Warp speed

I have to apologize for my slacking.  It isn't that I don't have anything to blog about (if you know me I ALWAYS have something to say) or that I don't take a zillion pictures to show you.  I think someone turned the dial to full speed ahead for our family and every time I sit down to write something there are always little fires to put out here or there.

I guess that is life with kids though.

The girls had their second week at dance class and they both interacted and danced much more.  They are beginning to teach them small bits of the routine they will work on this year and it is so darn cute to see them doing dance moves.   Now if I can get Dariya to keep her skirt around her waist instead of up around her chest we will be all set.

They are both enjoying the reading program (don't tell Dariya that her little sister is blowing her out of the water though).  Alayna amazed me the other day when she was looking at pictures on my phone and changed to the sight word app I had installed.  We never use this app because it is only the text, no voice with it.  Well my sweet little 3 year old didn't need anyone to voice the words for her.  I caught her reading each of the pre primer words all by herself.  She is loving picking out her sight words in books we look at.  I try to have her read a word every page just for fun.

Aidan is keeping busy with piano, reading and playing outside as much as possible!

We found matching outfits in our hand me downs from my sister!  SO cute!
This week is parent conferences for all the kids and Alayna's IEP conference.  Looking forward to seeing how each of them are doing this year.
Love her Shirley Temple look!

Hope you are having a great week!  Off to put out another fire!

Wow! Awesome sight-word reading, Alayna!!! I just love when I see how things just *click* for our kids sometimes. :-) Love the pics, as always. I can't believe how fast time is flying. The older we get, the faster things go, the less time we have to do the things we plan to do. *sigh*

Love that your girls are learning to read already! That's so exciting!
