New Beginnings

This past week Millie had her first ballet class and her first day of preschool. She did great! She was excited for both and barely had time to say goodbye she was so busy having fun. George started the big kids yoga class this week. One hour and fifteen minutes of real yoga and he loved it! We also had a great field trip apple picking with our friends. We had the whole place to ourselves and the highlight was definitely rolling down the grass covered hill.

We finished listening to "The Indian in the Cupboard" and have been excitedly counting to one hundred. In a bit of government studies, we volunteered with the Virginia Democrats for the morning. We're talking about letters and sounds and patterns. George and I started reading "The Number Devil." The concepts in it are a bit advanced, but the story keeps the intrest up as we wade through all the numbers.

Just so you don't think this homeschooling thing is all fun and games, we also went to park day and played with our friends in the rain. OK, so it is all fun and games. Just don't tell anyone.
