I want to share this sweet testimony for this week’s art:
My 2 older daughters went away for a short school break, leaving my youngest daughter (8 years old) at home alone with me. She rarely is at home without her sisters and so she made a …
“Maybe list of things to do while the others are gone”
And on the reverse, she wrote:
- try the letter set √√ (those letters you rub to transfer on to the page)
- play a set of cards
- play a board game √
- watch a movie together √√
I was truly delighted to paint Sketch Tuesday ~ A Fruit Salad with her. (Note to self: add the word “Tuesday” to this week’s spelling list)
Her list is a homeschooling-mom’s pride! I love it that she CHOOSES to do those things which I value in our homeschool as her personal fun time with me!
You will see all the ticks to show what we did during the 4 days!
Her great passion is reading books, even though she really has to work hard at it. So we read together often and finished 2 of her readers – a great accomplishment!
When I asked her what she enjoyed the most, she said that playing a board game and winning 3x in a row against me was the BEST! I forget that she (as the youngest child) often is over-ruled when chosing board games. Playing her choice of game was already such a joy. And beating me three times – well that was the cherry (smile … excuse the fruity pun) on the top!
Perhaps we should institute a “Youngest Child Choses Day” each month? What do you do for your youngest ones?
Have a wonderful week!
