Tasks

Read to Audrey...it is perhaps the easiest task on the kids' daily assignment sheets, and it accomplishes several homeschooling goals all in one sitting:

1. The basket of books from which Audrey can choose which book to have her brother or sister read is a basket full of carefully chosen-by-me books, so she will hear the stories I have on her literature list.

2. The 3 oldest kids get practice reading aloud.

3. Audrey is occupied while I am having some one-on-one academic time with one of the older children.

4. If but for a few minutes, Audrey is experiencing some quality time with her siblings.

I love having Daniel read aloud to Bethany. He reads with expression very well--more so than my oldest son--and sometimes he gets a little carried away in that regard. But they both enjoy it, and I do, too. :)

Sweet photos!

The ONLY bad thing about visiting your blog is the sniffs I get from missing having little ones. Otherside, I enjoy the flashing back to those times. Gorgeous shots!
