So far, so good- the Latin sounds good and getting faster (he has to be able to keep up with the bigger boys) and after a few days of drill we started timing the addition flash cards. Will went from 3min 42sec to 2min 58sec and Mary went from 6min 15sec to 4min 3sec in 2 days! If they beat their previous best time they got a m&m. With that incentive, they enthusiastically did them 4 times in one day. While there is still progress to be made, I am very encouraged. (I did it in 1min 14sec)
Mary has been copying prayers in her special notebook with the adorable puppy on the front and I happened to find a stray paper while cleaning up with "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you" written on it. I think I will tape it up in our schoolroom for all of us to focus on. May we do everything to show God and the Saints how much we love them.
