Ok so I haven't even posted a single blog in 6 months. Does that tell you how busy we've been? In that time, we've taken a trip to Maui, had Christmas, Isabelle's been skiing a lot, we've had Valentines and St. Patrick's day, Spring break camp, zillions of swim lessons, and then her Art Show last week. Oh and I have been in a removeable cast and crutches (until last week) for over a month due to a severe ankle injury.
But besides all of that, I realized today Isabelle is exactly 5 1/2!!
Wow. Every year really does fly by faster. No wonder we had to buy her
new clothes and shoes this week, as this girl is growing every day.
She is a reading maniac now zooming through her Bob books and spelling
out words on her own very well. She loves her friends dearly and gets
excited to play with them whenever she can. She has been swimming
independently for several months now and we are still trying to settle
into some new lessons to keep her going, since losing our gym a few
months ago. She blew us away with her waltzing with 3 handsome partners
at her Art Show- but her art is even more breathtaking. She loves art
more than almost anything. She recently read a book and couldn't figure
out what to do with the stickers that came inside. So she decided to
use them to create a "Scene Select" as she called it- where she drew out
various scenes from the book in different boxes. So creative and
