Dear Noah.......we had a nice day off from school....
we went to grandma C's for lunch. Aunt Melissa and cousin Audrey met us up there and then came back to our house to visit too. We all had a nice visit I think. You let Audrey take home 3 of your computer games to play with for a week. I thought that was sweet that you let her do that.
Tomorrow we have school again....I have decided to back off on the pressure...and just go at the pace we can when we can and not worry so much about what we get done or when. We will get it all done. I may alter the lessons a bit too ...to suit your needs better.
I just made you another batch of Valentine heart-shaped gingerbread cookies....125 of them! I cannot believe you have gone through all those cookies from a few days ago already. Well I did help eat a few myself this time...but still!
You are all about elevators lately.....and playing elevators with closet doors....and looking at Wal-Marts and K-marts and Targets online on Google maps........you can now recognize which store is which store just by scanning the top roof of each store from a birdseye view on the map...it is amazing how you can know the things you know...and so quickly.
You have been holed up in your bedroom most of the weekend...only coming out briefly for food....water....bathroom breaks.....otherwise you are so content with doing searches online on the street maps.....and checking out all the department stores...mostly Wal-Mart which you used to not be able to stand. Now you love Wal*Marts.
Anyway....I have to go finish cleaning the kitchen and I am super tired already...I have to start work at 4:00 a.m. Tomorrow will be busy too. ..me working and then home-schooling you and meeting with your teacher on the phone and then online....and then to speech therapy....and then to grandma C's house to return her keys I had stuffed into my pocket today when I was out shoveling her walks (that I forgot I had in my pocket till I got home and emptied my pockets).
I love you Noah!
