~Elijah and Mary...our kindergarten students!~

We're enjoying school, and we want you to know
We've done 10 PACES and have 50 to go!

Don't be discouraged, for we aren't you see,
We're enjoying kindergarten, and so is our TEACHER-MOMMY! :-)

We're having fun and we'll be done soon
We plan to have a joint graduation in May or June! :-)

~TWO PRECIOUS PEAS IN A POD!~
 
 I must admit that I am enjoying teaching our 2 kindergarten students Elijah and Mary!
I normally set a timer for 25-30 minutes and then give them a short break, for I know that the attention span of a little one doesn't last very long. 
But...They are eager to learn, and don't want me to stop when the timer rings.  :-) 

Here's some pictures of my 2 favorite kindergarteners! :-)
~ Here they are gluing soy beans on to pieces of paper that have the #10 on them.~
 ~We were learning about wind so we made "sailboats" out of Peaches.  The lettuce was the waves for our little sailboats.~

 ~Elijah and Mary were so Excited about surprising the fam with these "edible sailboats" as part of our lunch!~
 ~Since we are in Catch-up mood...we often do several days of Kindergarten at one time, and they love every minute of it.
But their school days go fast, even if we do several days in one day, we are normally done in less than 2 hours!~
 ~Their #10s with soybeans glued to them.~
 ~Our mule for the letter "M" with clothes pins for his legs!
And for the letter "E" we made an Elephant with a hole to put their index finger to make his "trunk."~
 ~Elijah L.O.V.E.S. his baby sister!  (I'm not sure she feels the same towards him. ;-)
Here he put his hat on backwards on baby Abigail!~
Since we are catching up on school work...It is study, study, study here in our school house! :-)
We are very glad for our backyard where the 3 little ones can play in between their studies!  
Occasionally we sneak out to the park during the middle of the week, but for sure on Fridays and Saturdays we try to make everyone get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air and exercise.  (Phillip, Kimberly, Sarah, and Noah often go jogging in the evenings as well.)
