The video below is a fun song that I taught the boys. They love it! Gabe is just starting to learn how to sing, He is rather quiet even though he knows the song, Abby on the other hand is very loud! You can hear her in the background fussing for some milk.
Today I had Drew work on a nature journal to see if he would enjoy it. Wow, that child is nuts about writing and stories and coloring (when he has a focus). Drew absolutely loved the whole thing! His turtle drawings weren't half bad either. We compared pictures of the turtles John found; though the turtles were released the following day, we had pictures of them to put in our nature journal. Then Drew compared the traits of each turtle, colored a picture with those traits included, and dictated a story about them. He would have gone on for hours with his elaborate story, but I ran out of paper! His story was so cute - he named the turtles Sara and Cana. Where he comes up with these names, I'm not sure of, but he remembered every detail of those turtles and their story. Then he must have had me read the story back to him 7+ times. Wow, such fun we will have this year! I just pray he is this enthusiastic in everything we do!
