So much growing up has been going on in this house lately. I'm trying so hard to appreciate it and not let it pass me by, but it's all happening so fast and lots of times I'm just too plain exhausted to notice. Then the kids will do something that makes me realize how precious these young years are and how quickly they are going by. Who knows if we'll be doing these baby years again? I certainly don't - and there are no plans for the immediate future.
Anywho, I figured it's time to highlight each of my children and what they've been up to lately.
Maya is my absolutely amazing daughter who keeps losing teeth left and right. The tooth fairy is about to go bankrupt and I don't know how my can manage to bite any of her food. She is doing so well in school - I haven't figured out yet what her niche is because she's doing so well in everything. She loves to read and is going through books like crazy (I'll take recommendations if you've got em). Maya is in 3rd grade and her teacher said she is reading books at a 5th grade +6 months level. She loves to write stories and draw. But, she's not only good at reading and writing; She's really good at Math. She got her multiplication tables down and she getting pretty good at division too. She loves to sing and play the piano (that doesn't mean she likes to practice what I teach her for piano). She also loves to play whatever sport she can. She dominates the tetherball courts at recess (I witnessed her easily defeat a boy she was playing. I was so proud!) She just finished her very first season of basketball. She learned a lot really quickly and became a great defender for her team. She still loves soccer and is always asking to try new things. On top of it all, she is just fantastic as a person. She is kind and helpful and always tries to do her best. I don't know what her teenage years will bring, but for now she is a complete angel.
