Cassidee is in Kindergarten this year and is loving it. She has a fabulous teacher too. Cassee passed her goal of 30 sight words a few weeks ago. She's learning so much and loves to read with me. Her hearing greatly improved due to the little surgery she had done last year. Her speech has improved a lot too. A couple months ago it was Cassee's week at school to be spotlighted in her class. Her teacher sent home a poster that we were supposed to color and fill out. Some of the sections were name, family, favorite color, favorite food, etc. Then at the bottom it asked for what she wanted to be when she grew up. I asked Cassidee that question and she confidently said, "Queen". I said ok and wrote that down on her poster. I thought that was a typical answer for a 5 year old. A few days later I went to the school and chatted with her teacher. She commented that all the girls that had been spotlighted up until then had all said they wanted to be a "Princess". Cassee was the first to say Queen. What a clever little girl! Go straight to the top!!
Cassidee started Kindergarten this last Monday. She was very excited.
Here she is ready and waiting at home in the morning.
Here she is getting on Miss Elizabeth's bus.
This is Mrs. Lopez, her long term sub for one month.
And here's Mrs. Wagner, the aid.
Here she is at the end of the day. She had lots of fun and knows a couple of the girls in her class already.
Yeah for Cassidee.
A few days ago something crazy happened to Cassee. She was playing with Preston at Jill's house. They were on the bed downstairs. There was a laundry basket and a pillow. Preston did not push her. Cassidee did not fall off the bed. Yet, somehow she fell over the basket and landed on the bed and managed to break her arm! So now, tomorrow we head to the doctor's office to get a cast put on her arm. It will be water-proof, so hopefully that won't ruin her whole summer!
