Back to school..

We took a little break for our vacation and Thanksgiving but school is back in session now full force. Jadyn is getting extra reading help from a tutor from Bryant college and it has made a huge difference for her. She no longer hates reading and it doing so well. I am so proud of her progress.
Jesse continues to amaze me every day with how quickly he catches on to things and the things that he remembers. It's been a great year so far and I am having a blast watching their little minds explode and seeing their joy when they are working hard at something and it finally clicks..
last week Jesse continued his lessons about the human body and nutrition. He made a food pyramid, did lots of food pyramid lessons and also was happy to learn that his formula fit into all the food groups, because it has all the nutrients he needs to survive. I think these lessons (that I was dreading for obvious reasons) really made him realize just how important his formula is to him..he asked lots of questions about it and it was a great lesson for both of us..Jadyn learned about Rosa Parks this past week and was absolutely horrified that people would be treated that way just because of the color of their skin. At one point she actually started crying. She's such an empathic little girl I'm so proud of her..she really has a heart for other people.. above are a few pictures of their work this week...
