My Philanthropist
Such a loving young lady!

Bennyfoo helps with the counting

Little Jia
Hard at Work

Well it is that time of year again, Katie has begun the Teens for Jeans drive at Flanagan High School. She has 110 pair so far! She doesn't think she will get as much this year as she feels everyone probably cleaned out their closets last year. She just put a Facebook message out to all the students at her school (don't even ask me how she did that). Now she is starting to pile them up in her room, at which time it resembles Anna's room on a good day and I refuse to go in there!

On the Jia front, she had a lot of homework tonight, they are starting to add and subtract two digit numbers which means "carry the one" ugh, I hated that, but she likes Math. Her teacher is also starting to concentrate on grammar so she usually has a page of that each night. She read a whole chapter book this weekend. They have a reading log and have to read everyday and turn it in at the end of the month.

I don't know about you, but when I was young (a million years ago) you went to school, came home, had a snack and went outside to play kickball.

Jia has a little fort set up underneath her princess bed, lots of Barbies, Barbie airplanes, books, games, etc.

Jia also lost another tooth tonight, it is not a big deal for her, she jumps out of her Princess bed, brings it over to me and goes back to bed. With Anna and Katie there was wiggling for days,tears, blood and lots of drama....
