There is nothing better than the love of a child that is for sure! Today, Hailey colored a picture for me that had Danny, me, and her in it, and a note that said "I love you Jessi." She is such a joy! Hailey has always been really affectionate, but lately she has been climbing into my lap and hugging me freely. It makes me feel so good! Also, there have been times when she chooses to cuddle with me instead of Danny. Awesome!!
Hailey has struggled with reading a bit which has been a bit of a worry for us. Her teacher says she is not struggling enough to qualify for extra help in the reading room at school, but she is not quite where she needs to be. We work with her a lot at home, but Danny & I decided to enroll her in a special reading program through the school district. She will go on Tuesdays & Thursdays for one hour for 6 weeks. I think it will be very good for her, and hopefully will help make reading more fun for her. We all know how very much I enjoy reading, and as much as I love reading books to her, I want her to know the feeling of being swept away in a book the way that I can be.
Have I mentioned that I have the best husband in the world? Danny had a really crummy day today at work so when we got home, I told him to just chill while I made dinner. After supper, I was getting ready to clean up everything, but needed to take the dog out first. By the time I got back inside, Danny had cleaned up everything and had heated up the heating pad since my back has been bothering me. He is such a rock star! And he's going to watch the Bachelor with me tonight too!
I am so glad tomorrow is Friday! We are just having a low key family weekend - I think that's the best kind. I do plan on getting an Ipod this weekend though, so that will be pretty exciting!
I wanted to post some of my favorite pics from our weekend home too....I know there are a lot, but I love them all.
