At the start of each new six weeks the second grader brings home a stack of completed and graded papers. It is then my job to decide which papers to keep as a reminder of his second grade year. I am partial to his spelling sentences – #16 is my favorite and oh, so true.
At the beginning of last summer I started a reading program with this one. She still had over a year before she would start kindergarten but really wanted to be able to read. Since then she has absolutely soared. She has such determination and I am so proud of her. I know this girl is going to do great things!
Last night as this little one said goodnight to his father he left him with more than just a goodnight kiss. He left him with a corneal abrasion on his left eye. Those little toddler fingernails can do some serious damage. After a sleepless night for the father, a trip to the ophthalmologist, numbing eye drops and some rest it seems that all is well.
He figured out how to climb into Caroline’s rocking chair all by himself and yesterday he also figured out how to get back down. It was a proud moment for him then and each other time his chubby bare feet have touched back down on the carpet. It’s the little things.
I’m grateful for this never-ending pile of laundry. It means there is life in this house.
I have confidence in me!
One of my favorite songs from this fantastic musical. I’m so thrilled my kids like it, too!
Afternoon scripture study.
A morning person she is not.
