It was a drawn out birthday season for Abby this year, but she loves being 5. We had a Frick girls combined friends/cousins birthday party mid January, a party at the nursing home with Jeremy’s family and then cousin Rhory’s birthday, sister Ella’s birthday, Aunt Nicole’s birthday, and then FINALLY Abby’s birthday. She had a countdown going for each event.
She was a little disappointed to learn she had to wait till next fall to go to kindergarten but she loves her preschool friends and teachers. She loves going to school and always figures out an item to bring for the sound box at school that starts with the letter of the week. Abby is doing really well with counting, basic math and letter sounds. She doesn’t like to work on writing her letters at home, she tells me she does that at school. 😉
Abby loves to build houses out of blocks and Legos or Duplos and play with her various figurines. Hello Kitty and friends are her current favorites. She wasn’t into it at first but now she absolutely loves playing Super Mario 3d world, and is always asking to play. She is starting to really like her swim lessons but is still working on jumping into the deep end on her own.
Abby continues to be the most laid back sister and likes to play at home. She always tells me to do my errands while she is at school so she can stay home and play because “going to the store is boring”.
