6 years + 7 months
Another month has come and gone. Emily is counting down the days until she is a first grader. She (& I) are suffering from end-of-the-school-year fatigue. We are both extra grumpy. I am worried about her complaining about being bored when school is out, but she/we just need to be done and have a break!
One effect of the fatigue has been near-constant shrill shrieking. Sometimes I just want to hear something come out in a normal voice! When she does speak normal, Emily's favorite "game" is to ask how many letters are in a word--e.g. congratulations. I'm not even sure why she's asking. She is fascinated with the idea of a spelling bee (from the American Girl Molly books) and says she needs to practice first grade words. I'm pretty sure most first grade words aren't 8+ letters long!
Below is art work from school. They painted flowers for May and made a guessing game picture to hang in the hallway for Mother's Day. I figured out which one was hers right away. :)
