Elliott's Progress

As Malachi's school year finished up last week I decided it was time to sit down with Elliott and help him learn a few things. He does very well with the alphabet, letter recognition and can spell his name, but we haven't focused much on writing yet. Luckily for him the letters in his name are easy and he was able to learn to write his name fairly quickly. Here's his first solo attempt at writing his name:
We also made a trip to Pickett Run Farms, the Mennonite nursery, to buy a few flowers and plants for our garden. Elliott loved picking things out and helping plant our vegetables. He was so excited to check and see if "his vegetables grew into food" when he woke up from his nap a few hours after planting them! Hopefully he'll be as excited when we can eat the yield!
