This afternoon Lucia, Rose and I went ice skating. Rose and I went for a walk yesterday and enjoyed playing on the ice, so we paid another visit today with Lucia. Lucia made a lot of progress on the skates and Rose enjoyed playing on the ice in her shoes.
Rose’s class had a music concert. The first grade sang four songs, which took about 20 minutes. It was great.
Lucia and Rose are both preparing for their First Communion this year, which starts with First Reconciliation. They attended this morning, with Susan. Both girls were excited to go and enjoyed the whole experience.
Rose lost another front tooth.
It was a beautiful afternoon today, so Susan, Rose, and I went for a nice walk around the neighborhood. Rose wanted to make this nature art down by the creek.
Not sure why this picture was taken, but it is a suitable time to post about the school year is going for Lucia and Rose this year. It is going well. We never pushed reading much with our homeschooling and we knew they would have a lot of catching up to do. They were both barely reading before the school year started. A couple of months into it, they are doing great. They each work with the reading teacher at their school and we can see their tremendous progress and some of the new techniques they are learning.
Today was RACE Day at Lucia and Rose’s school. RACE stands for Race Around Crossroads park Elementary. Lucia ran about 2.5 miles and Rose ran about a mile, with Susan and I joining in. Both girls ran well and had a lot of fun.
