Asher: He drew his first family portrait today. Of course I had to bribe him with a piece of candy, but he did it! :) You can see he did draw five faces. I’m not sure when he will decide that bodies are important. This boy loves letters and numbers! He knows all of them, upper and lower case, and about half of his sounds, but writing/drawing?!? No way, not for him!!!

Ella: Her teacher’s aide came up to me yesterday when I was at school volunteering and told me that Ella made her day when she told her, “I don’t believe in luck, only blessings.”
Here is Ella’s first “book report” in kindergarten. At least she’s honest!

Rilyn: She wrote us a chore list recently because she wants to save money to help buy an iPad for her birthday in June. (I guess 8 year olds have iPads these days!) Anyway, so she wants a regular weekly allowance, (currently we pay her by the chore.) We decided that we would pay her $7 a week because she is 7 and we told her to write down some chores that would be good for her to do each week. This is what she gave us: (of course my favorite is #8!) ;)
