Again, will get the pics developed soon! Maybe by then Sarah’s school pics will have been taken.
Hope my letter finds him well and healthy.
Sarah is doing good, she’s back in a youth group at Church. She’s missed two meetings but she gets up so early (5am) every day, it’s been hard to get her there, but she got upset with me so I have to make it a point to get her there the next meeting.
She’s doing real good in school, has to read 10 minutes a night as part of her homework and we have to fill out a reading log. She goes around saying “Mom I know what this says, or that says” She also has spelling every night and has to study her words for an at home trial test. She writes her words 3 times, uses 3 words in a sentence and then illustrates 6 words.
She loves Math, zips through it. She gets all her homework on Monday and does 95% of it Monday night. Her grades are real good. They range from A’s to C’s and once in awhile she will get a C- or D. She knows D’s are not acceptable and knows that she has to bring it up to a C- or C. She tries real hard and I have to praise her for that. We go over her weekly classwork so that she knows what her mistakes are for the next time. She’s a really good girl and tries really hard. She struggles with reading but not like she did in the beginning of the year. She wants to read in class and her teacher says Sarah gets upset if she is not picked to read.
Her health is good, she has a couple more loose teeth that she is anxiously awaiting to come out. At her dental appt she had NO cavities. The dentist told Keith that she is in an awkward stage with her new teeth coming in that every kid goes through, because the new ones are so big but her teeth are so pretty. They are big but they are straight so far. She actually looks like Anthony’s other two kids, more like her half brother, whom I have always thought Sarah looks more like.
She wants to be Dorothy for Halloween, is going to go to a Harvest party and went to a slumber party and didn’t cry. She has cried before when staying at a friends house or her stepbrothers house but this time she didn’t. She said “Mom, I won’t cry. When I stayed at (stepson’s) house, I was 5. Now I am 6 and my legs grew so I am bigger now. I won’t cry.” She didn’t cry. We had gone out with my sis and family and when I called to check on her, her friends mom said she was doing great, playing, laughing swimming, so not to worry.
Take care and God Bless him and his family.
