Almost everyday when I put Paisley down for her nap Britt asks me, "now can we do fun fings (things.?)" He is 4 but ,does not actually attend preschool because my husband takes the one vehicle we have to work. It usually doesn't bother me but, for this reason I wish we did have a second car, also when I need to take the kids to their Doctor appointments or just need to run a errand.
I am always looking for learning tools for teaching Britt his preschool lessons and activites to make the time fun. Britt loves sitting down with me and learning. We have a bible lesson, learn numbers, practice writing, letter sounds, put puzzles together, usually do some sort of craft. and any other thing I come up with. I really enjoy this special one on one time with Britt. Sometimes I do secretly wish I was getting something else done while Paisley is sleeping but, to me this is far more important.
Britt isn't learning the social skills he would learn in a classroom enviroment but, he has plenty of life ahead for that. One big bonus to him staying home is that he and Paisley are barely ever sick. I thank God all the time for healthy children.
I am going savor these moments because my little boy is growing up and next year this time he will be in kindergarten. I don't know if I am ready for that but, I am sure God will help me when the time comes.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (King James Version)
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
