100th Day

Zach celebrated his 100th day of school on Monday! He brought in 100 playdoh dots for his project...

...if we counted right. :-)

Matt, Emily & I met with Emily's teacher this evening for a parent/teacher conference. Emily showed us some of her recent work. She is doing a great job in school! Both Emily and Mrs. Raymond agreed that Emily could improve her spelling. A lot of the time, it is just a matter of Emily being in a hurry and not checking her work. It also has to do with my children not inheriting my spelling skills!

That's a good idea! I'm glad Emily is doing so well and everyone had a fun Valentine's Day. It seems like this year is flying by, already! Kate looks so cute in her dress. I bet Zach can't wait for his birthday!!

Ugh, I feel Emily's pain. People tease me all the time for being a grammar nazi but really, it's to make up for my lack of confidence in my spelling. I really got screwed over: my dad's and engineer and my mum's a spelling wiz. I suck at both.

I will say, one thing that has helped me is reading. Now my spelling is actually pretty good--much better than most people I would say--but it's because I read so much.
