It's so quiet, what's going on?

Yeah, it has been quiet around here. We're continuing to press on and finish our Little Hearts for His Glory curriculum. We only have two weeks left, and it is SO tempting to just jump to the next book...especially since I've got it sitting on my shelf anyway! You know what? I think I will make this our last week, and then I can put that first manual up on eBay or HomeschoolClassifieds....hmmm, with Christmas around the corner, this is a great idea! I will have to get right on that.

In other news, we have really and truly started the additional reading program called Drawn Into the Heart of Reading (DITHOR or DITHR for short). Last week we started on the Folk Tales genre. We began with some short stories a couple weeks before, Rumpelstiltskin, Paul Bunyan, etc. Last week we took Pecos Bill and John Henry from the library, and enjoyed those. This week we're watching the videos of those books just for fun. The girls had a choice of either McBroom's Wonderful One Acre Farm or Jeremy, a Tale of an Honest Bunny as their read-aloud to me books. B chose McBroom, G chose Jeremy...both are enjoying those. Then my read-aloud to them is a lively book called Tales from Grandma's Attic. All the kids are enjoying that book. I've been slow starting DITHR because I wanted to wait until we had started Beyond Little Hearts for His Glory, but finally gave in...I'm glad I did! I have all the books I need to do this, thanks to Paperbackswap and all the wonderful members who are so willing to share!

Lastly, I just wanted to give an update on bowling and ballet. My little guy has really enjoyed bowling, and made some great this is good, and we've signed up for the next session. B wanted to bowl also, so we've signed her up too. Ballet continues to be her favorite thing, however. Yesterday the class was put on the spot to give a performance to the HipHop class in the next studio...I was surprised she didn't shrink from this, but she did smile (of course) but she did talk about it. It is good practice for the recital in May! (She's already told me we'll have to visit the theater the week before so she can get used to that space! lol - She knows how it is!)

Happy Veteran's Day, friends!

*Ü* Blessings,
