2nd Semester {Pre-K}

Nora loved her first year of school! She went everyday for 1/2 a day. She loved school, her teachers and her classmates! I would say it was a smashing success!

During the 2nd semester she earned 2 Broncho Brands for being a caring friend and a very big helper!

She also learned a ton this year and has developed into a little reader. She completed all of her sight word lists and while they don't come super easy we did learn she is quite the hard worker. She practices diligently until she reaches her goal! She was so excited when she was given books to read and she was able to read them! We are so proud of how far she has come and all of her hard work!

If you've been reading here for a while you know Nora loves all things arts & crafts. Here's a peek at some of her Pre-K creations:

Sawyer actually made this, but it's a sweet note for Nora

This is Nora's glitterpaintasaurus, which is a great representation of her art as she is a master of mixed media ;) She used paint, markers, glitter, stickers (creatively used as adhesive for the pipe cleaners, pipe cleaners and modeling clay (for the face and hair).

6 months @ 8 months

Consider this a 4th child's a peek at Evy's 6 month pictures that kept having to be rescheduled until she was 8 months old ;)

I was just going to show you a few, but I couldn't help post them all! Pictures were taken by Bethany Bond Photography.

Cartwheels, Headstands & More

Nora chose gymnastics as her winter activity. She loved going to the gym each week! She learned a lot and improved enough to be promoted to the next class (probably won't be back until next winter :(

Here's a look at her skills:

I don't know if it's because I'm getting older or because she is the 4th (and final) child, but this girl brings me (really everyone she encounters) so much joy!

She is the child we didn't know we wanted, but who we desperately needed.

She is the calm in our storm (because having 4 kids and renovating a house feels like a storm at times).

Her siblings are her adoring fan club and they literally cannot get enough of her.

We are all cherishing and savoring the babyness of our baby.

And those arm rolls slay me!

It's exhausting always being the center to attention ;)
