I am trying to incorporate more educational themes to our day at home, now that Elijah is at school. Sarah will start mother's day out in Sept, but that is more for social aspects, although I expect she will grow academically also. Today we have practiced stringing our animals (like lacing beads-fine motor skill) while saying the name and sound of the animal. She did wonderful!!! The rooster is her favorite right now. Then we got out the operation game and named body parts and used the tweezers to put the objects out of the spaces(very hard fine motor skill for Sarah!). Next she undressed the baby and put her on the potty and then she practiced her toileting skills. Then centers. She played in homeliving area and cared for the baby. After centers we learned about people at work. Today was the doctor. Sarah is going to be a great doctor. She loves to listen to your heart. She even makes the sound for the heart beat. She is a little rough with the shots, lol. Then we had recess. Jumping, running and climbing were all incorporated. Music with all of the instruments was lots of fun, followed by quiet time reading in the library nook. We also practiced the ABC's and the sounds--this just was not fun today, so did not go to well. Now we are back in centers and Sarah is pushing the baby and the sword(don't ask) in the baby stroller! For lunch she is going to get to help make her sandwich and pour her juice. Then rest time!!!!! This is the time I am most excited about. She is doing so good. We are very proud of her progress.
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
