School started yesterday here. You should have seen my 4 year old (almost 5) who is starting Kindergarten when I said, “Is everyone ready to start school?” He almost did a back flip he was so excited. Fortunately his excitement lasted all the way through two whole lessons before starting to fizzle out. Ha ha! No, really, we had a great day and a good start to the year.
That’s my four year old taking his work very seriously. We have our real math books, Math-U-See, which we love, and then we have these fun little extras that he has been looking forward to cracking open ever since they came in the mail.
Kumon sent me these sort of as free samples because I own a blog and they maybe figured that if I liked them I’d say something nice about them. I made no such promises but I told them I’d willingly accept anything that they’d like to give to me for free so a few weeks later we got a delightful box full of the cutest, most colorful workbooks ever. They are fabulous little extras to help solidify whatever your child is learning in their regular lessons. The kids just love the fun illustrations and the bright, cheerful colors. So, while I made no promises of glowing recommendations to Kumon when they sent me these books, I am happy to do it anyways. They were a really fun addtion to our first day of school in all of their bright and shiny newness.
I don’t know how it happened so quickly but I suddenly have three school aged children and only one non-school aged child, who thinks he’s a school aged child. He has a desk and work books and wants to do school like everyone else. So I sort of have four school aged children… Only… one of them is 2 years old.
