The Princess Proclaims.....
"My mind went on vacation but now it's back!"
"Mom, when I grow up, I'm going to be a Princess Ballerina Fairy Mermaid Astronaut."
"Mom, I'm really sad right now. I wanted to marry Prince Eric. I want to have a real baby. I want to fall in love."
"Mom, I love learning about God and singing about God. Everyone needs to learn about God!"
"Mom, when we say I Love You to each other, it makes my heart sing!"
"Dad, I have to tell you something. Did you know when you eat, your ears wiggle?"

A girl can never have too many Dora bags!
Jolly The Walrus and the twin of a frog my mom sent earlier. My mom said this frog was missing his sister so he hopped into the box. E thought that was hysterical!
What little girl doesn't like play masks and jewelry, bandaids for her|
dolls and more crayons to color with?
As usual, E was thrilled...and thankful...for the gifts her grandma and her grandma's friends send her. She had to call my mom right away and thank her and then it was off to draw her grandma a pretty picture with her new crayons and play with all her goodies.
Thanks Mom! You made E's day!!

It's so awesome to see my daughter worship God! It is my fervent prayer that she would love Jesus as much when she is 12 and when she is 20 and when she is 80 as she does today!

After Swiffering, and folding the bath hand towels and wash cloths for me, it was time for some fun. The other day I gave E an easy Word Search to do and she was hooked. We have a coloring book from Animal Planet that has all kinds of, well, animals (pretty smart, aren't I?) in it, but also Word Search puzzles in it. So E and I spent some time doing two Word Search puzzles.

She has this thing about not wanting slimy stuff on her hands. This from the same kid that will play in the mud/sand/dirt outside, but inside, forgidaboutit. When we baked cookies the other day, she got butter on her hands and was not happy. I calmly told her to just wipe her hands on the towel. Today, she didn't want to put the butter in the bowl because "What if I get butter on my hands?" I told her "E, just" and before I could say anymore, she said "I know, I know. Just wipe my hands on the towel." LOL
So, here she is making her long-awaited brownies.

Here's what else we have been up to:

We are moving onto letter D in preschool. Some of the letters we are going to be moving through quickly as she does already know the sounds for most of the letters. The vowels, and other letters that have more than one sound we are spending a few extra days on. I am making some adjustments to what we actually cover, and how we cover it, so it is a learning process for both of us. E is still enjoying it, and we are spending lots of quality time together, so overall this is a great thing.
I think the turtle park will be in the plans for tomorrow. Oh, that reminds me of something cute. E told me one day after coming home from the turtle park with her dad that they play tic-tac-toe at the park and she would show me how to do it if I went with them. Well, I told her that I could play it with her right now and she couldn't believe it. I got out some paper and drew a tic-tac-toe board and we played several games and now that is ALL she wants to play these days. It is so fun to see her little mind trying to figure things out. I wish she could stay this age forever!

These items are all gently used and we are thankful for my mom and her friends for thinking of Emma and looking out for items they know she would like. Thanks again Mom!!

We are having a few days of cooler weather which is very welcome. We have been over 80° pretty much every day since May and most of the summer was near or over 90°. Don't get me wrong, this is why we moved down here, but it is nice to have a few days break. It will be back up near 90° for this weekend, so still plenty warm enough to go in the pool in the afternoon (which we did today).
My husband took E to the "turtle" park today. She has really been looking forward to it and enjoyed the one-on-one time with her daddy. The park is usually "their" thing to do together. They don't go often in the summer due to the temps but soon they will be heading their most every day.
We are making chocolate chip cookies in honor of our letter C today. E loves to help me out in the kitchen.
Getting ready to make Chocolate Chip Cookies!
