Breaking the WELCOME TO SUMMER banner!
I've said it before and I'll say it again - time is FLYING by! Anika is going to be in first grade. WEIRD!! She loved Kindergarten and she loved her teacher. I was the mom in charge of the Kinder Splash day and it was super fun to watch the kids celebrate the end of the year! Anika has come out of her shell so much since starting school. I'm hoping that being in Pre-K helps Kes to overcome her shyness. =)
Here she is with her Kindergarten teacher. She was so great!
We've started doing a journal thing every Sunday and on the first day we had a bunch of basic questions for the girls to answer. Here are my favorite responses:
Do I like my name? Why?
Yes because it has two A.s.
What is my favorite color? Why?
Blue and pink because pink is prity and blue is cool.
Something cool about me:
That is definitely something cool about her! She and Kes play for HOURS and have them most amazing imaginations. I love the "stories" they come up with. They incorporate just about every toy in their room and make HUGE messes! Sometimes I get frustrated about the mess but it's hard to stay mad when they are having so much fun and just being kids!
A few things about Anika:
*She is an amazing reader. I'm so glad she loves to read!!
* She does not like milk. I can't wrap my head around it.
*She is very good with little kids and can play with just about anyone no matter their age.
*She tries to use big words and it's hilarious when it doesn't fit into the sentence! I wish I could remember the one she used yesterday!
* She loves to draw.
* Her favorite song is Baby are you down down down down down (that's how she says it when she asks me to play it for her).
* She loves to swim.
We are very proud of her. I'm so glad she's our firstborn. She is going to be (already is!!) such a great help to me and such a good example to the younger kids. <--- I know, so cliche. =)
