Yesterday we went to a little roadside pumpkin-selling place, about five minutes (or less) from our house.
Really, we already have plenty of pumpkins. This little spot is so pretty, I just wanted to get some pictures. Savannah & Isaac picked out this little pumpkin. Actually, Savannah picked it out. Isaac was more interested in using the pumpkins as drums.
 My Little Man. It's hard to get a picture of him smiling, instead of making captain hook poses and saying, "Yo ho matey's away!"
My precious girl. She picked her kitty cat headband.

Isn't this the sweetest picture? This is Savannah with her handsome cousin Noah. I was trying to take a picture of him with his Spider-man face paint, and she hopped in the wagon. Sometimes the best pictures are the spontaneous ones. :)

Well, after getting discouraged about the "school thing", and taking a little break, I started the "BOB" books with Savannah and Isaac on Monday. They LOVE the BOB books! I am so happy! These books are very simple, very short, and VERY entertaining (to a four year old).  I've been working with them individually for just a few minutes everyday.

Today, October 19th, 2011, Savannah and Isaac read their first book. I am over the moon excited. OVER. THE. MOON.  It was a very short book. Very simple words, but they read it.

Now, I know they have a long way to go before they can be labeled as "readers", but this is a huge breakthrough for us, and I just have to rejoice over it for a little while! ;)

Officially, the twins are in preschool. But the great thing about homeschooling is that you can do what they are ready for when they are ready for it. So I'm not going to push them or rush them into anything. I am just so happy that I've found something that they both like and respond to, because their learning styles are so drastically different. Anyway, I just had to document this breakthrough moment, so please excuse the shameless excitement!

Here is a link to the books I'm talking about: BOB Books

A picture of the twins Saturday with their cousins & Mimi (at the Pumpkin Patch). L-R: Gavin, Noah, Savannah, Isaac. This is a quick cell phone pic, right before they went on the hayride. They got their faces painted & had so much fun! So Cute!

Happy Wednesday Y'all!
