Five. It just seems so OFFICIAL. Phasing out of my at-home preschooler to a grown-up SCHOOL-AGE kid. She is growing and learning and changing and blossoming. She is ready. Hannah has a fantastic personality. She is easy-going, content, sweet, caring, and generous. If you come over to visit, she'll probably send you home with one of her toys or something she made. She's super into jewelry-making and is constantly making beaded necklaces and bracelets. She is a fantastic helper around the house but most especially loves to cook and bake with me. She knows her numbers, letters, letter sounds, many math facts, and can read lots of basic words. She learns quickly and is picking up a lot of things that Eli's practicing at school. And somehow she knows North-South-East-West like nobody's business! She is social and friendly, active and energetic, yet also loves to sit and look thru books or color and write. She's a free spirit and artistic, so she's the child who has the very MESSIEST room in the house, cluttered with jewelry scraps, notes, clothes, doll house pieces, or Barbie clothes. She loves skirts and frilly dresses, even on the coldest of snow days. Yet she's going to play spring soccer for the first time with Eli. So proud of our sweet girl. We love her to pieces!
