I have a friend that reminds me that I have neglected Emmie's blog :( I promise I haven't. However, over the last few weeks I have become the Treasurer for a very disorganized PTA. Well, disorganized before we started with an entirely new PTA this year. It has been very time consuming and exhausting to get the "books" in order from the mess that was left. Not to mention, none of the previous presidents filed taxes! What? How can someone NOT do that? Anyway, that has taken more time and energy that I would like to admit.
Emmie has been plugging along. Some days are still awesome and some days still suck. She is working on her multiplication facts. I remember when I was in 3rd grade, my teacher played this multiplication tape over and over and over. I hated that tape and thus hated multiplication! Emmie, however, is enjoying it :)
She just sat down on the couch, her hair is brushed, teeth brushed, and she is dressed for the day. She turned on one of her favorite shows, "Franklin" which reminded her that she was suppose to tell me about her AR level. I feel like I live in a "If you give a mouse a cookie" book. If she sees Franklin, that will remind her about reading. If she reads, then she'll have to....haha, I love those books. Anyway, seeing this little turtle reminded her that her AR level went UP! Up! Up! She is now a 1.9-2.9. To know a year ago she could barely read ten sight words and there seemed to be no way possible she could ever read even the simplest of books....and now we are moving UP!! Wowza! It has been a road, and although sometimes I wish there weren't as many potholes as they are, it's been all worth it. I'll stop and change my tire from time to time, recharge, and we'll move on. Because she's speeding by us!!!
