A Quick Peek Into Our Day

I am listening to Cullen read Because of Winn-Dixie aloud to me this week. He's loving the story and enjoying the chance to say the word "ain't" without correction. This is a terrific story and new to me. Don't miss this one, if you haven't read it.
Because of Winn-Dixie
This morning he mastered long division, with and without remainders. It is clear by his smile that he feels a great sense of accomplishment today! (Me, too!)

While I am heating up some soup for our lunch, my little guy is having a quick Pokemon break. He is currently fascinated with these - and no wonder, really. They are adorably cute AND they are constantly pairing up to do battle. What little boy wouldn't find them appealing?

After lunch, we have a bit more work to do - a little language arts, piano practice, and some reading on American history from Liberty!: How the Revolutionary War Began (Landmark Books) which we both really like, recommended through Tapestry of Grace:

Liberty!: How the Revolutionary War Began (Landmark Books)

Late next week, we head to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown in Virginia for our biggest field trip ever. Yes, I'll be sharing plenty of photos when we get back. I may be more excited about this trip than Cullen, but I'm pretty sure he will end up having a blast and learning a few things along the way.
