A Love of Learning

e has a pretty good grasp of regrouping, thanks to all that acorn counting!
Saints and Heroes:
e also wove a paper mat (like Rabia's mat!) for her stuffed animals to sleep on.
This one made her does simply being confidant and speaking directly help to solve problems? I could see this question bumping around in her head. She didn't voice it and I didn't ask it, but I know she's given it good thought.

e's form drawings:

E's final two animals for his zoology block. I didn't require any writing beyond the mapping, which is actually in more of my handwriting than his...mostly because he was incredibly passionate about these two animals that he read the books by himself and was so eager to tell me about them that it might have ruined the enthusiasm to turn it into a writing assignment. Above all else, I want my children to be excited about learning. If we lose the excitement, we lose everything.

E had his second pre-season meet. Just like before, he took three golds, two silvers, and a fourth place. I love watching him perform. This is what he lives and breathes, not for the competition, but for betterment of his own skill. I know his coaches are being careful to push him for personal best rather than higher scores, and I am thankful. He is thriving.

While we were cheering E on at his meet, e was braving her first sleepover with her best friend s. Children's Museum, Muppets Most Wanted, a mom who gets the importance of rhythm and reassurance...she had a GREAT time and can't wait for E's next meet!
