still here

We are definitely still here and plugging along! We took a week and a half off over Christmas. Had a couple of colds and a couple of pukes and now here we are!

Averie is currently working on her writing book, science book, brain quest book, and doing several courses online. They really enjoy the online activities & are really learning from them. She's also working on several spelling words each week and using those words to write sentences during her journaling time. She have a great positive attitude 99% of the time and seems to be the most challenged by spelling. But, she asks to learn how to spell new words quite frequently. When we aren't doing school, Averie is playing with her fairies and her dollhouse.

Bay is doing great! He is learning to read and really excelling at it. He's half way through the book but is already capable of ready other stories and sentences in his other books. I think we both laughed out loud when he randomly read something because I don't think we ever had him try before! It was a proud moment. Baylor is also doing a 1st grade readiness book and a writing book. He has been enjoying his tractors and playing his DSi during free time. He also likes playing with Averie and her fairies.

Miss Colbie is still working with dot paints and letters, she's also still watching her learning show most mornings while the big kids do school. She's been playing with her new baby doll and with pup-pup too. We have also been working on writing her name. She loves finding C's.

Well, Mr. D...he started cereal last week and loves it! He eats cereal for lunch and dinner. Next week breakfast too and probably some prunes and avocados. I have a feeling he will bea great eater. He is very close to rolling over but still doesn't try often. He also doesn't get angry. He just tries and then chills! It is pretty funny how laid back he is. He is nursing at 5am (and going back to bed), 8am, 11:30am, 3:30pm, 7:30pm, & 11pm. He naps from about 9:45-11:30, 2-3:30, and usually a cat nap from 6:15-6:45. D is very relaxed and laid back. He loves attention from his sibs and loves being held and carries around just so he can check things out. He is also very ready to sit up. So, we are working on that! Soon he will move into his crib full time.

Well, tomorrow we are venturing to Grandma and Grandpa's house a couple hours away. We are all super excited!!! It's been a few months since we've seen them! We are also bringing our school books to show Grandma Judy what we learn!

Happy half birthday to my ham tomorrow too! I will leave you with some pics!
