He Can't See Me!!


Tonight - we were in separate cars as we headed to Meron's volleyball game - and after they all loaded up - Laura took a pic and sent it to me...

Z-Dogg - not being able to lean from his harnessed position behind Laura - yells out:

"Hey! Wait! He can't see me!"
And to resolve the situation - he does what anybody would do under these circumstances - and extends his arm/hand as far out as he could!

Forgive the grainy cellphone picture - but too funny not to record!

Way to work it Zechie!

I see you, Z-Dogg... I see you!

"My Trip to Africa" by Mebbie


Tonight was the third grade spotlight at school and Mebbie was pretty pumped about it!

She had to make some tough choices to cut soccer practice short and miss the beginning of the school event - but we eventually made it there!

She was so excited to read me her narrative and show me the picture she drew to accompany it!


Her drawing went great with her story...

"My Trip to Africa" - by Mebbie

First, it took a long time to get to Africa. We had to take TWO planes! Next, when we got off the plane we went to a hotel place. Their food was so good, especially the eggs! They were nice and soft.

Then we went to an orphanage. It was fun because I met a really cute baby! She made my eyes light up!

After, I went to a school. It was so cool to see everybody learning. I loved to see them so happy because it made me smile.

Finally, now we have a school in Africa and it is called "Brighton Academy of Excellence!"
I absolutely love that Brighton Academy is in her thoughts and high enough on her list to make it to her first narrative story!


This girl is so creative, so thoughtful, so caring...

And I was blessed to spend the night with her at school seeing what she's up to.

It was like catching a glimpse of a future world changer at work!

Protect your heart Mebbie and stay AWESOME!

On The Grow


This little man right here is ON THE GROW!

And it's moving too fast for me!


Tonight he showed me a pretty detailed drawing he made of a sinking boat with him thrashing around in the water being eaten by a shark.

TERRIFYING...

But pretty darn good for the Z-Man!

Then he showed me how he could write out his FULL name!

Z-E-C-H-A-R-I-A-H

Super proud of my little learner!


Z-Dogg... you keep learning and keep growing buddy and you're gonna change the world some day!

Keep growing Z-Dogg... (but not too fast!)

Looking good Meron... looking GOOD!
