Calenders and Time

The Boy has been really interested in what day it is, what month it is, and of course what time it is. This has opened a lot of dialogue about clocks, calenders, the sun, the moon, the ocean, the earth, stars, planets, letters, numbers, and space. Somehow, they have all intertwined and made for some fun learning.

We've talked about the different months and days of the week many times before, but he hasn't show a whole lot of interest in them. He always understood Saturday meant Bubba was home, Sunday meant Daddy was home, and Monday meant Grammie was home. Other than that, our days are so changing he just went with the flow.

So, we took a trip to our local library to get some new books. It really is fun to see his eyes light up at the fact he can choose any books he'd like out of all those shelves. I added some of the ones we picked out on the sidebar.

Sometimes I question if I am made out for homeschooling. I wonder if I can keep up with the constant influx of questions, ideas, and debates that come up on a daily basis. The thing is, when all is said and done, I realize this is exactly what I need to be doing. This is exactly what is working for our family right now, and the Boy is thriving. Sometimes, I just need to take a step back and watch what is happening right before my eyes.

Very nicely put. All kids should learn that way.
