Oliver's still doing the intensive potty-training protocol. We're not able to mimic it at home because of the other kids, so I'm getting smaller sessions in during naptime and working on practicing mands and tacts instead. He's getting pretty good at identifying things using signs. It's a slightly different skill than requesting, but it's coming along nicely.
Jane's memory is a little mind-boggling for me. We walked her through her bedtime prayer (the good old "now I lay me...") line by line and she picked it up pretty quickly. She memorized our prayer before meals (the good old "bless us O lord") just from listening to us. We started saying a family Hail Mary on May 1st during our evening ceremony for Mary in May and she has that memorized already. She has episodes of Yo Gabba Gabba down pat, including the movements of the characters. And she remembers our Latin lessons, too. Right now, she's running around and singing, "sum nauta, sum nauta, sum nauta, I am a sailor!"
I'm curious to see how she would react to more singing-type lessons, so I ordered Song School Latin today. I just got the CD, not the workbook. It should be here next week and I'm going to keep it in the car to listen to on our trips back and forth for Oliver.
Peter is still army crawling, is sitting up well, is able to sit up on his own, still has two teeth coming in the top, and is refusing every sippy cup known to man. He has one month left of the bottle and then it's sippy cup or nothing. (Big words now. I'll probably be backtracking in five weeks.)
We're still on track for a July 1st start date, but I'm not sure what things are going to look like around here for long. We are going to be moving out-of-state in the fall, so we had to put our house up for sale. Amazingly, we got an offer on it the first day it was listed and we've already signed the contract. We'll have to move to a short-term rental in the next couple of months before making the big move in October/November. Part of me wants to get as much done as possible before the move; part of me wants to take an extended vacation and not start first grade until we're settled in our new home. I'm sure we'll wind up with a mix of both. For now, we'll just take it one day at a time.
