A Little Surprise

Katya finally got to go back to school on Wednesday (with a two hour delay)! She cried sadly when we first told her she would have school today, and kept signing, "NO! NO!" while big fat tears rolled down her cheeks. But after some cuddling and explanations from me, she was finally resigned, went off and had a good day.

We sure were thankful Katya was able to go back, because right soon after she was at school, the rest of us had to take off for Charity's violin lesson. Her previous teacher and wife were in the area visiting family. Since the previous teacher's father is now currently Charity's violin teacher, her former teacher and wife came along to the lesson to see all their old students again, so it was a happy reunion! Since we hung out together for several hours visiting, it would have been much harder (maybe impossible) to do that with Katya.

So today while cleaning up Katya's "scrapping corner" (a weekly job) we found the following papers! We sure were surprised because we did not know the school was even trying to teach Katya how to count by 10's, but when I picked Katya up, I showed her one-on-one aide the photo and she looked surprised but also very pleased and said yes, they are working on teaching her. "She's smart!" exclaimed the aide. Yes, I think so too. ;-)

Lovely numbers! I also like the orderliness of both the evenness of the size of the numbers, and the nice layout! A sign of an ordering mind! And, that's what education is all about!
