I have gone back and forth on whether to blog or not to blog....
now admit we all said in our heads "That is the question"
I don't really have the time for it.. or shall I say I don't "make" the time for it...but when I get a wild hair thinking
Hmm..I should go look at that old blog of mine..
I LOVE seeing the old posts about my what was going on in my life..which was really the reason I started this blog in the first place...to keep memories...for a tool that my daughter could use to see what life was like back in the olden days.
This world is changing so quickly before my eyes .. I am sure that this world will be totally different by the time my daughter is my age.
Blogging has gotten so business minded.. money making... so commercial. I thought that I wouldn't add up because I don't ever want to go there. I don't want to sell out.. I don't want to be a "review" blog.. I want it to be MY blog. MY pictures. MY memories. told in MY voice.
So .. you will see to many dots (...) because that is me pausing to think. You will not see correct grammar, perfect English, or professional photos. You may find a misspelled word and you may come across a post with just a picture and no words, but it is what it is.
So welcome to the Brewers little space on the world wide web..I hope you grab a cup of good ol southern sweet tea, stay awhile and chat. It'll be nice to get to know you!
I am so proud of this girl. She has made my dream of motherhood the best reality possible.
On the last testing session at school Lyla scored at a Level 40 on reading. I just got a message from her teacher saying is the equivalent of reading at the end of the 4th grade year. Wow!!
I love that she loves to read! I pray her love for reading does not cease in the slightest. Every night we read a book before and even though she can read she likes for me to read it..but you better believe she is following along with every word.
Right now we are on our second round of reading The Wizard of Oz (which by the way is different than the movie).
Are your kiddos at reading age? What books do your kids like?
Yesterday right after a wonderful church service we went straight to the local fall festival.
The first both we stopped at was the face paint
Then we hit the bounce around and the games. We finished up with an amazing burger and went to the house to rest up for night church.
Great day! Great memories made!
Last night for All Hallows Eve 2014 Lyla went dressed up as Elsa from FROZEN. Suprised? There were approximately 658 other Elsa's strolling around..but I am pretty partial to mine, especially since I spent $30 on that dress thinking she might look a little different than every other Elsa...
Arkansas decided to have a cold front sweep in ON Halloween night so everyone was wearing jackets.
The $30 dress.. covered up.. most of the night!
Our town has a wonderful walking trail where all the groups from the High School set up "stations" and decorate them how they want...the kids walk along the walking trail and the High Schoolers just load thier bags up with candy.. It is absolutely wonderful! and safe!
The Cowardly Lion turned out to be Lyla's Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Kinslow. This was serioulsy the highlight of Lyla's night....and turned out to be mine as well. Mrs Kinslow told me she tested Lyla's reading level and she scored at a Level 10. Which was Chinese to me until she told me that they START first grade at a Level 6! Wow!! So now Mrs Kinslow is going to let her go to the library to check out her own books to read. Once she finishes reading that book she can take a test on it and then pick out another one to read.
Proud Momma Moment!
We had a big day scheduled..
First a field trip to Chuck E Cheese
Then cake and juice for snack time!
Here was our birthday attire....
At Chuck E Cheese every kiddo got around 60 tokens to play games with .. Lyla and Izzy.. played in the tunnels and this cage.. for free.. almost the whole time.
