I Heart Sugar

It's been a while since Sara Madalin and I got to spend an entire day alone together at home. This summer I attended class EVERY DAY so I didn't get to spend any lazy days alone with her. She went to Mrs. Gail's every day. It was a routine that she got used to and that worked well with her. Now that classes have started back where I teach, she continues to go to Mrs. Gail's every day. Even when I'm not working, she goes to Mrs. Gail's. Unless we have an appointment, or she has a class, as will be the case on Fridays soon, she goes to Mrs. Gail's. She is a child who needs the structure and routine of going every day. We (Reagan and I) have talked a little about schools for her (already) and we agree, she needs to continue to be somewhere that is relatively structured. She is so strong-willed and head-strong and CURIOUS(!!!). We feel that structure with her is a must. Getting up and going to Mrs. Gail's every day aids in creating structure for her.

All that to say, I got to spend a couple days with her this week. Tuesday she and I got to play and talk and cuddle all day. Tuesday afternoon I was looking for something to do to entertain her, so we went outside. AND, because I just don't have nearly enough pictures of this little stinker, I snapped a few.

She loves playing in the grass. It fascinates her.

Oh, how I love her.

Look at what's in her hand. Grass. Guess what was in her mouth right after I snapped this picture. . . Grass.

I love how her hair is so curly on top of her head!! She's going to have fun hair to fix!

I have found that my kids do better with a structured routine too. Seems to confuse them when we make exceptions.
