Proud Mama Again

Olivia and I were drawing on the Magna Doodle today and for the first time. . .Olivia wrote her name.  She left out the a at the end and added in some extra lines, but it’s there!! I am beyond proud because this is the first time she has even attempted it.  Usually when we work on it, she just scribbles.  At preschool, they are using the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum, which Olivia seems to love. . .probably because there are songs that go with it.  It’s based on the concept that every letter is made up of a big curve, little curve, big line  or little line.  Too bad it wasn’t on paper so that I could save it forever.  I’m hoping to at least save it until daddy gets home from work.

That is seriously impressive. I love the idea of how letters are made of circles and lines! That is awesome. I'm going to look into that more!

Nathan learned just this week how to write his name too! What are the chances?! And, btw, handwriting without tears is the number one seller at the homeschool convention each year too. So. It's a good one :) great job Olivia!!!!

That's great! Kellar will not write his name, he's a stubborn lil fella for sure. I haven't blogged or kept up with Kellars preemie friends in quite some time. Hope all has been well your way and ya'll have a Merry Christmas...
