We are making such good progress with reading. J has improved tremendously on her comprehension. Maybe with the next book we will start on written narrations. She could type out a summary per chapter or something. We played Monopoly today, too. I bought the Deluxe Edition yesterday. You can learn so much playing that, like: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, money, banking, saving, spending, mortgaging, trading, negotiating, probablility, debt, bankruptcy, estimation, decision making, consequences, tax, rent, real estate, percentage, basic counting, and handling a lot of monetary situations that adults face. I'd like to play that with the girls at least once a week.
I feel so unprepared for tomorrow's dance competition. J's stuff is all still in the car from the last one. We don't have to leave tomorrow til 11:30am so I have most of the morning to organize. I picked up bobby pins, safety pins, and hairspray before. Her team gear is all ready to go. Her costumes don't need any fixing up. She needs new jazz shoes, but that can wait til next time. I think I need to get her some black tights tomorrow. I'll just run into the drug store in the morning for anything I forgot.
For all of you reading this, don't be shy - leave a comment! I would love to hear from anyone out there.
