Weekly Report Aug. 20, 2011

Lydia is still "reading" her book after an hour in naptime.

 Things this week went about the same as they did last week.  We worked on most of the same things, went to therapy almost every day, and read lots and lots of books.  This week we added The Little Engine That Could, Click, Clack, Splish, Splash, Blueberries for Sal, and The Story About Ping.  I wasn't going to get Click, Clack, Splish, Splash, but as we were walking into the library to pick up the books I had on hold, Lydia suddenly insisted that we get Click, Clack, Moo, which I got for us once a few months ago.  I said sure, but would you believe it?  They didn't have it in the library, so we got Click, Clack, Splish, Splash instead.

Lydia insisted that we still read the books from last week this week too, so I'm just going to keep these books another week and read them again.  She's still reading Caps for Sale every night with Daddy, and she's still reading The House on Pooh Corner with him when he has a chance.  I'm not doing a great job of reading The Secret Garden with her, but I'm not too worried as we're doing so much other reading.

Lydia coloring on all our scratch paper.  Ellie saw that Lydia had dropped a crayon and decided she would try to see what all the fuss was about.
 She continues to color about 7 pages of paper a day.  Her favorite colors to color with are black and brown, which is a bit weird to us, but those are the colors she always picks, so more power to her!  She's been drawing circles a lot lately and coloring them in.  It is fun to watch her coloring get slowly more complex.

Oh, although this isn't necessarily school related, her new favorite song is "Don't Give Up (You Are Loved)" by Josh Groban.  She has made us listen to that song no fewer than 30 times this week.  Oy.


  1. Oh, I'm having a moment of nostalgia. My nearly 12yo daughter's name is Lydia and (sniff) I miss all these great times with Winnie the Pooh and Caps for Sale. Cherish every moment. Your children are beautiful.

  2. I have three daughters ages 5,3,and 1. I see you have Shakespeare for Children in your bookshelf... do you find your kids enjoy it. I've been eyeing it but wasn't sure if I should hold off a bit longer or not..

  3. I really like it, but my daughter is still young enough that most of the reading aloud we do is more for cuddle time and less for her to understand the story, so I may not be the best of help. She likes pretty much everything I read about the same.

  4. That is realy a nice blog. Well written and very informative artice. She likes pretty much everything I read about the same. Cherish every moment. Your children are beautiful. Coloring Pages
