The funny thing is that in only the 2 weeks she's been in school, I've already seen great improvement in her drawing! I can't draw for the life of me, so this is something I didn't ever work on with Raya. I figured soon enough she'd figure it out lol.
Well, she did, and apparently one of the teacher aides in her classroom is quite an artist!
For the few first days of school her drawing were pretty typical of what's she's always done---mostly scribbles...
|Her drawings started getting better! I was thinking the aide was doing a pretty good job teaching them how to draw *real* pictures!|
|And now, after only 2 weeks, this is how Raya's drawings are looking....I'm pretty impressed. A sun, clouds, flowers, grass, and she even wrote her name. Good job Raya!|
In other news, Raya is going to start soccer next week...she's pretty excited! We got her bright pink socks and shin guards :-P The season had already started and I was going to wait until next year, but then one of the mom's of a girl in her class said their team was short a player, so they let us sign up late. I have no idea how many games they play....all I know is that practice is on Mondays and games on Thursdays. Hopefully she gets to play a least a few games, since we signed up late and missed a bunch of practices already. My understanding is that at this age they just kinda run around and randomly kick at things, so I think Raya will be fine ;-)
Also, here is my facebook update from last night....too cute! :
(Driving home from Grandma's tonight...)
RAYA: hey, the moon is following our car!
ME: yes, sometimes the moon does look like it's following us
(A couple minutes later...)
RAYA: Oh no Mama, go back! The moon forgot to turn!
Lastly, it's finally FALL WEATHER here! Today the high is supposed to be 69...the windows are open and I'm loving it! We've had unseasonable HOT weather lately, with highs hitting 100 degrees---yuck. So this taste of fall is great.
Today the girls got to break out the first of their fall clothes. Raya's dress is from H&M (did you guys know you can shop H&M online now!?) This dress I bought used though...I love it!!
|I found Brielle's Tea Collection dress at the local consignment store.|
Have a great weekend everyone!
