His Mercy

"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"

A Thought

In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis

Faith

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Six Months

Today marks 6 months  since I went to get Alli.  What a great milestone!  Alli is doing so well.... I am really proud of her!
Today was also the first time she took a test. She was so worried about taking that test and even said I was a hard teacher! :)
Guess what?  She passed her test with an A and even did the bonus question!
We have spent 2 weeks now on phonics and early reading.  I cannot believe the improvement in her reading already!  She has been doing short vowel sounds with 1 letter added... such as  ba be bi bo bu, then ga ge gi go gu, and so on.
We mix short and long depending upon the symbol.  She has gotten quite fast at it, as opposed to before where she was guessing all the time.

GOOD FOR YOU MISS ALLI!
