Studying the Hiragana

I must say, the boys are so good with their hiragana now.  At first, Ethan was just imitating Nikki and parroting whatever he said.  But later on, I found out that not only does Ethan recognize the hiragana, he even knows how to write them!  It was so amazing!  And all I know are the A I U E O.  Nikki is already writing simple words with three characters.  He has this sort of game in his Nintendo DS that teaches him how to write the characters properly and how to read simple words.  I am always so amazed at how fast they pick up new things in their heads, especially when I do nothing to teach them.  They learn all on their own and as long as they stay interested, they always have fun learning and discovering new things.  Hopefully, they will learn the katakana also in the next few weeks.  Should that happen, it will be quite an accomplishment, I must say. 🙂

Here’s Ethan with his Daddy, reciting the hiragana.  Just another fun lesson for our little boy.  🙂
