I can't believe how much my children have accomplished in the FIRST WEEK of the new year! All of my mommy friends out there know I don't like to brag about my kids, but I just HAVE to let you know what they've been up to.
Fortify is excelling at learning FIVE new languages. We all knew she wouldn't have a problem with it, I just can't believe how quickly it's coming to her. The other day she was on the phone with someone in CHINA telling them how to make an upside-down cake. (Can't wait for THAT phone bill!!! :) !! ;-)).
Aloe has been busy with his usual. We've had THREE recitals this week! 2012 is going to be a LONG year for THIS family! I would pull Aloe from a few of his musical groups if it wouldn't totally crush the groups to do so.
I've been a little concerned about Casper this week. While he did manage to make and sell his first Creme Brulee, he didn't apply himself in his studies this week the way I expect him to. On Thursday, for example, when I asked him to tell me the theme of each presidency in US history, when he got to Garfield he said, "civil service reform and radical republicanism." WTH!!?!?!?!?!!?!???! I don't know how he's going to manage preschool next year if he can't even get his history straight now. CAN ANY OF MY MOMS OUT THERE HELP ME WITH THIS ONE?????!?!???!?!?!?!?!???!! :(
Cider is learning to crochet, and BOY IS SHE GOOD AT IT! I'm not at all surprised. She inherited her mother's delicate hands but her father's fierce precision. Not to brag.
Opaque is still our little baby. We don't expect much from her around here! But being part of this family, as you can imagine, she still delivers! (Literally, actually. She brings our paper in in the mornings and then gives us the highlights when we're too busy running off to awards ceremonies to read through it ourselves).
Yes, I think 2012 is going to be a great year around our house! I'm so humbled by how impressive my five children are. So so humbled. Please join us in our exciting journey through 2012!
