New Boots

Happily posing in their new boots.

Watching a signing time video.

 I think the sign here is Grandma and Grandpa.

 Still wearing the new boots.

Etch a Sketch with your breakfast anyone?

 You run that side, I'll run this side.......not sure how that picture turned out.

 Saturday they played together all day....  like angels......well like angels with their halo's just a little askew....  Wren ....of course......tied a string between the door knob on the dresser, to the one on the door.....which led to a blanket hanging over it......which made a nice fort behind it......which led to............
 more blankets....of course.......and much screeching.....just because.  Ahhhhhh there's Mom, let's hide......etc.

 Nothing as much fun as a surgical glove full of water that has sprung a leak.

We have had so many good reports home on Wren lately!  She is doing so well, and learning new things everyday.  One of the ladies from the Service Center, came by to see how she was doing.  She hadn't been there for a month, and couldn't believe how well Wren was doing, and how much she had improved :)   She is sounding out her vowel sounds, and tries to say all of her abc's when she is signing them.  She is sign reading simple books.  This girl is going places :) :)  Thank you God!!  It has seemed slow, and sometimes extremely difficult for her......and her mama and teacher......but we are making progress!!

I worked at the school for the last 2 weeks as a substitute helper in several classrooms.  I heard from her teachers more than once....." I have to tell you what Iley said, or did"  She has come out of her shy little shell this year for sure!  One day she was HOOOOOTTTT.......i'm hooooot, i'm hooooot........i'm still hot.....her teachers, being well versed in her ability to moan at length, knew there would be no progress unless she was cooled off.  Iley insisted that she had another shirt under her dress, so the teachers let her take her dress off.......then they realized it was a little sleeveless undershirt.  So she ran around her classroom, happy as a clam......and cool as a cucumber in her little undershirt and leggings.  Her teacher did make her put her dress back on to go out in the hall way, and to lunch.
