This is what Paul and Chi get to look forward to this week:  Our tot and tiny tot join in with what Alexis and Olivya are doing.  But they do have specific activities that are just for them that hopefully are fun, teaching new skills and increasing their attention spans (we are really working on that one with Chi)

Both the boys have been struggling with their math facts.  So we will be taking a break from their regular math books and doing times tales this week.  We are all excited to start.

Monthly Giveaway

I started something new today that I plan to continue every month.  On the 12th of every month I will choose a winner out of all those who have commented on my new page entitled Monthly Giveaway.   Each month I will review 3 books (or resources) that span various age groups and the winner will be able to choose one of the 3 books.  I look forward to sharing with you some of our favorite and most useful books and resources.  Don’t forget to add your comments along with your email and/or link to your blog.  I love seeing what you are doing in your home and school.
