6 Months to Go

Katerina is 4 1/2 years old now, so the official start of her homeschooling is less than 9 months away.

Academically, we're very glad of our decision to home school. Katerina can already count to 100, count by 2's and by 3's, and do basic addition and subtraction up to the number 12. We found out how well her reading was coming along when I was looking through the television on-screen schedule one day, and she suddenly said "Let's watch 'Word World'!" - Sure enough, she had correctly read the TV listing at that time, and then she suddenly seemed to be able to read the title of every other show as well. I wonder how long she was able to read those titles before she let on that she could... Now Katerina uses the TV by herself and programs her own shows to watch. Books are another thing she loves - She's as much of a bookworm as I ever was.
