The whole third grade singing at there program. Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa Armstrong and Grandma and Grandpa Dootie for coming from out of town to see her perform. She was very glad you all came to see her sing. They performed it twice that day once at 2:30 and again at 7:00. Then Mrs. Young treated them to Christmas caroling and took them to see" The Prince and the Frog."
Laramie has had trouble in reading and math since the first grade. I have been asking all a long for the school district to test her for dyslexia. They didn't think she needed to be tested because she always improved over the year, and never fell back. Well this year I started off fighting for her again and after failing math and her self esteem was in the gutter. We had her in every help class she could be in I finally convinced them to follow through with the testing. Guess What? She has Dyslexia. Now they have pulled out all the special classes she was in and have put her in dyslexic classes. When I found out I was so happy and so mad at the same time because I think a lot of this could have been prevented. She has two wonderful teacher this year and she actually looks forward to going to school now. She told her psycolgist that she liked reading and math now. Which she has never said before. I asked her later why she said that "If it was because she understood it" or "If it because her teacher are helping her better". She said her teacher help her understand and take the time to make sure she gets it. Thia is something we have never had before. Yes, I feel she has always had OK teacher with one exception, but she really loves these two ladies and we have seen a lot of improvement.
We put up our christmas tree last week. The kids had fun putting all the oranments on the tree. Landon was really excited about putting the christmas tree. Landry wasn't sure what was happening but loves the lights. Laramie everything about christmas.

I'm a little late updating this. Landry is now seven months old and it's hard to believe. He started to sit up at 6 1/2 months. No teeth yet but I think they are on their way. He has been realyy drooling . He is a very laid back baby. He only cries if he is hungry or is tired.
