Jack has been doing well with his sight words. He’s up to 43 today! Two days ago I showed him his first word which was ‘big’, but he didn’t want to do words. He looked at it and said ‘little’!!! Smart aleck! When Gran and Pawpaw were here last week Paw held his words up to Jack with the blank side forward (I think the first time it was an accident) and Jack read all his words like that! I think some words Paw even put upside down and Jack got them! I think he’s ready for school, and a full day won’t be bad for him either. His words are: Paw Paw, Gran, Mama, Daddy, Max, Jack, off, on, bed, cat, can, to, at, his, is, big, dog, yes, no, not, you, be, I, milk, with, eat, that, and, a/the (both said two ways), see, hot, all, go, now, for, of, it, or, we, up, try, was. For a while ‘was’ was his favorite word. He thinks the word ‘we’ is the ‘wii’ and often says ‘play wii’ when I hold that card up. Sweet kid. I think I may start adding in two words a day again, or at least sometimes.
Yesterday I told Jack his oatmeal was a little hot. I guess he was feeling ornery because he then said “big hot”.
When I was changing Jack’s diaper Max said his (J’s) bellybutton looked like a smile with one tooth in it.
When he pulled the homeschool cart out Max told me “I think when you tried to awesomize these wheels you destructimized them.”
Yesterday Max told me again (like he has several times) that he wants a little sister. I told him that we probably won’t be having any more babies in our family. I reminded him that Sara from the Bible said she couldn’t have any children because she was too old, and told him that not many women have babies after 40. He said ‘Aw, man! If only you’d had a baby last year!’ Then he said we could adopt a little sister. I told him he should pray about it, tell God what he wants, but not to forget to ask for God’s will. He said is that some sort of secret password? I want your will God!
We haven’t said anything to Max about Jack going to public school, and honestly I’ve been a little worried that when it happened he would be jealous. This morning out of the blue Max asked me point blank about Jack going to PS, and I told him he would go. Max said ‘Aw, man! I wish he could go to homeschool with us!’ I was so glad to hear that.
Need to go finish up the Beef and Broccoli I’m cooking.
