Nick is gifted in academics and I nurture that by sending him to school and staying on top of his schooling.. I make sure he's being challenged but not so much that he hates school.  He's very good with computers and we nurture that by having him learn stuff from my husband.  He is not very athletic and that's ok with me but we do make him move and play sports once in a while..


Emily is talented with her dance and so we send her for dance lessons weekly..  She is also gifted academically and we treat her the same way as Nick. :) She can play other sports if she wants to and she enjoys Soccer :)

My oldest really loves art. Drawing, coloring and painting are her favorite things to do. We have gotten her tons and tons of art supplies. She spends lots of time painting on canvas with my dad, who is an artist. He has taken her to see other artists that he knows in town. They showed her their studios. She loved it.

Youngest is interested in music. We buy her lots of musical toys and i sing with her a lot.

I'm slowly learning what gifts/talents my children have. Today we found out that both kids love ice skating. Their first time every on the ice and after 2 hours both were skating on their own! 

As far as interests: we just encourage it and support them throughout.

Thanks - I have more to add tomorrow. I have to get them off Dh's phone lol I ran my battery dead taking pictures and video of them. I loved watching them today. I skated the first half and then the second half (after Drew went on his own) I walked around the outside taking pictures/videos and cheering them on!

I've enrolled my daughter in many activities(horses, soccer, basketball,dance, gymnastics, ballet,)  trying to find that one activity she will love and stick with. I had been focusing on physical activities but as it turned out it's something more mental. My kid loves languages. She started learning Italian at about a yr old. She now speaks french, Spanish and Chinese. She has a list of other languages she would like to learn.
