H's theme in phonics over the last few days was the circus. We don't always do a super fun activity but I love it when we do. H is content to speed thru work and doesn't want to do activities and it's easy for me to skip them. I was reminded yesterday that even though activities are not necessary for him to grasp something (unlike his sister) I still want to do them. Plus, we had a blast putting on a circus for daddy when he came home from work!
