It has been awhile since I posted! But my Great Aunt Pat told me a couple of weeks ago that she still checks here from time to time. No pictures today, Aunt Pat, because my external harddrive is broken for the time being, but here's a little update.
Adam will be 18 months old in a couple of weeks. In the last few days, he has started repeating words when we ask him too, which just thrills his mommy. He is VERY even tempered and plays independently a lot, which we love. He absolutely adores tractors, cats, and fruit (foo, foo he says.)
Bart is on his 3rd flock of turkeys now, and getting ready for the 4th. He is incredibly busy all the time right now, which Adam and I hate. :( But he is truly the hardest worker I know, and I appreciate more than I can say. He got an MP3 player for Christmas, and we've had some trouble with it, but it seems to be working now, and he said it made choring fun today! Even with the frigid temps...brrrr.
I am getting ready to go back to school tomorrow. I'm going to do a unit called "Train Your Brain." I got the idea from Nurtureshock. I want to teach them that by working their brains, they can become smarter. I'm going to write a little ditty about how the brain can get smarter, stronger and faster, have them brainstorm activities that would help train their brain, maybe do a little skit about brain training, etc.
There's an update for you, Aunt Pat!
