Back in Business

Today we started homeschooling again. It was a bit painful for all of us but we made it through the day. Sarah and Wendy are learning phonics. Today at lunch Sarah was demonstrating to me, "Ta ta ta table. Wa wa wa water." She is so proud to be on her way to learning to read.

I'm sure every parent can relate to getting their kid's names mixed up. For example, calling one daughter by the other daughter's name. Right? It doesn't help that Sarah and Wendy are the only two children in our family so far that are the same sex and next to each other in birth order. It also doesn't help that they look very similar. There have been numerous occasions when David and I have called to Wendy, but accidentally started saying "Sarah." Today at lunch, Wendy was so proud of her phonics and said, "Mommy! Sssssssss...wendy!" Poor Swendy!
