Ana Grace, last night you read the Bible story to the family. Your reading is getting better and better, and as you read, you even like to point out how you would have written a sentence differently. From the eyes of a momma that teaches reading comprehension, you make me so proud! You complained of not being able to go to sleep (maybe too much Inka Cola at house church?). We told you to go up to bed and try to sleep. An hour later we were hearing a voice talking. I went to check and see which child was “sleep talking.” You had turned your bedside lamp on and were reading aloud. The story I got to listen in on was “Are You My Mother.” We are so proud of you, sweet big sister.
Maggie Kate, you love to get away with not working. We are having to learn how to discipline you in this area since it isn't fair to your big sister. Your teacher told me that you are more advanced than the other kids in many areas of learning, but you use an excuse that I hear too often. You say, “But I am not big enough. I am not 5 yet.” You use this excuse when you don't want to do work or homework. You are a little stinker! But that work ethic didn't show in your memory verse this month. You memorized (with much ease, I must say) your verse in Spanish. Every day you would quote it aloud to whoever would listen. When it came your turn yesterday at our celebration worship, you spouted it out in front of everyone with ease. My goodness, it makes us proud. You are a big girl! And I cannot wait to see all of those “smarts” used for the glory of God.
Cohen Timothy, my little love bug. You are at such a precious stage, and it will break my heart when you no longer want to hug and kiss me as much as you do now. You are fascinated with moving vehicles, and you love to say the word of a vehicle you hear over and over and over until someone acts excited with you. 🙂 You are sure to place your cars and trucks into a purse and then put your purse in a backpack when we go out of the house. You are talking so much, and it is so fun to be with you every day in this stage. You also quoted your memory verse yesterday in front of everyone. When by yourself, you say, “Jesus… dijo… camino!!!” and then you clap for yourself. This morning you lined up all of your chairs, and said, “Thomas Train!” Your sisters would have been putting their babies to sleep at that age. I also don't want to forget that you love to say our visitor's name, Catherine. But you say, “Cafrin.” So cute! We are so proud of our little boy, and we love you so much.
