6 years + 11 months

For the most part, Emily has made the transition to school.  We're still experimenting to find some effective routines and systems.  One thing we tried this month was a Responsibilities & Privileges chart.  There is a list of responsibilities for each part of the day (morning, after school, evening) and a privilege after completing them.  It's more of a reminder checklist of things to do with some built-in leverage if she doesn't feel like complying.  I'll give an update on the iPod next month.

Emily announced her first "crush" on a boy at school.  However, I'm pretty sure she doesn't know exactly what that means.  I think she read about it in a book and is trying it out.  To her credit, he's a really cute and nice kid!

In addition to starting a ballet class, Emily also joined the Clover Explorers 4-H club this month.  It is a Clover Kids club for grades K-3.  They meet on the last Sunday night of the month for an hour with fun activities and programs.
