Let the Learning Begin . . .

Yes. It's been a month since I updated. This is what happens when you no longer live overseas, far away from all friends and family. I also don't take nearly as many pictures. This is partly due to the fact that I no longer live in a foreign country where cool picture opportunities abound, and partly due to the fact that we live with my parents. If you've ever been around a Grandma or Nana you know that they are pretty good at taking pictures! Therefore, I haven't used my own camera in oh . . . a month. I need to get a hold of those precious pictures of the kids that are filling up my Mom's camera.

So in recent news . . . I'm starting a daily alphabet theme with Renae. I partly stole the idea from Sheryl. I doubt I'll do it every day but Renae is at the age where she is able to understand a lot of fun things so I thought I'd take advantage of this stage. I'll try and post our alphabet fun on here as I do each day.

Today is brought to you by the letter A

A is for Apple.
A is for Abraham who obeyed God. (We watched a cute cartoon on youtube and then talked about it.)
A is for Amor, the Spanish word for love.
A is for Aicha who we prayed for today.

I love it! I've been starting it with Aiden when he's interested but out letter learning is random and not as cute and fun as yours! I may have to steal this idea in the months to come! Can't wait to see you.

Glad to see you are blogging again!
Can't wait to see those Wendi pictures!
What a fantastic idea to do with the alphabet and include a person to pray for. I am going to start it with Addison tomorrow! Thanks Julie. (p.s. everytime I make a comment to you calling you "Reger" immediately is where my mind goes! I don't really remember why all of us girls called you by your last name, but it stuck in my brain for sure.)

Finally! What about the friends you keep overseas? Don´t we deserve photos and your great posts?. :)
Jaime doesn´t care about letters right now but I will try to remember your little game to use it whenever he is ready. By the way, I love that you use a Spanish word!

Good for you. :) We don't do it every day--we're pretty go with the flow around here right now. In fact, I think T is going to take two weeks, because it's already Thursday and I haven't done much yet. It's helped me to have structured things to do with the kids & they love it. Have fun!
