Sian has very little fat on her. If you've ever met my kids you'll know they are NOTHING like Clive and I in build (well, except height maybe, Clive's short) So with this chilly weather Sian's hands tend to get cold very quickly (Beth's don't, but she is "fatter")
Yesterday she was wearng her mittens when she got TOO school. But when I picked her up, she'd lost them. Result, melt down. Anyway, she'd taken them off to play in the water (shock #2 this week, she's organised!!! shock #1 was being told she's quiet!) So, this morning I put her gloves on her and told her that if she lost them she'd be gloveless. I get to pick her up this afternoon and she has two pairs of gloves! Her mits had ended up in teh play house!
She was star of the day again today. She got three stickers.. one for spelling "dream", one for tidying up and one for doing her spellings. Her teacher told me she has been whizzing through her sounding out words. She brought home 2 sets tonight and went through them 4x each with ease. I always suspected she could read more than she let on, and I was proved right. She read a whole book to me the other day. The only word she needed help with? "aeroplane"
I'm quite looking forward to meeting her teacher next week and seeing her work. Today she brought home a kite she'd made at shcool. On the back was a VERY good attempt at writing her name (she can't hold a pencil properly yet) *and* she'd rememberd the "hat" over the a in sian. Homeschooling hasn't held her back at all!
