I’m still working on all the pictures from our Columbus Day weekend bird hunting/camping trip. Hopefully I can finish that post this weekend. There are lots of pictures to go through!
I want to thank those who read and commented on my last post. I’m humbled and slightly overwhelmed at the response I got and am glad that there are others who feel the same way. So far, it was this blog’s busiest day! And, thank you to those who reached out and shared it.
For those of you prefer I stick to “Amelia” posts, this one is for you. One of the many things I love about her school is how communicative her teachers are about what she’s doing and how she’s doing. Not only are they available to chat for a few minutes when I pick up or drop her off, but through the school blog and the (private) school website, I can learn about the lessons she’s working on and what the class is experiencing as a whole. For someone who had been melancholy about not to being able to share every one of Amelia’s experiences anymore, this has been wonderful for me. It also has given me a chance to better guide our conversations so she can talk about what she’s been doing when she’s at school.
Last week when picking her up, her teacher told me that they had been learning a poem about October and that she had invited any child to recite it in front of the class and Amelia had been one who had. I was immediately proud of her because I’d have probably never have done that (being the introverted person that I am). But what shocked me even more was that I had no idea that she had memorized something. Yes, call me a proud parent, but if I hadn’t been informed, I probably would have missed this milestone. I should have realized it when she recited the Pledge of Allegiance out of the blue a few weeks ago (that floored me too).
Some of you have seen her do this, but here she is again, dressed in her Super Why costume. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
