Say What?!

Remember me writing about our computer problems? Well, the other day I turned the computer on to fiddle with it one more time before taking it to Best Buy for repairs.

Wouldn't you know it, it worked just fine! Hmm, OK... We never/rarely shut the computer off and just let it go to sleep mode. Apparently it just needed to be shut down for a while because after three days of being turned off, it works like normal again!

Now I can go back to my normal blogging. Like this totally adorable photo. Alena is just taking off in the reading and writing department. She will look at anything with words and try to sound them out. And she loves to draw and write. She's started to try and make books. I'll cut out paper and we'll staple them together. Then she'll draw pictures (mostly animals) and write their names.

Last night, she went off to her room for a while and came back with this... COMPLETE SENTENCES! I was beyond surprised and proud.

A fox can jump.
A kangaroo can eat.
A rabbit can eat.
We can eat.

And I can't forget to mention that my most beautiful, smart, and talented little girl also got all As on her first quarter report card! Proud mama right here.
