    Our Singer

    No Comments

    Cali loves to sing. The other kids want to play the switch or tablet but Cali usually just wants to listen to her music. Memorize lyrics. Make up dance routines. She loved learning the Christmas song at school. She would come home and practice. Repeat, repeat.


    She has most of the Greatest Showman Soundtrack memorized. They got a Google Home Mini is their room for Christmas so now she can listen ALL the time.

    She is also really good with THE KIDS.

    Her teacher said she is Great at school. She is always on task and killing it at Math.

    She still has her braces on. They closed the gap on top and they are still moving the bottom tooth into place.

    We have been reading Mr. Poppers Penguins¬† together at night. I’m usually so exhausted by bedtime but I am trying to hang in there with the kids for that extra bedtime hour.

    Our perfectionista

    No Comments

    Rose is our 7 year old perfectionist. No matter what she is doing she wants to do it WELL. This can be a really good trait and helps her excel but it also holds her back a little because she doesn’t want to mess up. She was a pretty cute 100 year old Grandma this week:

    • Rose is killing the scripture reading. She has gotten so much better at reading since the beginning of the school year. (3rd grade Lexia level.)
    • She Loves Descendants, dresses up just because,
    • She likes to draw – Santa and elves one week, cats and birds another week.
    • Her teacher says that she is always on task. If she has a sub she leaves Rose’s name for the sub if they have any questions!
    • Rose Loves her friends and she Loves to look cute.
    • She is a natural nurturer.
