The Disney movie "Frozen" is still a huge hit with little girls. Dawson invited Grace to her "unFrozen" pool party yesterday. It was a blast!

It has been a busy 11 days since the last day of school. In that time Grace has gone to the pool, went on field trips to the movies and to Lake Farmpark, took a cooking class, saw a magician show, and went to vacation bible camp. Today, she participated in her first golf lesson.

It was a good school year. Grace ended the year at a DRA (reading level) of 24-28 which is a mid-2nd grade equivalent and her report card was perfect in all subjects. We know Grace is not perfect and she needs time to think and process new concepts, but we were pleased with the results of 9 months of hard work. She is reading chapter books (with a little help) and is independent in so many ways.
It is hard to believe how much she has grown since we took this photo back on the first day of first grade in August. Doesn't Grace seem so much older?

Grace and her friend, Brooklynn, went to a cooking class yesterday at a place called "Young Chef's Academy". They have classes for kids a few times per week where they teach technique, how to use different cooking tools and utensils, and safe food preparation.
They say that kids will eat a greater variety of foods if they help with the preparation. They made grilled calzones and chewy oatmeal raisin cookies. These two ate every last bite!
