School and more

Well, the girls have been in school for 2 weeks now and they both love school.

Bryanna has had homework almost nightly since she started (she is using the A-beka program at Faith Baptist). She is delving into new territory - her science is on "matter," her history is American History, and she is in pre-algebra. She has joined drama again; they have just gotten the Christmas program and parts will be decided shortly. She loves being in school - yes, she is very much the social butterfly! Bry is not doing volleyball but will do basketball when the season starts in a few months.

Torrie has been enjoying her class with new friends also. Her day is packed with many different activities and she does have "free" time where she can decide what center she will go to. Torrie also has a small playground that she has been on and she enjoys the water and sand boxes. Her teacher is a blessing with helping her by handing her materials for Torrie to see up close and also remind Torrie "thumb up" when using Dora, her cane.

Both girls are doing well in their schools. Torrie celebrated her birthday there, and this year, Bry will be celebrating with a goodie (there are 2 other girls who share her birthday).

This coming weekend (Sept 11-13), Bry will be going to Rock the Universe at Universal Studios. She is going for the 3 days with one of the moms from the nursery. Bryanna cannot wait to go and enjoy the parks and the concerts! I would love to go, but at this point, it's not going to happen. Maybe next year!

Torrie's 5th Birthday!!!!

Enjoy Torrie's 5th Birthday! (click passed the 2 promos and turn off music at the bottom far left).

Torrie enjoyed donut holes at school with her friends. She then had Grampa & Auntie for cake and presents! Then goodies from the Leons! She made out very well with a doll, magna-doodle, t-shirts, night gowns, Ariel the mermaid and a Princess backpack (she hasn't taken it off yet)! It is hard to believe she has been home 3 years on August 25th!
