Mouse has three more weeks of school to go before the end of the year. It's hard to believe she will be finished with kindergarten soon. I am not ready for first grade! Mouse is not sure she is either, although I am sure she will do fine. This past week, Mouse was honored with an award for her writing. I couldn't be more proud. Just eight months ago it was an epic battle (tears and all) to get her to practice writing her letters, and now she is writing four sentences a day with little encouragement.
It has been a lovely Memorial Day Weekend here in Southern California. We took advantage of the good weather and visited the botanical gardens at the local university. We also too part in setting out the flags at the local national cemetery where the soldiers are buried in honor of Memorial Day. It was quite a sight, seeing so many people come together to honor the fallen. Every grave receives a n American flag. Today the West Coast Thunder will be riding through town, Hundreds to thousands of motorcyclists to honor the fallen soldiers. Mouse is busy working on a project for her Girl Scout sisters: making photo frames to give them all as a gift at our last meeting of the season. What are you up to this weekend?
