This is just so wonderful...and it really helps to see that you do a day in review with your children, and visualization of the fingers and hand.

The Rule of Six reminds me of a Goethe quote I have had framed on my wall since before I even had my child. It came from a Literary Calendar, which, sadly, I don't think is being published anymore. Anyway, the quote is:
