November update

Time flies while I am busy! Bear and Skunk are doing well and growing by leaps and bounds. We had a well child check for Skunk today and she is in the 98th percentile for height (38.5 inches) and the 96th percentile for weight (35 pounds with diaper and shoes). She is talking away and uses words like comfortable! We were sitting at the supper table last week with the song Shine (by the Newsboys) playing. Skunk pipes up and says "I have a shiny hiney!" She loves the Wonder Pets and has seen the episode where the pets help a glow worm to love her "shiny hiney." We laughed and laughed.

Bear is a bicycle riding fool - up and down the street. We struggled with long division so have backed up to short division tables again. She is doing well with multiplication. I have a plan for restarting history and finding Bill Nye for some science. We are doing Chemistry at co-op as well. The idea of Providence Prep a couple days a week is really looking nice right now. But not sure I want to turn over her education to someone. But the classical education model would be so good for her. She fights me quite a bit with new concepts and I think it would be good for her to go somewhere a couple days a week. I am praying about the education situation that God would make it clear to Computer Man and I what is best for her.

Happy Thanksgiving!
