Grade 1 has flown by. We are only left with a few more days!
Little Miss has done very well in Grade 1. Of course I was worried about her doing Grade 1 while still very young, but given how well she has done and how well she has adjusted, I think we did the right thing!
She loves school!
She loves her friends!
We actually want to move her to a nearby school, but she does not want to budge! (It would make it much easier on us in the traffic!) I hope we can persuade her next year!
She has made new friends! That's a big one for us! She had the one friend that she loves, but who was always putting her down, and who influenced her moods. She is playing with new friends that are good to her, and she enjoys their company. She is even playing with friends in our complex where we stay, and can't wait to get home at night!
She does her own thing when friends are around, and disappears at playgrounds and parties! We are finally at the stage that we can drop her off at a party! (Yay!!)
I am still reading articles about the strong-willed child in trying to understand our Little Miss a bit better! She has very strong ideas, and she will defend it for dear life! There are some things to disagree about, but some things we have to examine our own thoughts about it.
(Sometimes we have outdated parental mechanisms that kicks in when confronted with a very opinionated little girl!)
She has done well in most of her extra-curricular activities as well this year! We will be continuing with the ballet and gymnastics, as well as tennis next year!
The CMaths has been a challenge, and maybe we can let it go... It's a struggle to get her to do the extra maths homework each week...
We love the Girl that is emerging, and the Personality that she is.
I am so glad that she is in our lives!
It is especially great to get little love notes from her, writing that she loves her Mom and Dad!
It is passing too fast!!
