We started our day out with a trip to Brother Darling’s doctor. DD wore the new dress I made her. She looked so cute. (She just needs a pair of those cute flip flops like SG and SB bought yesterday!) I’m really dreading the day that she becomes adamant about picking out her own clothes…and I know the day is coming!

After lunch we began working with our Hooked on Phonics program. DD just couldn’t wait any longer. The problem with DD is that she just doesn’t know when to quit. When she found out that she could get star stickers for reading, she refused to stop until she had read a book. Here is a picture of her chart with her first star.

She has already been asking about doing it again today. I told her we would start after lunch, so she’s been asking for lunch all morning!!!!

Last night was Kids’ Night at Chic-fil-a. DD and Spicy Girl had a great time. So did we. We were actually able to visit with Mommy and Daddy Spice without too many interruptions….that’s rare.

After dinner, we stopped by Target where DD enjoyed shopping for shoes. She seems to be attracted to the ones with heels and sparkles. Should I be worried?

Needless to say, she was exhausted by the time we got home, but she still wanted to read me a book or two. She read the first book in her kit, CAT.

Then she read her Cars book, Old , New, Red, Blue

I checked on her before we went to bed and she had her CAT book on her pillow, so I moved it and placed it back in the kit. At 3:00 a.m. she woke us up crying because her book wasn’t where she had left it. I DEFINITELY THINK SHE’S HOOKED ON PHONICS!

She's gonna be reading before no time! Awesome!! S.G. has just started getting picky about her clothes; preferably pink. I have been dreading it too because I have more fun picking out her outfit for each day.

We have got to get HOP and SOON! DD is too cute. Hooray for her and her reading. That is wonderful.

Hope you enjoyed this beautiful weather today.

Looking forward to next week!
