Hump Day

The kids and I each had a good day at school today. I worked in the library from 9:30-3, which I will be doing the rest of the week as well.

We had nothing going on this afternoon, so it was just a lazy evening. I tried to get Emma to work on her thank-you notes but didn't get very far after we started arguing about the way she holds her pencil. I don't know how she picked up this bad habit, but she holds the pencil with all of her fingers and we've been trying to correct it for quite awhile. Since Preschool actually. Her teacher has been trying to get her to hold it right as well by giving her some pencil grips that make you hold the pencil correctly. Apparently Emma has decided to start taking it off after her teacher walks away. I don't know how to get her to change. Eventually, when she starts doing a lot of writing, her hand is going to get tired very quickly with this grip. She is convinced that she CAN'T change and that she can't write very well that way. I have tried explaining to her that it will take practice, but you know Emma! She just wants to keep me on my toes.

Gage and Scott worked a little bit on Gage's Pinewood Derby car this evening as the race is this Sunday. His car looks really good and it was completely his own design. He drew the profile of the car on the block of wood for Scott to cut out and then decided how he wanted to paint it. I'll be sure to get some pictures when it is finished.

I can't even think of anything else to write. Oh, except that I enjoyed my sister Kysa's last comment on my blog "10 things I Love about Stacy:1.Always willing to be my therapist! 2.Makes the beautifullest cakes ever! 3. Great scrapbooker! 4.
