This little beauty has been hungry for knowledge since the end of last school year. She is so much more interested in “cool work” (as she calls it) than Angel and Lovebug ever were. I think after seeing them work hard and learn all last year, she was so ready to jump on the bandwagon. She has a morning notebook like the older two and is very busy learning ABC’s and 123′s, colors, shapes and the other preschool jazz. She, of course, is picking up a lot of the Classical Conversations grammar we learn at homeschool co-op as well, and adores singing along with our very long Timeline Song.
I know everyone says this about their children, but Sunshine is unbelievably bright. She shocks me regularly with what she understands and her general level of thinking. When she is set on figuring something out, her attention span is never-ending. She is such a hard worker! Her speech therapist always comments about how clever she is, and even recently invited her to join the local Infants & Toddlers preschool program, as a developmentally on-target peer with normal speech and development. My jaw dropped open. I knew that her speech had improved over the last year, but I didn’t realize how much.
So very proud of this sweet girl. And amazed that I get to be her mama.
