Life is good.

Sometimes when things are going well  it is easiest not to stop and think about just how blessed you are. This year has been really, very wonderful to our family. I can’t remember the last time I did an update on Miss Greta…

Right now, Greta is at that age where she is really able to enjoy all things summer; swimming, hopscotch, soccer, smashing bugs, sidewalk chalk, catching caterpillars…you get the idea. She wants to be outside all of the time and when we are not outside, she pretends she is at a water park and makes water slides all over the living room. The slides aren’t too exciting though, as she makes them with couch cushions!

Greta is very interested in learning as well. She will start home school in the fall and asks me every day or so when we can start “Mommy school”.  She is getting very good at writing and loves making our grocery lists when we just need a few items. We have started reading chapter books at bed time. We are reading the Junie B. Jones books, which I sometimes have to “censor”. I giggle saying that, but the books do use the words “dumb” and “stupid” quite often. I think we’ll try to keep her from making those regular words of choice. After all, she is only 4.  She has many years ahead of using them 🙂

She is affectionate and crazy all in the same breath. And she is still a little peanut, weighing in at just over 30 lbs..

Don’t worry, she’s prissy as ever! She is extremely interested in nail polish and still spends most of her days dressed in her princess dresses. Now, she is all about getting married. I have heard her propose to at least 3 different people (so what if one of them was Miles). I’m pretty sure she thinks that in order to get married, all you have to do is dress up and dance.

I am so in love with my little girl.

I think we are due for a girls day out :o)
