Speaking of sayings in Northeast Arkansas... My little Aaliyah has developed a twang and I am not sure if I like it. She doesn't take a bath, she takes a "bayeth". It is not that, it is "they'at". etc. etc. Even though her father and I correct her every chance we get, I am not sure that she hears the difference. What is a mother to do!?!
It poses a little problem while I am trying to teach her to read. I checked out Hooked on Phonics from the library about a month before DeSean was born and we began the program. She is doing very well with it and has about two lessons left. Today I believe I will check out level two, as well as Hooked on Math.
Next year I plan to begin the Abeka curriculum for K-5; but for now I think this is working great for us.
Homeschooling mother of three children under the age of five...Life is great; but tiring!
|First attempt at family photo - removed Niki because she was really blurry.|
|Second attempt - love Aaliyah's face|
|Third and final attempt...mainly because DeSean decided to wake up and take care of a little business on Daddy's lap! The diaper caught it all. Praise the Lord because my husband does not do bodily fluids, and dry cleaning isn't cheap. LOL|
Until next time,
