Savannah has had some pretty amazing teachers over the last 3 years at Calvary and each year when I think they can’t get any better they do. This year has been a whirlwind of learning and fun projects. She has been star of the week, Shared different chores such as line leader, lunchbox helper, chair stacker and my favorite on vacation helper which basically means you can sit back and relax unless someone is out..
As I said this year has been pretty awesome there are 7 of her classmates from last year that are in her class and of course her bff Lexi is there. One of the newer boys in the class is Devin. Devin has stolen the hearts of several girls in our class namely Savannah. She tell’s me all the time Devin is her boyfriend and she is going to kiss him when she get’s big. I’m thinking to myself already?? boys already?? Luckily Devin’s mom ROCKS and is very understanding of my dear daughters love for her son. haha..
Each day the kids break off in groups and play together Savannah and Alexis don’t get to be together in group because they are bff’s and play too much together or so I was told by miss Savannah. Last week Savannah came home and told me (with a dreamy look in her eye’s) that Devin was in her group and they played (Tangled) which if you don’t know is the updated version of Rapunzel from Disney. So I asked her a few more questions about her group and she happily told me “I was Tangled, Devin was Flynn Ryder & Alexis was the Horse.” I died but I also felt Alexis was getting the short end of the stick and asked her if Alexis wanted to be the horse and she said “YES” she did she was my friend” and trust me she is her BEST friend. They have been in the same pre-school class since they were 2 and Savannah LOVES her to death.. Not many days go by when I am not asked “well is Alexis gonna be there or is Alexis gonna wear that”.. They say if a friendship last 7 years then it will last a lifetime.. I am going to do my best to make sure she knows this little girl a lifetime.
Today at preschool Savannah came out SUPER excited. The Miss Robyn & Miss Lynn had given them a potion to help them create snow and it went a little something like this..
1. Put Ice Cubes in the toilet
2. Put a spoon (that they made in class) under your pillow
4. Sleep with the penguin Miss Lynn sent home
5. Put your PJ’s on Backwards.
I’m half kinda hoping it will snow because she will be so disappointed if it doesn’t.
Let it Snow Let it Snow
Oh and one more before I sign off Savannah has been learning about Indians at school this week.. When she sang this song and I replied aww.. they shot the buffalo and bears.. she said “it’s ok it was for their food”..
Today was parent teacher conference day with Charlotte Christian to see if Savannah would make the cut for Junior Kindergarten in the fall of 2014. I have to say I was a little nervous but for some reason I was relaxed. I have always felt that God has great plans for Savannah and that maybe why the calm overcame my nervousness.
Not only did she do well in her assessment she did EXCELLENT. They said that academically she would be ready for Kindergarten but tires quicker and there are a few things that with age she will catch onto.. with that in mind she will be headed to Junior Kindergarten.. So Savannah will be a member of the Charlotte Christian Knights Class of 2028!!
I think she is excited to start this new Journey too!!
Ready For Junior Kindergarten
Just a little conversation between Savannah and I.. Obviously daddy has been telling a few extra stories at bedtime.
Savannah how was your day today?…
It was good we had computer and science class..
Oh that sounds like fun..
Yea and I told them the story about you and daddy..
when daddy saw you at the restaurant.
What story’s that? who did you tell?
Daddy said he came into the restaurant the first time he saw you and you walked up to him and he couldn’t breath cause you were so pretty. Then he kissed you at the wedding. I told Miss Robyn & Miss Lynn.
I can’t believe it’s already 2014. It’s amazing how fast time flies. Now when you are in it…. Sometimes it goes a lot slower than you want but Looking back at all the special times I’m so thankful for the drag from time to time.
With the new school year come parent teacher conference. Now this is something new to me. Although I tried not to stress too much I have to say I was a little nervous shhh.. I mean after all she does have me as a mom and let’s just say school was not my forte. But luckily for her it was her daddy’s. When I first found out I was pregnant I was talking with my friend Meg Moore and she told me about this prayer she always prayed for her son “dear God please give him wisdom, health and faith in God” and her son has turned out pretty amazing. I knew too, as my pastor always says, “if you have a praying mom your toast”. I soooo pray she’s toast because from that moment on that was my prayer. Ultimately it’s in Gods hands but he puts us here to guide them. He gifted them to us for that purpose. And I’m so lucky that I have 3 gifts.
So Tuesday was parent teacher conference day for me. I signed up early because I’m anxious lol. Aside from talking a little too much (which she gets from me) and being a little to impatient (which she gets for her dad) she is doing AWESOME!! I couldn’t be more happy with her progress and evaluation!! I’m so proud of her I could bust.
Looks like my prayers are working!!!!
