When we first started my sweet Sarah really wasn't listening so we needed to repeat quite a bit- this will be a challenge for her BUT if she knows I will stop and discuss what we are reading she WILL listen! It just so happens that my sweet daughter from China is just as much of a gunner as her MOM! Which most of the time is wonderful and then sometimes it is very challenging!
We have actually gone all the way back to Sonlight P 3/4. I was feeling like P4/5 was too far ahead of her and knowing that we can go through this at a faster pace I decided to go back to the beginning. It's the all important picture to word ratio! It just has to be the right blend! But she is responded very well, today!
We started with the 101 bible stories- the story of creation. We reviewed it a couple times and then moved on. We got to a story about a robin building a nest. Sarah asked " Who built the nest?" "GOD?" which was so cute because of the lesson before but I did have to say "No, the birds built the nest for their babies." ;-) Sarah is pretty sure God does everything now! That was a successful lesson- by golly, I think she's right ! He does! Anna of course is with us but she is usually doing her acrobats during school time ;-) I will be doing this lesson and all of them again ;-0 I mean ;-)
and again and again and again!
This post was supposed to be about naming your child in an older child adoption but I got side tracked SOooooo stay tuned I will let you know my feelings on this all important issue!
