I had some goals for the summer. They were not huge, but just some daily direction. One was to go to the park at 10 daily. We've done pretty good with that one, often meeting up with awesome people. Another goal was to have the kids stitch their names. We tried to do that with needles and cross stitch web, but it was a little ambitious. Sunday we used plastic web and plastic rope (gimp, boondoggle), and it was a success! Even better than a success, the plastic rope is glow in the dark so the children have had continued enjoyment from having them at night.
I'd been wanting to have the children memorize things for a while. I wanted G to have something to recite to practice specific speech targets in a sentence. And I wanted M to be signing specific phrases more clearly than she usually does. Her sign is less clear than G's speech. Just last week I learned to spell Aphorism, so we could start memorizing some : )

Don't bite off more than you can chew.
If at first you don't succeed, try try again.
