I’m lovin’ the growth in this girl.
She’s loves going to school now, and brings that learning home with her.
She’s constantly sitting at the table doing dot-to-dots, practicing her letters, or showing us how she can write all sorts of words in the “at” family.
She tells me she can read. She gets out this chapter book and says, “Big girls don’t read with their voice, they do it in they’re minds”.
She’s more interested in sidewalk chalk because she can actually write and draw stuff now.
She’s also into riding her bike. She has more strength and stamina, so it’s more fun!
Even at the park she’s more capable. She’s climbing more, sliding faster, and swinging higher.
Although I hate to see the passage of time, with every new phase seems to come some new benefit. I’m loving the independence of this stage, and the discovery of learning. When I pick her up from school she is no longer happy because I’m there to take her home, but more because she is excited to tell me about her day. I never tire of that smile!
