Today was gorgeous, scorching, but gorgeous none the less. We made it to the pool today and had the whole place to ourselves for over an hour. I noticed that most people are gone right now for vacation, so we are enjoying ourselves at home and hitting all the normally crowded places. We are on a cleaning spree right now because of K’s birthday party this weekend. It is so hard to believe that he is going to be 6 in just a few days!! He has grown and learned is much in such a short amount of time.
Today was day 9 in the workbooks. The boys are really kicking butt and get right into. They finish in less than 5 minutes now, and then they are off to the journals. Today I asked them to write about flags. If you had a flag what would it look like? What would it symbolize? Where and when would you show it? A was a bit more into it than K and went into the reasons we use to flags. K was more interested in drawing and designing a super cool flag.
The difficulty for me is coming up with ideas that will work for both kids at their level. A is a more logical and analytical individual where as K is more imaginative and a real out off the box thinker. Don’t get me wrong, they are both extremely creative, but not in the same way. Their ages also play a factor, as I have to explain many of the topics to K because he doesn’t quite understand what I am asking, whereas other times A gets frustrated that a topic is too “baby.” So if anyone has any good writing topics, feel free to shoot them my way. 🙂
