I hope that homeschooling my children in their early grades leaves a lasting impression. I LOVE teaching them and seeing the lightbulbs of realization. I enjoy the hands-on fun stuff. So when we pulled out the clay to work with texture and form letters I was sure it would enhance Doodles memories of kindergarten.
I never imagined we would ALL remember this project for a very. long. time. ...
(OK, so the photo is flipped kind of funny, but you get the idea... )
"Can I leave my name out so Daddy can see it?"
"Sure." ---2 hours pass---
"Mommy- I made a ball out of the clay again and you can STILL see my name(on the oak Amish-made dining room table you just got a couple of years ago...)!!?!"
Oh well... It will probably fade and if not- we'll always remember kindergarten with Doodle...
