Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy -- meditate on these things.
1/25 - Joy, about ready to dance, "Mommy, if you don't see this show, you won't see it again, EVER!"
A good reminder to be present in the moment! I turned away from the computer and gave her my attention and I watched her beautiful solo dance show.
1/29 - Reading with Noah about archaeology and the Stone and Iron Ages. Then he asks, "So... People who lived in the ice age used tools made of ice?"
2/1 - Jeremiah can say the names of his siblings: Jza-nee, No-ee, Thay, Jzoe. I'm not quite sure how to spell the "j" sound. It's a soft one, without the "d" at the beginning.
2/3 - Jon was writing the alphabet for Jeremiah, having him repeat each letter name. After each of J, K, and L, Jeremiah said, "LMNOP!"
2/20 - Jeremiah calls Nathaniel "Nan-el" By 2/22 it becomes "Naniel". (and then later goes back to Nan-el, and still is January 2016)
~2/18 - Joy was playing with her animals by herself. We overheard her telling one, "Don't keep crying, or Daddy will have to come talk to you..."
2/23 - Jeremiah got out three socks from his drawer. I said, "How many feet do you have?" He looked down, and said, "Uh, Uh, Ee!" (That is, one, two, three!) Well, then, I guess he needed three socks after all!
2/27 - Jeremiah put on his shirt, sweater, and pants all by himself.
