My Star

This whole job thing sure does get in the way of me posting about my sweet little dear.
Quinn is adjusting WONDERFULLY to her new routine and loves her school. She comes home everyday with fun little stories, wonderful jokes, cute new songs and an even stronger self-esteem.

Quinn was nervous the first few weeks. She was worried that she wouldn't make new friends or that she would miss me too much. Well, she has made lots of new friends and while she does miss me, she is growing up and it is a part of life. Don't get me wrong, there has been some drama with Quinn having to learn to share toys, time, attention... but all in all, I'd say it is an exciting new chapter in our lives.
Quinn's school is great. They give us a daily report card on everything from Quinn's listening skills that day, her attitude, and even the length of her nap! They give her homework almost every night too. At first it was simple coloring assignments where she had to follow the directions. Now she is doing writing assignments! They have bible stories and lessons twice a week and they pray before lunch as a group. Quinn is really enjoying all of the play time and circle time. Her teacher even wrote on one of Quinn's report cards the other day about how she was her best student and always paid close attention during learning time. Ms. Noelle also said how Quinn is so eager to please and eats up anything that she teaches her.
My girl loves learning and she was even the Star Student this last month!!!!If you can't read it-
Quinn's favorite color is brown.
When she grows up she wants to be a chef.
Her favorite activity is recess on the playground.
And lastly, her favorite food is carrots?!?!

I am so thankful for this girl. I honestly can't imagine my life with any other kid. I must have done something right for the Big Man Upstairs to give me such a happy little angel to call my own.
