This is a picture of Talieisn (the small figure) dancing with peacock.
This is Batman. Taliesin told me he has a lot of shields around him.And what Batman would be complete without the Joker?
This is really cool. This just proves to me that kids will learn at their own pace. It's kind of difficult to see, since it's written in green colored pencil; but this says "Pizza Hut" and there is a check-mark beside it. A few nights ago, my sister ordered pizza from Pizza Hut when she was babysitting. Taliesin and Nathanael had fun with their pizza night and kept one of the coupons (never know when you will need a picture of a pizza for art, you know). Well, yesterday, Taliesin was sitting on the floor with his "art book," and this is what he did: he looked at the Pizza Hut logo and said, "P," then wrote "P" in his book. Then he looked back at the logo and said "i" and wrote "i" in the logo. This continued until he had completed the words "Pizza Hut." Then he checked it, since they did have their pizza night, after all. Like I was telling Kelsey, this is a good step in his learning to read. He read a logo that he was familiar with and knew what said and copied what it said into his own book.
Well, today seems to be a better day. Taliesin and Nathanael are both fever-free and appear to be over the virus they had (thankfully!). Taliesin's rash is gone, and, so far, Nathanael has not gotten it. I'm not feeling too wonderful today, but still going strong. This afternoon, we have Taliesin's and Nathanael's dance orientation, and this evening we have the homeschooling meeting (not unschooling group, the homeschooling group). I think while Taliesin and Nathanael are playing this morning, I will draw up some questions for Marc Newman of Movie Ministries. He has agreed to an interview for my Heath Ledger book (one of the chapters on The Dark Knight). I think he will have some interesting things to say that would fit perfectly in the book. What I really want to do is print different ideas about the movie from different people. I have a couple of other people in mind to contact as well. His interview is definitely a good start! Also have a college essay due on Wednesday over whether the Book of John is a Gospel to the Gentiles or the most Jewish of all. Of course, I have to back up my ideas with ideas from other sources. Should be fun!
