|"I tied them all by myself!'|
On a day-to-day basis Anellah is doing great! She is herself again: cheerful, playful, and creative. She continues to love kindergarten and is beginning to learn to read. She has a special friend at school whom she refers to as her "best friend forever." The two even hold hands on the carpet during story time. It is fun to watch her develop her own friendships rather than just being friends with the children of my friends.
The weather has been unseasonably warm so we have spent lots of time outside from setting up a "treehouse" (ie. area under a tree that the kids pretend is a house)
|"That is a BIG tree!"|
to going on "hikes" (ie. slow walks in beautiful places).
I have let Evelyn cry a bit more at night and it's allowed both she and I to get more sleep. In fact last night she slept all night!! Getting more sleep has helped me to be able to get a bit more organized since I can get up before the kids get up now and has definitely helped me feel more sane.
