A school day with Tanek

Today was such a beautiful "Spring-like" day that we wanted to spend a lot of time outside. We started with the things we needed to do at the table, writing, math etc. then went out to the glider by the pool for our reading.

Tanek is starting to like handwriting better and is doing much better at it. At first he hated it and didn't even know which hand he was going to use. Now he is definitely a lefty and doing quite well.

In this booklet he writes the word that describes the picture and spells it on his own. His reading and spelling and math are his favorite subjects and he is doing so well at them.

After we finished most of his schoolwork & since it was such a beautiful day he decided to help his Papa on the fence. Papa showed him how the level works and since he is so big on construction he really enjoyed it. Tanek loves anything to do with building or construction.

We are in the process of redoing the backyard and part of the job is moving the fence. He liked showing me how the level shows the fence is level.

Then it was just playtime. Up and down the slide he went so many times. It was just a beautiful warm afternoon to be outside. After spending the afternoon outside we still had plenty of time to finish up what he needed to do and then he had time to play with his new playdoh toy. It was a good day. Tomorrow it is Library day and it is suppose to rain, so I am glad we got to spend so much time outsdie.

He wanted to be taller than me, so standing on top of the slide, he was taller.

And some special time to just do what litlle boys love to do, playing in the dirt.
