I think most of it centers around homeschooling. I think.
Jorge is 4 1/2. We have done some pre-school stuff and he loves to learn. We did figure out that he is color deficient. Not color blind, but he can't determine yellow and blue very well. I was so thankful to be the one to figure this out and not some frustrated teacher in a classroom with 20 other 4 year olds wondering why this boy "won't focus." Needless to say, I wasn't any better because I thought he wasn't paying attention, but then God put in my mind/heart, "Rachel, he may not actually understand the difference. he could be color blind/deficient." So to the Internet we went and found some ways to "diagnose" it. Oddly enough, it was through the came Candyland that we figured all this out.
With that behind us. I now have to make a plan for when we start Kindergarten. I think I've decided to go with My Father's World Curriculum (feel free to let me know of any others you might suggest). With that, I feel very confident to start this coming September. The only thing that scares me.. well the three things that make me tremble and think.. If I can just survive are:
Well I don't actually have a picture of the little butter bean.. Isaac.
Come September I will have a fourth baby that will be four months old, a 2 yr old , an almost 4 yr old and 5 year old. Okay, Im not whining.. Just stating the facts.
The reason this makes me wonder my stats on survival is that today I had to lay down the law and put up a baby gate to keep Eva out of the schoolroom. Which she obviously did not like. The reason.. She will get into everything and will absolutely keep me from being able to focus on what I am trying to do with the boys. So come September I will have two little ones that will need to have something to do while I do school with Jorge. Well, actually i know that we will do his school in the afternoon while the other three are napping. But Alex will have to do school in the morning with the baby gate up.
Seriously, I am not complaining.. just wondering if I will survive it.
