Minding Our P's and Q's...

Time is quickly flying by, and I seem to have less and less time for blogging these days...One of the reasons I have a little less time is because of the pretty little girl in the picture above!  That's our granddaughter, Madison, posing for a photograph, immediately after arriving home from school one day. I usually pick her up from school on Tuesdays, and sometimes she's dressed so cute I have to take a picture!

Anyway, Madison's pre-school class is learning to form the letters of the alphabet, and some of this has been a bit difficult for Madison.  That's where this MiMi comes in.  I worked in first grade for 15 years, so I've had lots of experience with teaching handwriting!  Maddie's mom asked me if I'd be willing to help Madison with her handwriting.  The prospect of helping Madison was a win/win situation for me.  First of all, I'd get some one-on-one time with Madison, and second of all I'd be doing what I love best--teaching!

It was slow going at first, but Madison and I seem to have hit our stride now.  She's improving with every session, and she and I have a good time playing a game of her choice afterward.  That girl loves to play games--and if I don't watch her, she'll try to cheat! Ha Ha

So, the next time you hop over here for a visit, and you don't see a recent post--I just might be helping Madison with her p's and her q's...or her b's and d's!  Or we could be in the middle of a game of "Candyland" or "Who Stole the Cookie".  Fun times for sure!

I'm so glad the two of you get some one-on-one time and I can't think of a better teacher for Madison. :-)

I know Maddie loves your undivided attention just as much as you treasure one-on-one with her. She is becoming quite the little lady!
