Learning New Things

Although we are done with school for the year, McKenna was thrilled when I pulled out a workbook for her to practice cursive writing. Earlier this year she told me she didn't want to do cursive in Kindergarten, but apparently now that she is a "first-grader" it's a different story.

She is so proud of herself and shows anyone who will look the work that she is doing. Plus Laurianna is her cheering section, so that makes it even better!

Chick-fil-a Language cd's

We stopped by Chick-fil-a tonight to pick up some of their kids "prizes". Right now they have 4 different lanuage cd's for kids: Spanish, Italian, Russian and Chinese. Each cd goes through common language phrases, counting, etc....and has about 10 different lessons on it. It will be great with our Galloping the Globe curriculum next year. The kids had a lot of fun repeating the phrases on the first Chinese lesson tonight (it was so cute!!).
