Things happening in the Anderson House

Life keeps on plugging along over here at the Anderson House. Lately, Kira has been working on her writing skills. I usually give her some examples and she repeats them on her own. It's great practice as she enjoys it.  This little easel she got from Great-Uncle Bruce and Auntie Cheryl  has been fantastic! She LOVES it and draws on it everyday. Here she is practicing her numbers. Numbers are kind of confusing so we were working on them this week.... 



And her results........ 

We  also did some sight words that she has been working on in pre-school. She focuses really hard and is doing such a fantastic job. She is really looking forward to school! We don't have her enrolled anywhere yet because we are waiting to see where we will be living. But once we know - we'll get her all set up.

Last Friday Kira and I went to the Shark Reef. I'm really glad we bought the pass. We both enjoy it alot. It's not very big and we get through it kind of quickly but it's still fun to see all the fish and enjoy them. My favorite fish is no longer there but there are still a lot of great things to see. Kira took all of these pictures so this is the Shark Reef from her angle. 




Her favorite part of the Shark Reef is the glass floor. It's funny to see adults so freaked out by it but Kira LOVES it. She runs across it, stands on top of it wishing for a fish to swim by. The fish don't really seem to like it down there but that doesn't really deter Kira from checking it out.

Here is a stuffed turtle she really liked!

Another picture from Kira .... Team Umizoomi. She loves to take pictures (I have NO idea where she get's that from at all, she said with an eye roll) and so for Kira, it doesn't matter what the subject is. So when I look at the pictures on my camera, I often see cartoons... 


And us... after dinner one night. She was adamant about getting a picture of me and Jacob together.... 


And Boppa, it's always so fun to see what she's coming down in sometimes. It's always some hair accessory or one of her princess dresses or a mix of her princess stuff. Today she is wearing a pair of jeans with a skort over them because she wanted to wear a tutu.......... LOVE IT! I don't really dress her anymore. I mean I haven't dressed her in years but I also don't pick out what she's wearing anymore either. I do have some say because I get to pick out clothes at the store but she get's to pick what she wears each day. She's looking forward to the warmer weather so that she can start wearing shorts and skirts again without tights.... Total Nevada girl... doesn't like the cold! 




And lastly a little something about what I have been up to. I went on a search to find a coat for a friend of mine that is moving to a colder climate. I was SURE I kept it when I passed some clothes on to my sister. And I was SURE I knew what box it was in. Well I was wrong. My sister does have it. I'll get her to mail it to me soon BUT as I went from box to box to box I realized I should have a better way of storing this stuff, especially because I read that cockroaches can eat through cardboard and clothes. So I rant o Target, bought 4 tubs and got all these boxes into four 18gallon tubs! It cleared A LOT of space in the garage and I'm pretty happy with it, knowing these clothes are a little safer.

Well, that's all from us for now. We hope you guys have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day. Even though I don't really celebrate it!

She's such a fun girl! I would be freaked out to stand on the glass floor, I think.
