No Pressure Preschool & starting FHC prep (Learning Notes vol. 3)

I don't have a system yet, y'all.  New house, new layout, no kitchen countertop space for a computer- all of it is making it super hard to get back into a groove.

When in doubt: learnin' notes.

Paul is seven, but a young seven.  Until yesterday, I wasn't sure if we would be doing First Communion prep with him this year or not.  Then all of a sudden he started with the questions.  What is communion?  Why does God say that?  Do you get in trouble after you go to confession?  But he wasn't asking me.  He was asking his sweet biggest sister and wow....my heart.

They actually went on a walk through the woods together, just the two of them, basically being like two kids in a book and me, watching them from the dining room, pinching myself because how could this be real life?

Today after he did his math he ran and found the 2nd grade CCD book we have and thrust it into Katy's happy hands.  Greatness.

These two.  Imma call it "aerobics chic."

Cecilia plays games on Starfall.com and pbskids.com and Mary watches over her shoulder, squealing with delight at nothing.  Whatever it is, it makes her happy.  And somehow she now knows all her letters and can count to 20 (Mary), so we'll call it a win.

How about some preschool science while we're at it?

the weather is...

birds are...

gravity is...
And now it's time for all of you to "learn" what it's like to get my husband to be normal for a photo:

Translation: impossible.

Even the dog is concerned.

(can you even believe that that is our yard?  I mean...commence self pinching sequence fo sho)

  1. hmmm...thinking about your 7yo. I havr a six year old that is "young"...she is doing a second year of kinder this year, and attending kinder religion classes at church. I was just thinking the same kinda thing. She has kinda made some leaps, and also is asking a lot about receiving the sacraments,,,,might bump her into second grade prep at church next year. Things that make you go hmmmmm...

  2. Thank you for the introduction to Starfall. My 4 year old just learned more letters in one afternoon than in his previous 6 months of life combined. Mother of the year.

  3. So much beauty around you!!!! Soak it up, darling, and keep sending it to the rest of us. 'specially those of us in dry, brown, non-autumnal regions. Little glimpse of heaven!

  4. Man, I commented hours ago but my phone must have done something wackadoo. Which is totally a technical term.

    I just love each and every one of your posts, Dwija. They are so inspiring, in a very peaceful way. Gentle teaching, sibling love, adorable photos of Chombat and Mary and Cecilia and ALL of the kids, and just general... peace. It does my heart good. Thank you for being you and for sharing yourself with us.

    1. You are too kin, Micaela! I'm so glad this is a happy place for you to visit :)

  5. Tommy is killing it! Killing. IT.

  6. Pinching yourself over the yard? Yes. Pinching myself because Chombie turned one and didn't ask permission. No really, he's HUGE. Love the learning!

  7. "Even the dog is concerned"....too funny! You're right. He looks it.

  8. How come I can't see your Instagram any more? I like following your account and seeing the photos! Please add me again!

  9. Aerobic chic made me laugh out loud! I submit Jazzer-chic as the name of this soon to be trend :)

    And walking in the woods together? What sweetness. Like crack your heart it's so special sweetness.

I never really believed in any of these things but when I was losing Garvin, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly. I found consultant.odia spells and i ordered a LOVE SPELL.
