Max is pretty much taking over the homeschool these days. A learning lightbulb has turned on and I’m just a mere bystander at the moment. We’re really proud of how he is learning how to read.
He’d still rather be read to, though, and I don’t picture him ever growing tired of it. I usually read a little bit to him during the day (stuff like Magic Treehouse or Magic Schoolbus or, my favorite, Berenstain Bears) but Mike reads aloud at bedtime. Right now they’re into the Hardy Boys. It’s become a big guys-only(arrruhhhaaarll) time and I keep a healthy distance from all that testosterone.
I shelved our Handwriting book until further notice and took a step back and kept that decision on the down low, but wouldn’t you guess, Max has started writing in his free time. The other day he left me a surprise love note on my computer that cheered “Go MOM Go”
So this is what’s up, I see. He wants to be the teacher. Of course, I should’ve known!
This weekend there will be things called POSTS! and PICTURES! and short and sweet updates of other fun M & M topics.
Did someone say m&m’s?
I gotta go.
