Super Readers!

I am so proud of my girls!  Yesterday was the end of the year awards ceremony for their school.  Each class gave out a handful of excellence awards: reading, writing, math, Spanish, social skills, and commitment.  BOTH Adeline and Charlotte earned the reading award for their class!  

Addie and her teacher, Mrs. Thomas.

I am amazed at how much they have grown this year.  Here is a picture from their first day of school.  ::sniff::

Adeline has been asking a lot of questions about DNA recently.  She is fascinated that some of her traits come from Mom and some come from Dad.  She got her eye color from Dad's DNA.  She got the freckles on her nose from Mom's DNA.

Today she was hanging up some of her clothes and, as she was tying a bow on one of her dresses, she said, "Mom, I can tie this dress when it is on the hanger, but I can't tie it when I'm wearing it because the bow is behind my back.  I think I got that DNA from you, that I can't tie things behind my back."

Adeline reading to her dad and sisters.  Yesterday she started end of the year testing.  At the beginning of the quarter she made a goal to be at reading level 10 by the end of the year.  Yesterday she passed the level 10 reading test, so she met her goal!!  We're not sure yet if she has surpassed it or not.  Tomorrow she will test at a level 12.

I'm the biggest thing in the ocean

Charlotte recently performed in her preschool end of the year play.  She was an octopus.  And a very cute octopus if I do say so myself.

Charlotte and her friend, Anabelle.  Anabelle calls Charlotte her sister.  The teachers try to correct her and say that Charlotte is her friend, but Anabelle is convinced that Charlotte is her sibling.

Flower Girls

My brother, Michael, got married this weekend.  Adeline and Charlotte have been so excited for MONTHS that they got to be flower girls.   Unfortunately, our camera ran out of batteries, so we don't have any pictures of them walking down the aisle.  But don't they look precious?
