Oh Ella Girl, you are awesome. We attended your parent-teacher conference with your beloved Mr. H. You got straight A's in everything but more than anything you are kind and you give 110%. Just today, we learned you are reading at a fourth grade level. Squeal!!! We are so proud of you and your busy little brain.
We are also stoked at how you're finding your groove with Brownies. These little women are a full force of energy. We spent 4 hours at our zoo for a special event with other Brownies from our area. You earned two badges along the way.

Ella, you grow good babies. I know I have a lot to do with the behind the scenes work with our fosters, but it is your dedication and ease that makes these babies such wonderful beings. And so it goes that we were on a mission. We broke ranks from our 'fostering during summer break rule' and headed to the Humane Society a day after our big gathering. Our mission was to foster a litter of kittens so that GRANDMA AND GRANDPA COULD ADOPT ONE OF OUR BABIES.
|Barry, Leonard, Kevin and Snowie|
Snowie was chosen as THE one to become part of the family and boy did you ever kick into high gear on spoiling her.
You made your first pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Day, Ella and it was yumm-o!!

|A night out for just US.|
|The first of many years of this tradition.|
|Ahmen morning with these two!|
|Thomas, keeping it real.|
One of your biggest surprises for us was the book your second grade class did.
Today flurries blew around almost the entire day. Our first storm is going to blow through on Sunday. You will be ecstatic and will do your solid best to will a snow day for Monday.
