Grati-Tuesday, February 7th

I’m so grateful for my wonderful hubby.  I couldn’t do this life without him.  I love this picture of us!

My Levi can read a chapter book in an hour now.  He’s in 1st grade!

Ethan is starting to love reading!  He picked these books out and paid for them himself.

He is now able to read and understand Wayside School books.  He read it aloud to me Sunday night and was laughing about it and telling me why it is funny.  This is a 3-5th grade book.  He started at Rocksprings Elementary on an end of first grade level.  Saxon phonics and just lots of reading has helped him so much.  I’m so grateful for his teacher.  She is fantastic.

Sunday night we told the kids that they had to read or write, and Ethan and Levi chose to do Mad Libs.  It was great because they are starting to understand and apply parts of speech (nouns, plural nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, etc).  I’m so thankful for how far they have come since they started school!

Karis and I have started to write each other back and forth on a Google Document.  I’m so grateful for this opportunity to see into her heart more.  She surprises me with the maturity that is deep inside that she doesn’t often show in person.  I’m excited to see how this helps our relationship (she has been through a lot because of me).

Afternoon reading time is fantastic!  I’m grateful that they can read on their own now!

I’m grateful that my boys love playing games (Karis does sometimes as well).

I’m grateful that the kids’ school celebrates things and has fun.

These are the boys’ classes.

I’m grateful to have found some pictures and emails that my brother and I exchanged.  Here he is holding Karis.  I wish he had smiled more.

This is a Simpsons picture that he made.  It’s Robert and me, my parents, and Karis.

I love this Anne Lamott quote.  It reminds me of the important things.
