Question: What is Laura talking about? Answer: Everything! Here are some mini conversations to put a smile on your face. I did my best to use Laura's exact words. She is learning so much English and doing such an awesome job.
Mom: "Laura, you talk sooooo much, do you ever stop talking?"
Laura: "I no talk when I'm sleeping."
Laura: "Why you no shave today? Mom, you have sharp legs-you need shave them!"
Laura: "What tomorrow is?"
Mom: "What day is tomorrow?"
Laura: "Yes, what day is tomorrow?"
Laura: "What Monday?"
Mom: "What are we doing Monday? We are going shopping".
Laura: "and what get?"
Laura: "Food! Oh, I like food!"
Last week Eric brought us home an invitation to the 8th grade awards ceremony. We were told Eric would be recieving an award. We were so happy to learn Eric not only received one award, but four! One award was for highest gpa in science. He also earned 598 pts out of a possible 600 on his science state exam. I think we have another scientist in the Hittle family!
Laura poses with her teachers, Ms. Kerry and Ms. Kim. Thank you, Ladies, for loving Laura and giving her a great first experience at school. You are appreciated and will me missed!
We put Laura in a Tues/Thursday morning 3 year old preschool program this year. Her teacher was Ms. Kim. Laura also joined Ms. Kerry's all day 3 year old program a few times a month. Laura is now 4 1/2 years old and has just about caught up in language to other 4 year olds. The teachers, staff and other parents have all remarked to me that they just can't believe how far she's come in just 7 months! We seriously have a gifted gal in language!
Laura is still too young for kindergarten in the Fall. We will have one full year of preschool next year where we look forward to learning more letters and sounds. I have the feeling Laura will do very well!
Laura loved the squirrel song! "Squirrel, squirrel, shake your bushy tail!"
