Lily Loves Second!

 Lily has truly enjoyed her first week of being a 2nd grader!  This week, her wonderful teacher, Mrs. Amy has been working on a unit about Chrysanthemum.  She has gotten to do some neat things this week.  She even got to share about how her name was special, and this included telling about her Chinese name.  She loved sharing about herself!  I just love her picture of Chrysanthemum at the top, and I think her Main Character, Problem, and Solution Foldable was just too cute at the bottom.

Lily and Kelsey

Lily and Kelsey love to get into trouble at church.   Lily has turned into a little schemer this summer, and I am pretty sure that Mrs. Kelsey had a little something to do with it!  :0)

Mama's Second Grade Work

 Lily wanted to see some of the work I did when I was in second grade.  Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of things from my childhood because I am a neat freak--- and when my Mom passed away...I threw mostly everything away!  I can't help myself!  Anyway, I did keep a few things.  So, before I toss the originals- I thought I would take some pictures of them to document in Lily's Blog Book.
 I have always loved to write-and I can remember practicing my handwriting for hours just because I wanted it to be perfect.  I also always loved to draw, paint, and color!
 The last picture was from First Grade, I think.  But, I thought she would like this one with the heart body.

My Second Grader!

Ready for a brand-new year...and look who snuck into Lily's backpack.  Kitty!  What are you doing?  She must want to go to school too!

My Little Bookworm

I love watching and listening to her read!  She was reading to me while I was getting ready for the day!  I hope her love of reading continues forever!
