Our life

I’m loving the wide angle window into life. Our messy living room, kids doing what they do…

Xander is officially four! They are BIG into video games and play with Game Boys all the time. Xander will get to a difficult part of a game and get Isaac or Jason to help him through. Thank goodness the playpen didn’t get sold…its going to come in handy for our new floor project! Also…see that awful brass fan in the foyer? New lights for the foyer and the dining room are ordered!

Another exciting bit of Xander news…

While Isaac absolutely loved this Headsprout.com program for learning to read (and completed it!), Xander could not get through a single episode in one sitting without losing interest. I figured it was related to his younger age and we’d try it again later (still might). But, he found the old box of Hooked On Phonics stuff and asked if he could open it up. He excitedly pulled out the books and was reading CVC’s (consonant-vowel-consonant words) all on his own!

He only spent about 30 minutes on it and hasn’t touched it since, but that’s the beauty of child-lead learning. He can pick up on it again when he is ready.
