First Read Aloud

Little Sister can read!  Kindergarten is well underway, and she is into school and loving it.  I am so glad I have a video of her first "real" book and wish I had ones of the other girls when they were first learning to read, too.

Big Sister

Big Sister's State Report Poster. She chose the state of Massachusetts which is quite interesting, but also quite difficult to get the state name on the poster when it is 13 letters long. We are finally done and ready to move on to the next phase of the state report: making a float for a Radio Flyer wagon.

New Glasses for Little Sister

Little Sister is sporting some glasses after being referred on by the school. Vision screening has come a long way. Now preschoolers have pictures of their eyes taken that are looked at by The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. 90% of the children who are referred on require treatment. So, Little Sister is quite proud of her new specs. We hope they help her!

4th Grade, and Other Things - by Big Sister

Hi. It's been a while since I've last blogged. This year my teacher is Mrs. Frey and I like her a lot. Today we started our leaf project. We have to make power points on them and today we took pictures of leaves. Almost a week ago we got to see Max and Ruby live at the McCleod center. If you don't know who Max and Ruby are they're bunnies from Rosemary Wells' books. This past Wed. Middle Sister and I did a cheerleading clinic and learned a dance. On Fri. night we got to preform after the band at halftime. If you don't know Middle Sister has her own blog now! She is very excited so come and check it out if you haven't. You can click here to see it.

A Birthday and Back to School

Today was a big day at our house. Little Sister celebrated her fifth birthday - and it was also the first day of school. All sisters were happy with their teachers and first day back and are ready to go to school tomorrow. Little Sister handed out rainbow cupcakes in honor of her birthday and even stopped at daycare to give some to her friends there. The school year is off to a great start!

No More Day-care

It's official. Our family is done with daycare. Just to help Karen remember how much we appreciate her taking care of us for six and a half years, our Grandma helped us out and made a beautiful flannel quilt for her.
