Sunday afternoon, Kelly and I stayed at home while Lorena and Christian ran to the store to do some shopping. As they were leaving, I reminded them to pick up a 750 piece puzzle to put together over the holidays. I emphasized the 750 piece part, then reminded them that anything bigger than that would take too long. So now we have the 1000 piece puzzle all laid out on the coffee table in the living room. It is a beautiful puzzle, but the difference between 750 pieces and 1000 pieces seems a little daunting. The kids say “no problem”. We will see. I have to admit, though, that it is going pretty well so far.
One new little thing that is happening as part of our homeschool is that Kelly and Christian spend a little bit of time every day singing together. Christian plays the guitar and they both sing. Christian’s new instructor is truly amazing. All of us take great pleasure in Alex’s knowledge and great work ethic. We want to find a voice teacher for Kelly starting this summer or in the fall.
