Jack turned four last weekend, and we celebrated with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons, presents, and MONSTER JAM! We had a total blast, and as of yesterday, we’re still recovering.
My plan, (don’t laugh) now that Jack is four, is to start making him sit for practical homeschool lessons. We’ve been focusing on letters and numbers, what they are, where they go, and who they belong to for much of this past year. I’d like to advance into handwriting this year.
Jack draws, he draws cute little stick people, but that’s a relatively recent development.
I got him a new chapter book for his birthday, I read it to him, of course, and the lack of pictures tortures him but he is impressed by the presence of so many letters.
Jack is still really into vehicles and play acting. He’s always acting out little scenes and monologues and telling us stories, and that’s how he processes new information and stores it in memory. He also likes to teach his little-stuffed animals their colors and numbers etc., and it’s adorable.
Anyway, here are some pictures of us from the last few weeks.
