I'd like to share the last of our pictures from our New Years trip to Atlanta. We spent our final day playing with Gabi's best friend, Martin.

After lunch, Gabi played at Martin's house while I packed up the car and cleaned our house.

We miss you!
Gabi is also really into math skills now. She is adding single-digit numbers and able to compare bigger and smaller numbers. One day she was reading a book with numbers and I heard "twenty-one-teen, twenty-two-teen" as she continued to count past the twenty that they learn in school. So today I bought her a pre-math workbook, a beginning phonics workbook, a four-year-old handwriting workbook (since she loves to write letters), and a word-puzzle game (spelling three-letter words) to do during afternoon quiet time. She selected the math one for today, and it was a hit. She talked me into letting her do the first five pages, although I was initially only going to do two a day.
