September Flowers

Our Flower among the flowers.

In the small field behind our house we get a gorgeous show of yellow flowers every September. But luckily we get to see our Flower every day of the year.

In other news, Siena is loving school. She can't wait to get out of the house every morning to go. She even loves riding the bus. The other day she told us that, she wish she could go on the weekends. She loves the social aspect of it for sure. She's always telling me about all the kids at school & what they are doing too. As far as the educational aspect....well she loves learning of course but Kindergarten is turning out to be just a review of her past 2 years of preschool. At times I feel I could have home schooled her to get more out of it. In fact we actually are doing a lot of that anyway. I've always done workbooks with her & still do & now we're working on time & money. She's been doing 1st grade math for sometime. I'm not sure what grade is doing multiplication & division but she's done a little of that too. The reading is coming along & the school has a reading program to get the kids to read more. We have to make a list of at least 24 books to read each month.

In October, there will be a testing of the Kindergarteners to see where they are, so I'm hoping this will put her in a more advanced group so that she doesn't get bored with the school work.
