Naps were out for the two year olds. Usually fighting like cats and dogs, Elisha and Uncle Caedmon were caught peacefully sitting together on the couch looking at books. Caedmon is a whole 5 months older than Eli.
Chase and I worked on tracing his name for a little while and then I broke out the pattern blocks. I know we have had these blocks for at least 20 years now....and still use them weekly! I had Chase sort the blocks by color and then I made a simple picture and had him copy it to the side. I then placed a few blocks in a row and had him copy. That was a little more challenging for him.
You can sense his deep concentration. ; )
A pretty flower that he said looked like WalMart. Does WalMart have a symbol like this?
And while I was working with Chase, Jackson took a break and did this! Yes, seeing my boys upside down and sideways is not that unusual...even during school time!
Elisha and Caedmon eventually settled on the rug to play with a huge box of Duplos. I have a rule that the Duplos (or whatever they are playing with) must stay on the rug. Yeah, right!
Caedmon was caught in a thoughtful moment.
All the little boys moved to the school table. Jackson was instructing Caedmon in putting together a puzzle (no instruction was needed, but he is the big brother). Chase was matching patterned four leaf clovers in a file folder game that I printed from a website.
Busily occupied with learning activities
Elisha is putting together a circus puzzle that is over 20 years old!
Fun times with the boys! So grateful to have the opportunity to teach my own little boys and occasionally the grandsons as well.
