Feeling a bit down today because of something Kelly said..... We were talking and I asked her "What was the name of the blind & deaf girl we watched the dvd about"? She did not know : ( This is the kinda thing that I deal with, She retains the bulk of what we are learning about but not the details like names and dates ect. To be honest with you I was really disappointed and felt really deflated. Now if I were to go and get more books out of the library to go over the Helen Keller story to try and hammer in the info. into Kelly's head, She would pull a fit saying we have already learned about her lets not beat the topic to death. I have read where you need to see something a number of times for it to stick in your memory so maybe if I get a white board and write the "Topics" of the week on it and she sees it each day maybe then info. like Helen's name might stick in her brain a bit better. Do you all have any tips or ideas I could use?
Speaking of Kelly she has a new addiction! I really mean it, this child is now addicted 24/7 to "World of Warcraft". She plays that game non stop, every time she is on the computer that game is on. Her online friends are all on there and they meet up in the game and fight things.... She has even gotten my daughter-in-law into it! You have to buy upgrades to level up your player and the real kicker is you have to PAY each month ($15.00) to play on line. It all seems crazy to me!! I'm thinking of ways to work her needing $15.00 each month into her doing more school work without the moaning and groaning.
Anyway, We will be motoring along with our school work this summer. We are NOT taking off for any summer vacation time. I'm hoping to get back into our more normal pace of things now that my son & daughter-in-law are all snug as bugs into their new home and loving it! Whoo Hooo!
Until Next Time - God Bless!!
