The Little Princess

We embraced more change today. An adorable little lady joined us for a day of school and fun.

Before she arrived, we had a family chat about how much fun we could have with another little girl in the house and the kids kind of like the thought of having a sort of.....little sister, since they've never experienced that! Especially the boys.

We had a great day. Levi took Vickie under his wing and treated her like a little princess all day. He joined in on playing the game with her letters flash cards and had her just cracking up with his little antics. He showed her all of his favorite places in the woods, holding her hand to help her over fallen branches and trees. He played ball with her, shared his favorite math and reading DVD's, colored with her, and the two of them did a lot of laughing together. Natalie and Christine got out their childhood collection of dolls and all of the accessories, and Natalie spent time playing dolls with her for a while. Vickie was Natalie's side kick while she practiced her piano, and after lunch, while Vickie napped, I got a great workout done, and helped Noah and Levi with multiplication flash cards and the newest concept they are learning which are the basic steps of long division.

It has been a productive and fun day.

When Vickie was ready for her nap, I told her she could sleep in the same chair my grandson sleeps in. It's a big, cozy, soft chair with a matching ottoman. As she snuggled down with her blanket and pillow, she said: "you're my best friend!" Melt. My. Heart. What a cutie!

All cozied up for a math DVD together. It was rather chilly and wet outside today. I think they were ready to warm up and enjoy some easy, fun, education after playing hard out in the woods.

Change is good. Life can get dull if we don't add in some changes now and then. The recent changes we have made to our daily routine are good. There is more peace in the house and the productivity level has increased nicely. Adding a cute little lady to the mix just spices things up a little and I think we all enjoyed that today.

How about you?  Are you ready to make a few spring time changes?
