I got some super sweet Mother’s Day cards this year:)
You are pretier than a flower. You are smarter than a bee. I love you and you love me. Your the best mom ever. I’ll never stop loving you.
Thank you for taking care of me and love me. xoxoxoxoxox.
Grace has had this cute pair of flowery pants since she was about two years old. I got them at a kid’s used clothing store.
Fast forward seven years and Miss Skinny Ninny is still wearing the same pants. Now they are cute short pants and they still fit her just fine!
Grace wrote the following story for a school report about “What if, then?” They were supposed to write down a situation and then give four choices of how to respond, three that were ridiculous and one that was logical.
1. Go run around like crazy.
2. Stay calm and go downstairs.
3. Scream, yell, cry, and shout.
4. Sit down and don’t talk.
“Life flies by in seconds
You’re not a baby Gracie,
you’re my friend
You’ll be a lady soon but until then
You gotta do what I say”
Grace is in the 3rd Grade this year and I realized I never posted her school picture…
I have noticed such a difference in Grace this school year. She is growing into such a young lady. She is more confident in herself.
Last year she was so shy. We had to bribe her to get her to talk to her teacher or ask questions in class. She didn’t stand up for herself if her friends or other kids weren’t treating hers right.
This year she has blossomed. She has realized that she deserves to be treated well. If someone isn’t doing that then she lets them know it’s not ok and well, they might not deserve to be her friend if they can’t toe the line! She thinks giving presentations in front of the class is fun.
She is such a sweet girl and as always it is a pleasure watching her grow and change as she gets older.
Last month Grace entered a project in the Science Fair at her school. She wanted to work with Daddy and Owen. She chose a project on beaches and how they are impacted if there are rocks on them or not.
She worked hard and did such a good job. I was especially proud because several different people came up to tell me how well she did speaking about her project. She has been so shy and really seems to be much more confident lately. As a child I was terrified to talk to groups of people or people I didn’t know. Grace doesn’t seem to have the same fear that I did.
