Savoring the Moments

Okay, I can't let February completely pass by without posting, and since March starts in a few minutes I will make this quick.
We are loving life and enjoying every moment together. I know I always say it can't get any better, and then somehow it does. Abbey is starting to ask me questions that really make me think, and I am loving the new level our conversations are going to, yet we still have plenty of silliness thrown in. Best of all is sharing everything spiritually. I love talking with her about the things that really matter, praying together, and hearing her sweet songs about the Lord. I am wondering what people in the grocery store and other places think as she is singing her heart out about the Fruit of the Spirit, a Joyful Heart is Like a Good Medicine, etc. She has truly got the joy down in her heart.
Abbey is currently loving a game called Great States Jr. It has a timer and you have to quickly find states on the map. She loves it! She is also excited about collecting quarters for the 50 States.
Other things we are enjoying together include lots of good books. She's particularly into Aesop's Fables (and listening to a Jim Weiss CD of them in the car), DK's First Encyclopedia of the Human Body, and lots of books about how things are made or how things work. The librarians have given me some pretty funny looks as we come in with our usual, "We'd like a book on how _______ are made." She loved some we checked out recently that showed how tennis shoes are made and what it's like to be a textile worker. And speaking of factories, she asked me to stay out of hers for several days because she was working on this....

It was so sweet. She made it and wrapped it all by herself and then gave it to me. With the little resources she has she manages to make and give a lot of cards and gifts.
Here's the sign for when her factory is closed...

I told her the other day that maybe she can run a factory when she grows up, but she said no, she just wants to be a mom. She's also told me that she's going to be a teacher at a Christian school
and that I can stay at home and take care of her babies, which she wants to adopt from China.

She loved CNY, especially the Lion Dancers. We were both excited to see girls on the Lion Dance team this time.

This is Abbey's first real homework assignment, which was an All About Me poster for her preschool. It felt a little surreal to have a school project to work on over the weekend. I am sure it was a taste of countless weekend's to come. I love the way she draws herself with hair sprouting out of her head and shooting to the ground. And now for a slew of other projects...


A very weet calendar she made me for Christmas at preschool...
And finally a map she drew and dictated for me what to write as captions. Click on it for details.

We love making crazy requests to librarians too! Looks like you're having oodles of fun! She doesn't start kindergarten in the fall, does she?

Terynn said...

What a lovely, lovely life you two have. (happy sigh)

I feel so blessed to get to watch your little one grow up and to read what you share with us.

Miss Abbey is really getting tall, isn't she? Oh my!!

Jewels of My Heart said...

What a wonderful post!
And I love seeing that Jesus is right there with you!
Enjoy each moment...

Teresa said...

You are one amazing mommy! You have to be a smart one too to keep that little mind challenged! She is such a blessing.

Kolleen said...

It was so good to see an update...I check all the time. Abbey is just delightful. Every age has joys. I am enjoying how my 7 year old is growing up and becoming like a friend to me now and then. It is so cool! My 3 year old keeps me smiling as she runs the household pretending to be the mom. She says, "I'll be the mom." "You can be the dear." Love it! I love all of the artwork...might steal an idea or two for my K class. Have a marvelous March. I can't wait to see another entry!

Teacher Mary said...

Yikes, she is growing up by leaps & bounds! It is hard to believe you have had her more than 3 years (is that right???)!!! She is such a charmer & so full of life. I am so glad that she found that Jesus is the light of her life at such an early age--due to your influence! See you on Sunday, I hope! Lots of Love and Prayers--Teacher Mary

Kudo said...

Love seeing how much Abbey blossoming into a beautiful little girl with such a heart for God. She may need to be an art teacher as well. Great to hear you are both doing well would love to catch up some day.

Donna said...

A nice February recap! I love all the artwork. Gosh, we have a bunch of that in our house too (with two 5 year olds!).

Love the photo of you and Abbey!

I love hearing Abbey updates!

Colin and Jill Canada said...

I always said I wouldn't keep all the art work...just photograph it and throw it out. I haven't gotten to that stage though.

After seeing Abbey's art work, I'm not so sure about that. It's just too precious!!

Oh and I adore how she wants to be a mom and adopt babies from China. How special! Must make your heart swell with pride.

Jill

Hyperekplexia, restless legs syndrome, and parasomnia are also successfully treated with Klonopin.
