I'm going to try to do a better job of doing more formal schooling with Eliana this year. I'm not sure how it will end up looking for us, but I've been trying to make some plans - and still have more work to do. I'm excited about doing Before FIAR with her though! I've done this with all of my children and look forward to making some sweet memories with her too! This was where I started my FIAR journey with Christopher and Rebecca in 1997. It seems so long ago that we enjoyed those books. Our whole family has precious memories tied to books and I'm thankful for that!
Summer just calls for picking blueberries, doesn't it? And what better book to choose than Blueberries for Sal. We chose a "cooler" morning to go pick berries and headed out. I learned a couple of things that day too.
I also figured out that I should have made our group photo at the beginning of the picking and not at the end when all were hot, tired and ready to go.
I highly recommend Before Five in a Row if you have a younger child. It is a delightful way to learn and you will both enjoy it! You can find out more at Five in a Row website
