Wow, has it really been over two years, WAY over two years, since I have written a blog post on here!?!
I have no idea how to catch up on everything that has happen, but I don’t want to just give up on this, so I will see if I can fill in some of the big gaps.
The biggest thing is that Mia started Preschool and Sunday school this year. Her preschool teacher is Mrs. Moe and she is amazing! Mia loves going to school and she loves all the new friends she has made. They are learning letters and numbers, the have Mr. Shane come in once a month and teach them about animals and their habits. I was so impressed when Mia started telling me about bats and how they are nocturnal! I had been trying all summer to teach Mia how to write her name, and she had no interest in learning. But after only a few weeks in school, she casually asked me on day if I would “like to see me draw my name”. She is such a stubborn little smarty!
She also loves Sunday School, although she had a harder time adjusting to it. She was so used to being in the nursery and only having play time. But after the teacher walked through the schedule and a couple weeks of going she is doing well in there too. I love listening to her retell the stories that she is learning.
I know this is just the start of her formal education, but I have a feeling she is going to do just fine. Now all I have to worry about is that first day of Kindergarten and what in the world I am going to do with myself while she is in school!
