So anyways I feel the need to talk about how all 3 of my kids (starting to get used to saying that) have been doing. I might get a little braggy. But considering how upset our lives have been lately I'm just super proud of these guys....
#1: I went to my daughter's first ever teacher conference - my first teacher conference ever as a parent. Kindof a big milestone! Let's hope the rest of them from here on out go as well as this first one because she is doing great. To sum up, and I quote, "she is a very smart girl and a great listener." They do a kindergarten assessment test (she still has over a year before kindergarten actually starts) and she rocked it. Knows the letters and numbers and shapes and such. But I already knew that. The things that are more important to me at this point are things like:
She follows complicated directions well. She plays well with others. She transitions well. She handles changes in routine well. She is a good listener. She is a smart kid with a real willingness to learn.
I am SO proud of her! And I'm thinking (hoping) that all of the above is a solid foundation for when school is more than just the alphabet and playing "stand up kitties" (I don't even know but she tells me it's her favorite game so...)
|Crafts are also still her favorite game.|
#3: I had my 29 week (!) doctor appointment yesterday and all is well. I passed the dreaded Glucose Test without being thrown into a Migraine of Doom. Which means all of the scary tests are done with. At this point the baby just needs to grow. The only thing left to worry about is labor. Which the doctor has warned me repeatedly will go alarmingly fast. But we live 10 min from the hospital so.... yeah still pretty scared about that factor.
Since I didn't have another picture of #3 here's one of the other two dancing at the Slovenian Fish Fry:
took a video! You're welecome.
