Home School Preschool

So, Beeba 1 is almost 2 and a half, and I have been thinking about trying to insert just a bit of structure into his education. He likes to sing and play with blocks and alphabet letters, and to color and draw, So being that those are all things preschoolers do, I figured I'd find a preschool curriculum for him.

Well, While I was thinking of that, one of the members of The Mom Pack (an online group of MOM Business women I belong to--- you can find their banner on any of my websites, including this one) came to the group asking for a few people to try her new preschool curriculum, in exchange for some exposure and some feedback. It was a match made in heaven. (which makes sense since her curriculum is christian based.

You can find her Curriculum at www.sonbeams.com

I figure, We'll try it, see how Beeba 1 responds, and blog about it, both to chart his progress (and give me accountability for teaching him) and to grant her some small bit of exposure.

Today we Started, week 1, Day 1. It really is meant to be Monday through Friday, but that's the beauty of homeschooling, you can do it whenever you want. I have a feeling we'll repeat the first day a couple of times, anyway...

Beeba 1 loved the idea of practicing the letter of the day on his chalkboard... but is as of yet unable to make a letter without mommy helping. Makes sense. I mostly let him just color, and when he asked me to help make the letter, I did.

We Introduced a scripture of the week, and a color, and a number, too. we did not get any further than that today, but that's OK. I think we did OK for a start.

The curriculum looks very interesting, though I need to read more of it still... it will be better for him when I have everything ready and don't need to check the paper between every activity.

and just for fun, I was playing with photoshop last night... here are a couple pics of Beeba 2... see which is your favorite. (hint, they are the same pic)

Have a happy day!


The Custom is Done!

Here it is! The talked about and maybe awaited Custom Order. Now I can work on Stocking the new HC.

My Hubby took a pic as I was finishing the Diaper Bag. He thought it would be cool to have. I think it would be cool to share. the work in Progress.

And then there are the Diapers. 10 small BBOriginal Fitteds, which will fit a baby as small as 7.5 pounds easily (with a minor bit of folding in the rise) and which still fit my approximately 12 pound baby.

And 4 Small Fattycakes Covers, Bound in FOE, and with a fourth set of snaps, so they should fit the new baby pretty much right away. Technically, Fattycakes are designed to be Ruffled edges, but my experience is that the FOE holds in messy runny poo better, if it gets through the diaper.

And I made her 18 wipes out of scraps, just as an extra. (this is a local friend, and not just a customer, so they are part of my gift to her for her new baby) they are random sized and shaped, like the ones I make for my own house. Some are knit/knit, some are velour/knit, uber soft and cushy, and some are terry/knit... great for messy messes.

Last is the bag itself. She chose this really pretty paisley quilters cotton for the lining,
and I used a panel of it on the front too. The bag is a Hot Mama Bag, like the ones I carry on my site. I added a pocket on the back (which you don't see) for papers and stuff, like the ones they always give you after doctors appointments, or at the hospital.

The bag easily fits all the diapers, and the covers, and the wipes aren't in there, but they fit too. the rolled thing is the changing pad, which is very generously sized. My 2 year old can stretch out on mine and only have his feet stick off.

So thats the Custom. It was a lot of work, but it is done, and now I can move on to other things. See you next time.


An Update...

Remember the Custom order I wrote about the other day? The diapers are done, the covers are done, the Bag is half done... I'll post pics when its all done, lol. I want to bring her the whole set on Thursday at our Le Leche League meeting, so she doesn't have to worry any more about baby coming without diapers. I also made up 18 wipes from scraps, or various materials... some velour, so terry, some knit, etc. and I want to make her a wipes case too.

I am looking forward to having it all done, so I can start working on stocking the new Hyena Cart.
