Our School Girl…Learning So Much

We are amazed once again by Hope.  She loves school and is really learning so much.  The school system is wonderful and so good for the children.  The focus in grade K seems to be getting a good foundation in phonics and sight reading also they do learn a lot of math skills.  Hope can sound out almost any word.  She just blows me away.   I am so very proud of her.  She tries very hard and she understands the necessity of learning and loves loves loves reading books.  I read to her a lot and she is starting to want to read to me (which I love!!)  021411 012

This project is about the 100th day of school and learning to count to 100.  Hope worked very hard on the project.  She did it all except the hot glue.  I used the glue gun and she pushed all the beads into place.    It was really cute and my baby girl can count to 100!

One proud mom,

Sunday Snapshot “Valentines”

This dress is actually Hope’s Christmas dress but was so very pretty and RED that I decided she should wear it again on the Sunday before Valentine’s Day….(I would send her to school in it Monday but she would not be happy about that…not much fun on the playground!!)  Her necklace is a rhinestone heart.  As you can tell she was not very excited about taking time out of her day for picture taking after all a girl’s got things to do…I think she looks very cute and she is such a very special little Valentine to our whole family.

We love you Hope !! Happy Valentines Day!!

Another Snow Day!!! Yeah!!!

Last week we had four snow days and now another one this week.  Hope and I really enjoyed our time together.  Since Audrey and Heath’s moms work in the school system it was just me and my baby girl hanging out and enjoying the beautiful snow.  Actually on Friday morning I defied all odds and successfully drove my car to pick up Sunnie Kay, Ben, Bethany and Audrey so they could all play in the snow together.  Funny thing, during the three years that Hope has been home every time it has snowed it did not work out for Hope and Sunnie to get to play in the snow together…so we changed that.  They really had some fun and hopefully Miss Hope Marie and I will get out a little later today and have a little more fun.020811 076
