I’ve mentioned how our new schedule has transformed our homeschool and how happy I am with it. The older kids had given me some positive feedback, but Sprout sometimes isn’t as happy to warm up to change. Last night, however, she dictated a letter to her cousins. I was so impressed with the things she thought to mention, without any prompting at all, I had to share.
Dear ______ & ______,
I miss you very much. For my birthday, I got a Baby Alive just like ______’s. I wrote a letter once before to tell you this, but I think you didn’t get it. And for Christmas, I got a small bear and a doll bed and Sweetpea and I got a big play kitchen. And for Christmas, we baked cookies: sugar cookies, shortbread cookies and thumbprint cookies. Mommy got a timer. It’s been helping homeschool a lot. We also made a schedule for homeschool. I like it. Sweetpea and Pumpkin went to a birthday party on Saturday. I didn’t go because I got to go to a friend’s house after my ballet class. (She goes to the same ballet class as me.) I made a picture frame. I’m planning to put in a picture of Socks and me. Socks is our first cat. Sweetpea found her outside. We have another cat. His name is Butterscotch like the ice cream flavour. He had little spots of the colour. They sometimes come into our bedroom at bedtime and they curl up on the bottom of the bed.
