Yesterday E worked examined algae from the creek trip and found a tiny red worm in it. He became obsessed with pulling it out but it got lost in the muck and we all were forced to search for it for a while before giving up! Then he moved on to playing with the trains.
C lined up letters in alphabetical order, using an alphabet sheet to help him. As he was sounding some letters out (he is interested in this but only mildly) I showed him with the cards how to combine the b-e-d sounds to make the word bed. His little mind nearly exploded for a brief second and I saw a spark of recognition in his eyes. It was a lovely moment, reminding me that YES, someday my kid will read.
E’s “ready, set, go!” routine during a sprinkler run. Later he sweetly asked “Can I pick dis one, Mama? Yes? Yes?” about a sweet pepper and when I said “no” he quickly accepted and dashed off. It’s nice when my answers are accepted that quickly!
