On the homeschooling issue...

It has been awhile since I have updated on homeschooling. It is still a rather fuzzy area for me. Time is not on my side. I had my lesson plans out but then... oh well, I am going to stop giving myself anymore excuses.

Just last Monday, Aver was sick and stayed home. So I tried to do a little of handwriting practice along with vocabulary.

She is now on the topic of 'things we wear'. We did the following:
1. English Vocabulary flash cards
2. Identifying the items from the word book.
3. Handwriting practice (which the photo will show you what she had done.)

In reference to the earlier post on the 'Seven Minutes Trousers'...
It is a direct translation from Chinese of a 3/4 pants or tights.
Sometimes, it is rather interesting how the Chinese translate.

I like Tine's idea of a pattern for a pair of pants that can be completed in seven minutes. I would love to havesuch a pattern.

So all my friends who responded... a handmade gift will be in the brew soon. (Once I get the house cleanned and the clothes sewn for Chinese New Year...)

I will get in touch with you soon.

Make a guess...

What does 'Child Seven Minute Trousers' means?
To make it more fun, there will be a handmade gift waiting.
