Oh, they are adorable! How amazing that you got to see baby hummingbirds grow up! I think that is just so cool! Thank you for sharing those pictures.
OK, finally got around to ordering. This is what I got... Math Express Speed Maths Strategies 1 Challenging Word Problems for Primary Mathematics 1 Textbook for 1A & 1B (stds edition) Workbooks for 1A & 1B (stds edition) It should be here in about a wk or so, so we'll see how it works out. A friend of mine really recommended the speed math and word problems, since she said her dd got a lot out of it. It sounds like most ppl think that the HIG isn't needed at this...
Thanks ladies! I got totally sidetracked, b/c it has been so busy, so I haven't ordered anything yet, but have found everyone's comments very helpful.

The problem is that since I am not able to really get my hands on the books before buying them, I am confused as to which books I really need. Also, which manipulatives did you find most helpful?

I'm not used to having both children home all day! Same here! I was so nervous about DS1 going off to K and now it seems strange to have him home everyday. The structured, "activities" help the day go faster and quite honestly, my kids complain...
Just curious if any of you who send your kids to school will be doing, "after schooling" during the summer? I will be doing a few things with DS1 (going into 1st grade). Mostly focusing on math, since I feel this is his weak point. I'm hoping to do miquon and singapore math with him and my preschooler. We also do a lot of science throughout the yr, so I'm planning to try to keep up with that over the summer, esp since it will fit in nicely with the mommy and me nature...

Not to hijack, but since we're on the topic, are these blueberry bushes supposed to grow back every yr if they are in a pot? If so, do you take the pot inside during the winter?
