Claire is deep into 2nd grade and has a fabulous teacher this year. I am amazed at the stuff that they already cover and I find myself getting the calculator out to check her math homework. She's doing really well - straight A's last nine weeks and qualified for the gifted program which will start next year.
Chloe is wrapping up her pre-school days and is starting to read. She loves working in her pre-school workbooks and I am here to admit that her handwriting is practically better than mine! (Actually, that isn't too hard...) The countdown is on to I have a kindergartener and 2 kids at Bells Crossing Elementary! :)
If we are not at home, you can bet we are at the soccer fields. Claire tried out and made the CESA Jr. Academy Girl's U7 team and I am coaching Chloe's U6 recreation team. Unfortunately we didn't get the practice nights coordinated with each other, so that means we have someone with practice 4 nights per week and games on Saturday. Good thing the soccer field is only a mile from our house!
Here are some hi-lights from the last 7 months that I haven't blogged...
Jeff and his kids came up to the lake for the 4th of July
Claire learned to water ski!
Claire's 7th birthday
First day of School
Thanksgiving at the Lake with Uncle Jeff and our cousins!
Hiking in the mountains
Eating breakfast with Santa (Chloe's not a fan...)
Chloe's Christmas program at school. She split her eye open after falling into a cubby divider and getting glued shut. (I thought I'd spare you those graphic pictures!)
Christmas at home and then a trip to Florida
Chloe ditched her training wheels
Spring soccer got started (brrrrr)
Chloe ran the fun run and Claire ran the Youth Mile at the Reedy River Run
Whew! Hopefully I'll stay more on top of updates and not cram 10 months into one post! :)
