Middle Sister's Thoughts on First Grade

My teacher's name is Miss Enslin. I like first grade. I like to do math. First grade is fun. I like to draw on my dry erase board with Norah, Grace and Kaylee. At center time I like to get out my reading tub and get out an animal and find a spot to read.

Make A Wish Walk

Here are the three sisters at the Make A Wish walkathon. They all went right for the face painting, even though I had warned them it would need to be washed off tonight. Don't they look like beautiful butterflies?

A Word From Middle Sister

I went to gymnastics today and have a new skill: handstand on the low beam. YAY!! Little Sister just started gymnastics this summer. She smiles during the entire class. She has a skill, too, on the uneven bar. And Big Sister has managed to add two new skills over the summer. We are having a lot of fun.

Newest Fad

The sisters have been busily collecting these bracelets after finding out they were the newest fad. Seems their mother is a bit behind the times. We have been to Walgreens, CVS and Claire's in an effort to be in fashion. Aren't they pretty?
Just like the the jelly bracelets of the 80s - only these are in different shapes - fast food, zoo animals, farm animals, sea animals, diva, glam, fruits, transportation are just a few of the different types.

Middle Sister's Weekend

Middle Sister and Big Sister are taking ice skating lessons. Today was our second lesson. We both know a little bit more than last time. Middle Sister fell down three times (according to her). Big Sister fell down two times (per her counting as well). Their friend, Peaceful Girl, was also at lessons, so they were able to have fun with her during the free skate time. The next lesson isn't for two more weeks because of Easter. Middle Sister managed to get around the entire ice rink. Big Sister managed to get a blister.

Big Sister and Middle Sister do a Double Down Dog

Big Sister and Middle Sister tried out some yoga today at Field of Yoga. They were skeptical prior to the class, but both of them told me how much they loved their morning there and were hoping to go back next Saturday. Unfortunately at this point today was a one time only event. I am hoping they start some yoga classes for kids because Big and Middle definitely want to sign up.

Middle Sister's Day At School

Today I went to school. We had indoor recess because it was too icy and it was below zero, I think. At Centers we play Dance Class sometimes. We did that today. And we did an art project at center. We also try to make our hair look the same as each other. The whole class sang two songs together today. The other thing that happened today is that there was no toilet paper in either girl bathroom. We had to use paper towels for a while. Ick. Now it's all fixed.

Middle Sister's Weekend

Here's what I did this I did this weekend:
Friday: My sister Leah had a birthday party, so we didn't go to gymnastics. I have fun at gymnastics, but sometimes it does hurt a little. That means your body is getting stronger. I get to go to gymnastics two times this week - on Wednesday and Friday.

Saturday: Our family watched the last Shiloh movie. It's sort of like the book, but there are some different parts like when the criminals are trying to break into the store. The movie was a little scary because in the book you can't really see the scary parts, even though you can guess what they are in your head.

Sunday: After church our good friend, Japhy, came to play. When we had to drop her back off we played a really fun game in the car where we spend our time just talking. At first before we started our game we had the music turned up really loud!

Little Sister Has A Few Words To Say

"Little Sister, What did you do today?"

"Played at Karen's."

"Played toys."

"Take a nap. "

as dictated to her mother

Middle Sister-What I Learned Today at School

Today I went to school. I learned how to go down the slide face first on my belly, feet last. We are doing some work in math on tens and ones (at least that is what her mother thinks she is talking about). We also read the book Just One More Swim. It was a great book.

Big Sister Talk About Penguins

In my classroom all the kids are making books that are going to be published. We are researching animals, and I picked the penguin. So far I know a few facts. Penguins spend seventy five percent of their time in water. They waddle in a funny way. They have black and white feathers. They live in Antarctica. Tomorrow I am researching what type of food they eat.

Big Sister Speaks

I'm enjoying my weekend. Like Middle Sister said, my cousin Meredith came over to see us. She brought me some make-up, too (mine's an MP3 player). I'm obsessed with the TV show Gilligan's Island, so Meredith watched it with me. We watched the episode where Skipper lost his memory and then at the end of the show Gilligan loses his memory.
I wrote a review about the book Abigail Iris The One and Only by Lisa Glatt on my blog, Emileah's Reading Fever.

Middle Sister Speaks

Today is Saturday. My cousin Meredith came over and we beaded together. My favorite thing to do in our house is beads. I love to do lots of different patterns with them. Meredith also brought us presents. I got a make-up cell phone and fake nails. She also put makeup on Little Sister and me. Big Sister got a present, too.
