Toddler Activities

Although D won't be in "official" preschool for more than a year, he is definitely in the school of LIFE right now.  He spends quite a bit of time doing practical life and sensorial activities.  Here are just a few:

Baking cookies - although his bowl is just pretend, it has all the real ingredients (except egg) for him to stir.  Didn't taste too bad either.  I was mixing the real batch while he practiced.
Vacuuming - D is obsessed with the vacuum these days and if we won't turn it on for him, he'll make the "vrmmmmmm" sound himself.  In this picture, it's actually turned on.

First Post!

Now that D is just weeks away from his second birthday, I'm beginning to feel the pressure of being prepared for homeschooling during his preschool years.  While it still seems amazing to me that preschool has become nearly mandatory in today's world, I can truly see D's potential as he learns so much every day on his own.  So I've been doing a lot of research on homeschooling methods for preschoolers and the early months of this blog will mostly be used to organize my thoughts, plans and supplies.
