kindergarten here we come!

so yesterday maeven and i were talking...and she expresses her disappointment at my version of kindergarten so far. well i really haven't done much with her besides the reading lessons...wanted to keep it low-key. and frankly, with this little baby, its hard for me to be consistant at anything.

well, apparently she really wants MORE. she mentioned art projects, which she actually does every day on her own but i'm getting from her that she wants me to plan things for her, probably to do with her. no problem, i can do this. my problem is consistancy. ay yi yi. i have great intentions but i just can't seem to keep going with any sort of routine. what the heck is wrong with me? i am afraid i'm teaching my child that mommy just doesn't follow through with things...but darned if i can figure out how to change that. i really do try to put some routine into her life, have been since she was born...but every time i start like gangbusters and fizzle out and then nothing. argh.

well i have some ideas of things to try with her. i've been told about file folder games and i'm on a lot of homeschool egroups that throw out all sorts of ideas all the time. first things first though. gotta get that "big room" straightened out so we have a place to work! i told her that yesterday...we need to get the space ready and then we can get to work on more kindergarten stuff. apparently learning to read isn't enough for her. :)

by the way, she IS learning to read! we have a very long list of words she can now read and she is sounding out new words every day! she is really progressing! so i'm doing something right!! :)
