It seems like an eternity since I have been able to sit down to just type a few paragraphs. We seem to be on the go a lot with ball games, Ranger and such. Even on the days we are overly busy Charli never ceases to amaze me with her responsibility. Each morning she thinks of Ranger first and the order in which she should get her morning started.
She feeds in the morning before school and at night. Unless it is raining, we would rather pick up the slack than letting her catch a cold. She did fall from a fence last week and scratched up her face and chest. The place have been healing great with the triple antibiotic cream until i noticed last night that her chest seems to be having an allergic reaction to the cream. She is broke out only over the side the scratch is on and not on her face which had the cream as well. Which is very strange to me.
I have now started giving her the responsibility of watering my flowers. When the weather becomes warmer we plan to work on a flower bed together. For some odd reason she is very ecstatic about pulling weeds. She is loving the farm life this season. I can only imagine how much time she will spend down the lane with the cows this summer.
She has been suffering from terrible growing pains recently. I guess since she is the shortest in the class, her body is trying to catch up before second grade. My MIL measured her last night and she has grown two inches since last summer. Her pains are mainly in her right leg and she spent the weekend limping. I pray that it continues to improve and we have no more sleepless night from aching.
Charli Beth has a week and a half left of school. I am so ready for this year to s over with but then again I really enjoy her teacher. I hate to loose such a caring, loving and wonderful educator for Charli. But I am excited over the accomplishments that second grade will hold.
