Silke who a week ago would not sit still for a second, is now colouring whole pictures inside the lines and actually using different colours!! I was really worried about her not recognising some numbers and getting them mixed up (3 and 5) so I started Kumon and she is a star. Does it every day and I discovered that even though she still mixes up 3 and 5 she has a really good pencil grip and is excellent at writing the numbers. If she can remember what to write... but all in good time. And so while many parents might think I'm nuts letting her do Kumon at age 4 at least I feel better that she is not the dufus I thought she was (sorry honey!!)
My girls' last ballet lessons for the year - Silke loves it but doesn't always do what she's supposed to and Mieke is still a bit shy and needs to gain some confidence.
