The Wright gang is finishing its third week of school. Minds are waking back up after a summer of relative ease, pens are rolling much more smoothly over the blue lined pages, and numbers are "carrying" with a bit more purpose now.
Meg was really skeptical about that Blood and Guts book, but it has been a great one so far. Our science this year is Human Anatomy and Physiology (I just got a crinkle in my stomach typing that out...I hope it's easier than it sounds!)
We've got a new student this year. Kate will proudly tell you that she's in "Pre-K"--she won't proudly tell you that her mother is her Pre-K teacher. She hopes you won't ask her that because she wants you to think that she's big stuff and somehow having your MOM teach you how to read is soooo yesterday.
The book Kate's nose is in is called Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons . I found it in a book warehouse in South Carolina about 7 years ago and paid $4.00 for it. The page pictured above is about as exciting as the book gets. Cole and Meg learned to read out of that book. Meg used to call it "my beautiful book". My sisters have each taught at least one child from that very book. We dated and wrote each child's name on the lessons that were completed. It's a much more beautiful book these days with all of that history and hard work recorded in its pages.
