We are still pretty much going ahead with school stuff, still following the recommended books from the "Before Five in a Row" curriculum.

You are generally eager to learn - I mean, you can read like nobody's business now, and all that basic preschool stuff is way behind you.

I try to keep a rotation of different things to do in the hour and a half / two hours that we use for school ( about 4 - 5 days a week ), to keep you interested and learning.  A lot of it is reinforcement, I suppose.

By no means do I want to be a Tiger Mom, but I'd hate for your enthusiasm not to be encouraged and nourished, ya know? :)

At the end of the day, I judge the length and breadth by your responses, and try not to push push push.

Fingers be Nimble

So proud of you! It took me long enough to post this, but back in early May, you learned how to button up actual buttons!

Playing Dress Up

I admit we don't have many dress up stuff in the house, but you still have several items that you love to use.

When we were over at the Tuttles' house for a dinner, they had a box of toys that had several dress up items, and of course you immediately started hamming it up :)
