We love her new 'do'!
Place: Sorenson home.
Time: Friday night.
Who: Lisa (sitting in chair) and Donald (playing on the Wii)
Donald: "Do you know what game this is? "
Me: (Did he really just ask that?) "Yes Donald, I was a child of the 80's, of course I know what game that is."
What are some of your goals?
Elisabeth has a new trick. It's one that we have seen only a few times, but Donald managed to snap a photo of it a day or so ago. As you can see in the picture, she uses her arms to push upward. This is a huge skill for her. Hopefully it will continue. Sometimes when she learns something new it doesn't last long. For example, once upon a time she figured out how to say 'Mama'. She would lay on the floor and say it over and over and over. That word (her only word) has long since slipped away. And so it is with Elisabeth's development; many ups and downs; things come, things go. But we're hoping that her little push up trick will be here to stay (at least for a while!)
Stay tuned for weekly highlights as our family becomes
better acquainted with the world in which we live.
Q: "How on Earth did you keep animals from getting to your strawberries?" - Rachelle
A: The only animals that we were really worried about were our two dogs (they like to dig)...so Donald put a small fence up around the garden (and it's kept them out so far).
Q: "Do you guys have a pool?" - Jill
A: No, but we are lucky to have friends that do!
Q: "Where are you going for vacation, Lisa?" - Dani
A: We are going to visit my family in Southern California....which will include a trip to Disneyland and lazy days at the beach (among other things).
Q: "What kind of sandwiches [did we eat at the park]?" - David
Q: "What kind of camera do you have?" - Katie
A: Canon Powershot S5IS
Q: "What did Donald the 'cop hater' think of the note?" [see Monday's post] - Susan
A: It makes him 'hate cops a little bit less'.
And a few questions about yesterday's post:
Q: Does she get to continue the dual language program all through elementary school or is it only Kindergarten? - Jill
A: She will be in the program for all of elementary school.
Q: Is this public school? Is this offered? Do you have to apply? Did she have to take prereqs? - Katie
A: Yes, it is public school. There are two classes offered for the entire district with a total of 26 English speaking spots, so there was a lot of competition to get in. Alexandra was tested and fortunately she was accepted. There were not any prerequisites.
A one month hiatus from teaching....and then it's back to business.
FYI: Susan is my mother-in-law.
She is also one of my best friends.
