My girl


This weekend was filled with soccer games and I'm proud to say I think Abby is finally getting the hang of teamwork. FINALLY the tears weren't flowing as freely (they still flowed a little but she at least bounced back and continued to play). See my daughter is very competitive and very hard on herself. I know where she gets the hard on herself (thank you to me!) but the competitive thing has me stumped. My hubby, Jay isn't competitive at all and well I can't stand to be in the limelight so trying to succeed in sports is not really my thing either. We've been talking to Abby explaining that scoring goals isn't the most important thing (in an U5 team anyway) but being supportive of your team mates and trying your best is. This weekend she was high 5-ing her team mates & clapping for them when they scored. She got outplayed by the other team a couple of times (this is where the tears came into play) but she stopped crying and kept trying and guess what she scored numerous (she'd tell you it was 8) goals. I was very proud of her. Hopefully each week it will get better. Unfortunately for me, I charged my camera to take pictures of her soccer games but then forgot the camera. Oh well maybe next weekend...


But I do have some pictures to share. Abby just missed starting Kindergarten in Kansas by 5 days. So she is now going to a 5 day program at a preschool. Her teacher in Memphis was so wonderful - she had Abby writing, learning her sight words and doing some really awesome projects. Here it is a little different. Not near as much writing but still good. I can honestly say I really miss Mrs. Levesque though!! She helped Abby so much!

Here are two pictures of Abby on the first day of school.





Isn't she cute??? And look BUTTERFLIES on her shirt...if anyone knows my daughter she would know that she is absolutely in love with butterflies!! Her room had to be pink, purple & blue with butterflies. And guess what? Mommy obliged :) I'll have to show those pictures sometime!

Okay, trying to explain what I meant on the phone.
If I wanted to leave a link to a card I made normally it would appear like this on the comment section: http://dannisdreamscrafts.blogspot.com/2008/09/flutter-by-wednesday-26.html

But if you do it in your new post section (just don't post it) and edit the html then copy it and paste it here, it will look like this (hopefully this works) My Flutter By Wednesday Card
