Internet FreeBEEs:

Sorry this is up later than usual I lost track of time this week. We have been having a lot of fun with LEGOS recently. Rowyn is very tactile and I have had to get creative with the way I teach him things. So thanks to online friends and Pinterest I have started using Legos more throughout our homeschool days. We have used them to build structures like the Great Pyramid and Sphinx, we have used them as counting aids and we have even used them to play games. Now the only thing I need to do is buy MORE LEGOs...if you know where I can get a really good deal please post a comment below.
