1st grade program

Shaelyn had a special 1st grade program yesterday. Parents got to come and have lunch with them. Here is Shaelyn showing me some of the stories she wrote throughout the year.

Here is Shaelyn and her teacher. She was chosen to read her paper on God is.. They write one faith paper every year then it is given to them at 8th grade graduation.
Here is what she wrote.
God is everlasting. God is one out of three. God is the Holy Spirit. God is watching over me. God sended Jesus to die for our sins to be forgiven. God made our world! God made patterns. God is whom all things belong. God is great. God is mighty. God is powerful. God is taking care of me.

We were seated at a table with all of her best friends.
Shaelyn is right next to Meghan, across from her in orange is Kennedy
and Jacquelin is across from Meghan. Mrs. Folkema arranged for friends to
be by each other.

Playing outside after lunch with her friends.
She had a great 1st grade year and made some wonderful new friends.

Look who can see!

Look who got new glasses today and is actually able to see now. Shaelyn's teacher told me that she was having trouble seeing the board so we went to see the eye dr. on Friday. They must have done an express order because they were in yesterday.
Her vision was 20/200! Pretty pitiful. I really was hoping for her sake that our family's genes didn't rub off on her but apparently environment is all it takes around here to need glasses. So here she is and able to see much better.

Shaelyn's Best Cousin!

Shaelyn wrote this little book about her favorite cousin - guess who; Halle.
Here's the cover - My cousin, Halle

Here is what is written on this page.
My cousin is the best all because she gave me LPS (littlest pet shop) all just
because she never played with them!

She wrote this book the week after spending the whole spring break with Halle.
These girls just love each other so much and never seem to fight or get sick
of each other. They have such a special relationship.
