Time Passes So Quickly

Life sure gets in the way sometimes, doesn't it?  I have so many things I want to share but can never seem to find the time to post.  I have also wanted to change the style of my blog around for awhile now.  I am not sure if I like this new design yet.  I will leave it up for a few days and see how if it has grown on me at all.  There are more changes I want to make.

Anyway...on to the updates.  School is going really well for us this year.  I am seeing big results this year.  Monkey has busted forth with her reading abilities.  She took a reading assessment test this week and scored a reading level in the 9th month of 4th grade.  I am so proud of her!  Monkey is in 2nd grade at home, but she is only 6!!!  I have not given Lulu a reading assessment for a long time.  I will try to do one with her next week and she where she scores. 

Both girls are doing really well in math this year too.  Lulu is sailing through multiplication.  She began division this week along with a more in-depth look at fractions.  She finally likes math.  RightStart Mathematics is a great program. 

Lil can recognize A and M.  We are learning E this week.  She knows 1, 2, 3, and 4.  School is a lot easier with her this year.  And I am happy to be able to say that she is not spending her time watching movies.  She is either working on something in the schoolroom or playing with her toys in her room.  I have seen so much growth, dare I say maturity, in her over the past few months. 

I have lots of pictures to post soon.  I had planned on doing that tonight, but my computer will not recognize my SD card at the moment.
