Kid Updates

Anna is really coming into herself these days. She is so much fun to watch. She loves playing with the boys and they love playing with her. They let her in their forts, and sit and watch Caillou with her.(which is more than I would do, that little boy gets on my nerves!)

Today, she was watching me hang up clothes while she layed on my bed. She was on her tummy with her legs up (so cute!) I was thinking that we would have many more of these times, me working, her watching me and talking to me about her day.
And then she said,
" I think I'll smell my feet."
And then she did.
She said one smelled good and the other smelled "nasty."

Later, we were talking about what a big girl she was and she said,
"When I put my hands on my hips, I'm big!"
And I agreed with her, because when she puts those hands on her hips, and juts that one hip out just a bit she does look like a small version of a teenager.

I know I've written on here many times about how I can't imagine that this season of my life(with 4 children with me ALL the time) will just "fly by." But I want you to know that I am trying to enjoy each day as it comes. Seeing D&D grow up so fast is making me realize how much I need to treasure each and every day. Your prayers have been answered! Go God!!!

ps. I have started D&D in a 3rd grade timed reading book. They read one page, they have between 3-5 minutes depending on the length of the story, and then answer 4-6 questions about what they have read. They have done so good. The most either of them have missed is 1 question. I'm really proud of them and glad that I pulled this book out. They are also reading 3rd grade readers. They are really doing good, just wanted to brag a bit! Samuel is too, don't think I'm leaving him out, he is studying hard and learning so much. It really is a thrill to see them learn and do so well in their school work.

Thanks for sharing! I can just imagine Anna with her hands on her hips! Just like her mama did (and still does on occasion!)

Love you!

I can see her smelling those feet and saying "NASty", in her unique Anna tone. I. LOVE. THOSE. BABIES!

Little Anna is just a doll! Good for the boys and their reading skills! Glad to hear they're doing well!

I remember when both of your feet stunk ! You are a wonderful mother and I am so proud of you and how you are raising those kids.
God has blessed the four of them with wonderful, Godly parents.
They are blessed and so are you and the Right Reverend.
