It’s Monday… with a vengeance

Right now, Noah is screaming because he wants help building his magna tile tower. The first one he built fell apart, and it’s the end of the world as we know it.

Letter of the week- I, J, K, and L

I decided to not send Noah to preschool this year and do my own letter of the week program, and it has been an excellent choice. The preparation for the activities each week is sometimes a little stressful, but it’s definitely worth it. I have also discovered that not all letters are created equal.
