Echidnas

Last night the boys went to cub scouts and us girls went to a sibling class at the hospital.  A sibling class is to teach children what it might be like with a new baby in the house.  There were just four little girls in the class (including Isabel and Sylvia) about to be big sisters.  The teacher read the book, What Baby Needs by Dr. Sears.  She showed them how to hold their babies (all of the girls had baby dolls) dressed the girls up in nurse and doctor clothes, and took us all on a tour of the hospital.

Joey making an outline for our week has really been helping.  It makes it so easy for me to create a school list each day for Luke and Isabel to do.  One quick story about school today.  I was reading from our science book about how mammals differ from the rest of the animal kingdom and after reading the line that says they don’t lay eggs, Luke informed me that some mammals do, like the echidna.  I said, “I don’t think that’s true.”  Sure enough, the very next line explained that some mammals called monotremes lay eggs, such as the echidna and duck billed platypus.  He said he saw it on T.V.  ….thanks T.V.!

  1. That is so cute that they have a class for the kids. Isabel and Sylvia look adorable in the hospital gear. Maybe they’ll grow up to be doctors! Kylee once wanted to be a doctor and a dance teacher when she grew up. Maybe she stills does. I have no idea.
