  • E. Excellent. Egg

    We did have our little school session yesterday.  Promise. 

    Papa was here!  On the few occasions my husband is home during the day I try to find as many opportunities to “hand off” mommy-duties to him as possible.  It’s fun to see what he does when the ball his in his court.  My husband rolls with the punches so well.

    So, yesterday, it was no different.  I suggested that he teach Cylas.  “No problem,” he says.

    The project of the day was egg.  A brown one.  Quite fitting for us, since our chickens are brown egg layers!

    Roma is always in and out of the picture.  She sits around and yells out sounds and stuff trying to copy Cylas.  When she gets bored she starts fiddling, so I usually try to give her something to distract those cute little hands.

    Cylas did very well with his papa.

    They’re always so silly together.

    Cylas got a little carried away with the letter “E” and decided that it looked better as an American flag.
    Then, they read the “Ear” book!

    We’re working on his focus factor.  Because for some reason, staying seated is just really, really hard.

    You're doing great with Cylas. My Mom taught pre-school for many years and loved taking 4 year olds who didn't know how to sit still or hold a pencil and getting them ready for kindergarten. Miss Roma will be that much farther along when it's her turn.

    Thank you, Kathy. It was tough to get myself started doing this. But now that we're well on our way, it's a lot of fun. I'm getting excited about all the other things I can teach my little boy. It's like sitting a very absorbent sponge or cloth in water and watching it soak up. He's a clean slate!
