I post more on Facebook these days but I still wanted to do a post on the blog for posterity. 😉
Ella continues to be a great big sister (most of the time). She has learned to adjust her playing from 7/8 years old at school and her younger sisters at home. She can be the typical 8 year old imp at times but we try to keep that reigned in. She has also started to use sarcasm, wonder where she gets that from … must be daddy 😉 .
Ella is still loving 2nd grade. She comes home and plays school with all the dolls. They all have names and back stories. Ella’s favorite subject is math and goes to math enrichment once a week at school and has “bonus” math to work on when she finishes the regular class work. She has started doing Sodoku for fun too. Ella likes to read nonfiction and has been known to look stuff up on Wikipedia.
Ella is still taking piano lessons with Grammie’s Carol and is getting better about practicing. She joined girl scouts this year and took swim lessons in the fall and will take some more this spring. She is quite the little swimmer now. She also loves to play video games on her computer or the Wii u they got for Christmas from Santa.
