We checked an item off of Ella’s summer bucket list – bike to aunt Julie’s pool and go swimming with cousins. Mia had been hesitant to go in the pool but today she was loving it.
Today was Ella’s last day of first grade.
I can’t believe the school year is already over. It seems like only yesterday she was getting on the bus for the first day of first grade.
She continues to love learning. Math is her favorite subject and she likes to read chapter books. Ella loves to play school at home and will teach her dolls and stuffed animals if Abby isn’t interested in playing. She must show the same tendencies at school because this is the award she got today:
Ella is sad that school is over but is looking forward to checking items off her summer bucket list …
It’s hard to believe that Mia is 18 months already, time flies! Mia loves to play outside. She climbs up the ladders and slide on our playset and likes to use the big girl swing instead of the toddler swing. She also likes riding in her stroller or the bike trailer. Mia loves to read books with mommy or daddy and watches Mickey mouse clubhouse. She also likes to find and use the markers, glue sticks and scissors her big sisters forget to put away. Mia takes one nap a day and is still our best eater. She loves meatballs, eggs, yogurt and fruit. She will usually even try the vegetables we put on her plate.
Abby and Ella are still loving all things Frozen. They have both read the chapter book based on the movie and know all the words to the songs. They even put on a play based on the movie. Here they have each drawn Elsa and Anna.
(Elsa is the one with the green head and you can kind of see her braid on the side of her head.)
Last week we received a postcard in the mail from a real estate agent stating she had serious buyers looking to buy in our neighborhood and to let her know if we were looking to sell our home in the near future. I was telling Jeremy about it and Ella heard us talking …
Ella: well … we can’t sell our house … I don’t ever want to move.
Sarah: what if they gave us like a million dollars? we would have to take that
Ella: Mom, I think it would need to be more like 9 million.
Jeremy: $250,000? Sold! And then we would buy a bigger plot of land.
I guess Ella thinks this is how much our house is worth. 😉
