A Sign

We watched "Signing Times" the other day, mainly because the kids couldn't remember much about it.  And there it was, "Signing time with Alex and Leah . . . it's singing time, it's laughing time . . . " all in the big treehouse.

See, after months of Sis taking sign language, Bud has become more interested and we've decided to add "learn a sign a day" to our summer activities.  Only we started early!  That's why we were watching "Signing Times."  And I showed Bud a few useful signs--know, don't know, understand, need, help, right, wrong.  He picked them all up pretty quickly, so we'll keep going with probably more than one a day.

Awhile back, I catalogued a list of words that I found most useful.  It's a good list of words, though I've already forgotten a few of them myself (like "impossible.")  I've also got some flash cards, 500 of them, so that we can all learn some new words.

Should be lots of fun.

"Fun"--I'll make sure that's on the list!

(For more words, see Life Print's 100 first signs.)
