Any suggestions you can give in dealing with the younger one
while working with the older one and vice versa???:
I try to do everything with both of them regardless of the activity but
sometimes the younger one just "gets in the way" while the older one
gets very frustrated b/c he not getting the quality time that he wants to
complete his task???

Her favorite is math. She lines up the rods (if you use manipulatives just buy extra, they get lost anyway), counts one, do, dee, do dee, jump (which she is convinced is part of counting) and then writes her answer. It is so cute. We asl ohave some activites that she does along with her sister. All reading is done together. And that is about all we do for school. We also got her a geoboard, and some puzzles, mempry games (she loves anything with cards) and just anything that looks like school. So she feels she is a part of what is going on. She doesn't nap so dd and I never have time to do school by ourselves. Can't wait to see how this plays out with the new baby. At least she should take naps for a while.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Best of luck, it is a difficult task to keep little one occupied!! It does get better with time.
