Doing a little work.

Brianna is the only one home with me during the school day, so I started doing some work with her to keep her occupied. We haven't done tons of work this year, but we have a head start when she goes to school in the fall. She's a bit airheaded sometimes so that tries my patience (I'm low on patience). We can't do too much work at one sitting because we both get frustrated.
She's seems to be picking up numbers and adding much easier than reading words. Some friends of mine use the book Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons . I started using it and it's been such a help. It helps me teach her how to blend the sound together to make words. We were struggling with that before the book.

Just a couple of pictures

Robert reluctantly reads to his younger sister.
Reading is not one of Robert's favorite activities.

The Video Game Effect

video

This is Robert. He's, well let's just say...unique. He constantly entertains us with his antics and funny stories. I've been told he'd make a great politician, because he always has a plausible(at least to him) explanation for anything he does. My mom also tells me I need to "watch him" because he has a somewhat morbid sense of humor. I think that she thinks he will end up a serial killer.

So it's either a politician or serial killer. A hard choice.
