The Younger Kids
We’ve added a new student to our Academy.
Peanut is only 2, but she is quite precocious.
We are having fun with her,
even the boys love her being around.
On a lucky day we also have her older sister join us,
but usually she is at a private school during most days.
The Letter of the Week: Ss
We did an all about Sunflower theme.

We sorted cereal, and played with stickers too!

Andrew is beginning to be comfortable reading. I am recognizing that it is time to delve into more interesting topics with him.
