Little One is almost 6 months. He spends his days smiling, eating grass, dirt, or paper, and cruising all over the house. Nothing is safe anymore!
Strawberry will be 4 at the end of the month. She pretends to read, smiles a lot, bosses everyone around (she is the biggest back seat driver), plays dolls and other toys, and gives LOTS of hugs and kisses.
Pumpkin Pie is 7. She has a mouth full of holes (she lost yet another tooth the other night!), loves karate, is reading better and better, loves math, loves karate, loves to do her hair creatively and pretends to put on makeup and earrings with water and stickers… oh yes, did I mention she loves karate? I think she would go every day if she could!
Butterfly is 9.5. She loves to read. She is often found escaping from family work and hiding somewhere with a book. She loves art- anything from painting and drawing to sculpting. She also enjoys embroidery and wants to learn to sew with a sewing machine. She is a fabulous big sister and cares so well for her younger siblings. She is playful and has decided she needs more goals and to work harder in learning. She recently completed half a year worth of math in 2 weeks because she wanted to.
Tiger is 11.5. He loves learning. He spends many hours each day learning, reading, and doing projects. He is currently attending an online private school for most of his studies, but he still has time for his other interests: boy scouts, karate, and board games like Dominion. He is a huge help around the house and loves to cook and bake. He is still over the moon for his little brother and is always available to hold him or play with him.
A few years ago I took a picture of the children running up the porch to the house for school… they have insisted I do it again every year. So, for the sake of tradition, we are headed to a great year of learning!
