awesome watching him decode the words and being there to give him loving encouragement! So far, being apart of my children learning how to read is my favorite part of homeschooling!! To get him excited about reading the book more than once, I let him stamp a star in the back of each book every time he reads it and he loves stamping with mom's stamps!!!
Here CJ is reading along with her brother. I'm so glad he really likes his Bob Books!!
Never say never!! The kids participated in their first Easter Egg Hunt this year. And they had a blast. It was important for ME, to make sure that my children knew the true meaning of Resurrection Sunday. Earlier that week LJ and I had a discussion concerning why our family does not celebration holidays the way other families do. Meaning why did we NOT tell them that Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy were real. I explained to him that it's not because I think those things are wrong but I wanted him to always know that we tell him the truth. My worst fear was that if I told him that Santa or the Easter bunny were real, and they aren't then he might not believe us when we told him that God is real and he can't see God. I was astonished when he looked at me and said:" Oh, well that does make sense.And sense I do know the truth that God is real and the Easter Bunny isn't can we go to the egg hunt?" I just couldn't say no to that wise statement, lol!!!
