Last night Liberty read her first book to me. It was one of those BOB books for beginning readers. She just pulled one out and started sounding out the words on her own. You should have seen the look on her face when she realized she was reading words…like a light when on for her. I get teary-eyed just thinking about it. After she read the book to me, she read it to Daddy. Then she had to Skype with Memaw and read it to her. We are so very proud of our girl. Now I wonder…how did that tiny new baby turn into a 5 1/2 year old who is figuring out how to read?!

Here is a pic of her reading the book to Daddy:


We are planning to start school with Libbs on Monday. She and Leila have been begging to be able to start their school work (we got Leila a preschool workbook), so we moved our start date up a week.

And just for fun, I’ll add a couple of pictures of some socks I just knit for a sweet friend’s birthday.


Gosh I love knitting!! I’m also finally starting to pull my sewing machine out again now that I have found a friend here who likes to sew. I had her and her kids over last week and our kids played while we each worked on our own projects. I cut out the squares for a rag quilt for Nadia.

That’s all for now. Blessings to you!

Yay Liberty! Isn't it magical when they begin to turn those letters on the page into words! I love it.

You are so crafty, the socks are adorable!
