Yesterday I did something with my two youngest boys that I haven’t done in a while. I read a few picture books just for fun. No lesson connection, just pure fun and enjoyment.
Ethan snuggled with me while Lance put one of his Hot Wheels tracks together. It was nice.When I was Young in the Mountain <-(aff) was a cute read but Lance said it was boring. He made me laugh because yes, he’s growing up. Charming books like these aren’t his favorite anymore.Lance did like the beautiful pictures. I remember as a child looking at the pictures in books and just soaking up all the details. I loved looking at pictures of “Laura” days/era.
Peeking into their world of living in cabins, when eggs were not refrigerated, and the general store pictures always had lots to look at.Both boys enjoyed (aff) Owl Moon. I loved the simple life, hard working, but closer to nature life. I stared at this picture for a long time after I read the book to the kids.Later that day Ethan and I again snuggled together. I listened to Ethan read from the book, Worth (aff).I need to have another day like yesterday =)
Last week I enjoyed reading (aff) Johnny Texas to the boys. A friend loaned me her book.
And that’s what we’ve been doing at Homeschooling6!
These past two days have reminded me of my Sonlight homeschooling days. I use to read for hours to my kiddos.
