I find it fascinating that our apple tree is drafted to give us 4 varieties of apples. I was quite puzzled for sometime, lol. Our fruit trees and other bushes are ready for pruning thus we will be learning the details of how to do this. As much as I love nature and as much nature studies as we do, I clearly lack the green thumb of caring for such things, but we will attempt. *smile*

Andrew’s goals is for mom, yes me, to become more consistant with his lessons. The child loves to talk and learn much, just not from a desk sitting down and doing it. *sigh* When I have that sorted to how that actually looks (much of a montesorri/waldorf style), I will gladly share it with you all. This month the goal is to get our long a/short a sounds comprehended, work on basic addition facts, practice handwriting, be still during story time, and to participate in activity time. Blending his learning activities between the preschoolers and older student proves to be quite the juggling act, but he is so worth it!
