ANYWAY, back to the matter of you and er, "school". I can't bring myself to say that we are "homeschooling", because I have no experience whatsoever, and whatever it is that I am actually doing, seems so inadequate. ( I AM trying, though. )
But you, my boy, are learning by leaps and bounds, and actually read our bedtime stories to me. :) And when we do our "lessons", you actually read the instructions.
One of the books we did in the Spring ( I know it isn't officially summer yet, but has anyone told the weather that? ) was "The Story about Ping", which was about a little Pekin duck who lived in a boat house, and his (mis)adventures.
We did several "outdoor" activities tied to the story, including a "Will it Sink or Will if Float" experiment,
a "Why ducks don't get wet" experiment,
and did a little bit of origami, folding a little sailboat, and drawing "wise eyes" on him.
You are also starting to want to spell just about everything by sounding out the word.
Here's you spelling HOSPITAL ( or HOSPITL phonically ), all by yourself when I wasn't looking.
