It started out with a Parent Teacher Confrence with Brinley's teacher. Of course, my daughter is awesome! Actually, she is doing really well and is a great kid overall. I wish I could say the same at home. We are both so stubborn and butt heads A LOT! I am so glad to hear that she is doing great. She loves to learn and we can't seem to keep up with her.
Many of you know our decision to start homeschooling Brinley next year. After talking to her teacher and with Matt, we decided that for kindergarten we will put her in public school (I guess the kindergarten teacher is really good), see how it goes and maybe do homeschooling with it. I am going to talk with the school and see how involved I can be. They have a homeschooling program through the school also, so I may go that option too. I guess we will see when school starts up in September.
Just the other day while using the potty (she takes her time), we had this conversation:
B: Mom, let's talk about trees!
M: Okay (with a confused look on my face)...what do you want to know about trees?
B: About the green stuff.
M: Well, what is your favorite tree?
B: Lilac trees because they have pretty flowers on them. Lilac is my favorite color.
M: Did you know that we have two lilac trees in our yard?
B: Oh yes, they are beautiful.
This was in a public restroom, by the way. I am just glad that the conversation was about trees and not about something embarrassing. The kid wants to know about everything. Sshe is like a little sponge and it is amazing what she can remember.
Then we had a playdate and it was so fun! It was actually nice enough for the kids to play in the yard. I cannot wait for Spring! I timed it bad though, forgetting that our school district got out yesterday for the rest of the week. (Sorry about that friends...I will try to remember things like that next time.)
Last night was Stake family skate night. It was fun, but my legs sure hurt this morning. Julie and Cody came with us. I think Brinley made it around one time, Cody about 1/4 of the rink. They would rather run around and play.
Matt and I played a little air hockey...it has been an ongoing battle since we were dating. I RULE the air hockey table! He thinks he can beat me, but no, I am just too good.
