Leap Frog worked for Joseph

For the past week, I have let Joseph watch the Leap Frog - Letter Factory while I was getting ready for the day. I was really impressed today when I was reviewing his letter sounds with him. He knew almost all of them (it wasn't too long ago that he only knew about 5 or 6)

This evening Matt started writing C A T on the board and showing him how it works to put the sounds together..... in about 10 minutes this is what Joseph was doing...........

Joshua is feeling better

New Year

The new year is here. Hoping for a healthy one. Someone in our house has been sick since Dec 20. I'm really tired. Long nights, doctor visits, ER run, coughing, runny noses, crying, whining, you name it and we have had it.
Matt is the last of us to get sick and yesterday he starting feeling bad. John is back to somewhat normal. Joseph is still taking long naps and coughing. Joshua is feeling better today.....no fever but still coughing and runny nose now. I think the croup has went to a cold.
Through all this, I have been thinking you know some people have children who are terminally ill and some people live where there are no doctors. Our family is so blessed with health, doctors who can help us and friends who are willing to serve us. Matt came home yesterday with lunch that someone at church had given us and another friend called to bring us supper tonight. How blessed we are!!!
