This one is the typical oldest sibling: friendly, outgoing, and helpful. Probably because of her constant desire to please and do what she's told, she had to be coached through her session. A few of the poses are her own, like the angelic clasping of her hands. That pose in particular speaks volumes about her spirit.
In grade 3, we are looking for her to further her ability to work independently, further foster her love of reading, and be able to know her multiplication table by memory. She will be assisting in picking the direction and subjects of some of her studies this year since we've seen her excellence and passion really come through in areas that she is already interested in. In the spring we gave her a book on dogs and already she can identify every breed she sees and can rattle off a litany of facts about them.
Since this mama wakes later than the kiddos, she is the first to run to me with open arms and an ear splitting grin. She is starting to understand that her sisters and brother are looking to her to be an example. Monkeys see, monkeys do. Though halfway to nine years, she is sensitive and so in need of her mama's reassurance and encouragement.
Yaz, we are so excited to see the growth and intelligence God is getting in your life! Welcome back home to school!
