Well, we decided to dive right on in and Coen started Preschool a little over a month ago! So far, five weeks in, it's going great. He really loves the structure and activities and I am blown away with how much he already knows! We're covering the basics using materials I have collected over the 10 years I taught preschool myself and a whole lot of materials and resources found on Pinterest.

 One of his favorite activities is the rice bin. It used to be just a special activity we did  but now it's a part of his weekly school work. Each week the rice changes to the color of the week and features the letter of the week and items pertaining to the letters sound. Here, obviously, is out "A" bin.
 Preschool wouldn't be complete without songs and finger plays!
 Coen really enjoys sorting and grouping.
 His scissor and writing skills have really come along.
 Also, he can build a train out of anything. :)

I am so thankful that I can stay home and teach my boys. I am really looking forward to our homeschooling journey. My sister, Julie, recently said that teaching is an intimate experience. I couldn't agree more and love being there for all of the struggles and ah ha! moments.
