She's totally capable, but has been complaining it's hard. I don't' expect this much, but once she gets going, it's hard to stop her. She really makes more work for herself.
Not sure what I'm asking. Maybe ideas on how you do the narration with your 1st?
I almost posted this same type of question last week. We were at the end of our rope! My dd was getting bogged down on the Bible Notebook. It was becoming a drudgery instead of the wonderful little book. We had a few really bad days last week and I knew something had to change.
I first called my husband, then just cried out to the Lord for help. He was faithful and showed me our problem and gave me a solution really quick!
I realized my daughter was just writing too many sentences for her summary. For every summary we were having to use an additional handwriting page. That was just way too much for her with the rough draft and then a final draft in her Bible Notebook. God just showed me (although I don't know why I couldn't figure it out on my own) the summary needed to be shorter and fit on one page.
Since forcing her to shorten her summary to the one page provided, things have been much happier during Bible Notebook time. We are on day 124.
