The girls are in school 5 days a week in the mornings and Mommy is still job hunting which is harder than I thought it would be. Have had 4 interviews in the past 6 months for so but no offers. I just have to keep remembering that God has a plan for us and His plan so far has made me the mother that I am today and is growing my children with integrity.
I am just taking this time to continue reveling in my children as they grow and prosper. There is no better feeling than knowing that I could be there for them emotionally and physically each day even though we don’t have much and we struggle daily with the financial aspects of life. I can’t give them a big house with a playroom full of toys and their own bedrooms. Nor can I give them exactly what they want to eat each day or feed them all organic foods but I know that even if we lived in a one room apartment eating peanut butter and jelly three times a day that they would know my love and devotion for them.

I know what you must be thinking right now. “Homework?!? But they’re in preschool!” So before we panic let me start out by saying that any homework that the kids get is completely voluntary. The girls are a little behind with their writing due to it taking awhile for them to decide on a dominant hand (mostly LadyBug) so their teacher made up some practice sheets to help them with writing their names.
They think that they are so big having homework to do just like their big cousins and sit studiously at the table pretty quietly. Since they’ve been working on it their sheets their names are actually mostly legible!
Hannah is more artistically minded and we (their teacher and I) have found that to help her with her letters if you describe each letter as an object to draw instead of a letter to write she does much better. So her a’s are circles with a little tail, her n’s are little rainbows and her little h’s are rainbows with a stick on top.
Hailey does not do as well with her letters yet. I think it is because she thinks to hard about each one. My favorite one is her i’s. They are a small stick with a circle sitting on top. Her e’s are phenomenal though. How she got those down so easily and the a’s escape her makes me giggle.
