Cubbie Night

Emily is growing up so fast. She is learning to read, and is looking forward to riding her bike without training wheels. Last night we celebrated her Cubbie Awards Night. She finished her Hopper Book and the Apple Tree. She got to receive her book 1 award and 2 special patches. We are so proud of her. Every week she looked forward to Cubbies every week and loved memorizing her verses, and learning more about God. She was very excited to get to hold the American Flag last night. During school we have to take turns holding the flag, So it is always exciting getting to hold our country's symbol of freedom. Afterwards she was saying that she had graduated from Cubbies and now will get to be a Sparky. Hannah is excited to get to have her sister with her next year.
This week Emily also started swimming lessons. She is an EEL. She and Hannah could not wait to go. Lessons at the YMCA here are different than the Y in AL. NO SWIM BELT! Emily did great and smiled the entire time.
Emily has such a zest for life. She loves having fun in what ever she does.
