School is going much better for Liliya the past few days 🙂

Today, she walked onto the bus, to her seat, all by herself, and then waved to me from the window. Not a single tear.

HUGE progress.

She now says she likes school, she has fun there, and she would rather go to school than be home with me all day.

SCORE!

We have open house for the big kids tonight. Which reminds me, I need to charge my camera! And empty my SD card.

Rayce, Serenity, and Charlize are all loving school. We have had no issues with anyone not wanting to go.

Holden’s mom said he is doing great, his teacher says he is very good at remembering things.

I do have to say that overseeing homework for 3 kids is a lot more work, as is keeping which papers belong to who. Luckily, they don’t have a lot of homework at this point, usually just reading for the girls and a worksheet for Rayce.

I supposed I should probably post pics from the first day of school, seeing as it’s been almost 2 weeks :-/

Hopefully I will have open house pictures to post within the next week or so 🙂

Operation Overhaul, day 2

Standard

Day two was less productive as far as cleaning, but more productive in other ways.

I got four or five loads of laundry washed, three put away.

Did a little picking up.

Taught Rayce how to wash the dishes, which he did with incredible enthusiasm, and asked afterward if he could please do the dinner dishes. Please, child, have at it!

We did quite a bit today, educationally.

Rayce and Charlize each worked in their summer bridge workbooks. Liliya scribbled in hers.

Charlize and Liliya worked on alphabet and number flash cards, Rayce worked on addition and subtraction flash cards.

Rayce helped the girls with an alphabet matching puzzle.

The girls, Charlize especially, are doing REALLY well on letter recognition and sounds. Charlize finally has the hang of most lower case letters, too! She gets confused on n,m,w,v,p,q,b,d, but those are kind of tricky and look an awful lot alike.

Charlize needs to work on letter formation.

Liliya needs to work on tracing.

Rayce needs to work mostly on reading comprehension.

This afternoon, Rayce read for about 45 minutes while the girls took a bath and cleaned up their room.

We headed over to Drew’s house, ran a few errands, and had a yummy dinner.

Overall, great day 🙂

Hoping I manage to get some good sleep last night, quality and quantity was lacking as far as sleep went last night!

Operation yard cleanup is well underway. In the lead for entertainment value… Worms. Followed closely by stick toss and pine cone basketball. *~Bonnie Lea~*
