Ahh, The Memories...

TheLittlestPrincess is now the last of our children to use the tried-and-true Math It and Cuisenaire rods. I bought these about fourteen years ago. All of the other six used the Addit board when they were younger. It has been a joy teaching her because she gets it the first time it is explained and then practices with glee, dragging the set out to show anyone who will watch her do the drill.

Yesterday she read a little booklet to me and then decided to copy the entire thing into her copybook over the last two days with an accompanying color illustration.

God must have known this old homeschooling mom needed a caboose with some get up and go!

You're describing my Caboose, and I feel exactly the same way about her ;-)

Milestones in the beginning ... memories in the end ... Both blessings to a mother's heart. Please tell Princess we said HOORAY - WE WOULD LOVE TO WATCH HER DRILLS.
