At School

Just in case you wanted to know what Anna June's new* classroom looks like, here's a picture of her at her table, doing a math worksheet this morning. Yes, she was doing a math worksheet. She counted on her fingers and everything.

We'd also like to stop and wish AJ's Nana a very happy birthday. I won't tell you how old she is, but it ends in 0! Happy birthday, Mom! Thank you for being there for me (and Ben, and AJ) every single day, no matter what. If I have any good parenting skills, then I learned them from you and Dad. 

There's lots of fun planned for this long weekend - AJ has a teacher workday tomorrow - so I'd better get back to work to get ready.

*They changed classrooms about 3 or 4 weeks into the school  year, because a 5th section of Kindergarten was added. In Birmingham City Schools, having too many kids and having to hire more teachers is a wonderful thing.

We've progressed slightly on the clown lip - she'll put the lip stuff on it for a few seconds before wiping it off.

We're also making some progress on the reading. She's learning sight words like it, is, in, to, and, a, I, you, and more. To actually see her trying to sound out words is pretty incredible, and a good step.
