A Guest Post by a Proud Mom

Calliope with her Christmas gift from Anne-Marie that arrived today. Thank you Annie!
Today Calliope finally returned to school after being sick for the past week. She came home with her report card. She was graded as Advanced or Proficient is all subjects. This is what her teacher said about her:

"Calliope is progressing well in all academic areas, and has moved up into a higher level math group (advance 3rd grade). She is settling into classroom life, making friends and becoming more active in classroom discussions. She is a serious, thoughtful student who didn't miss a beat in transitioning into new classroom routines. Her presence in the  classroom is one of an experienced student who behaves as if she were one of the class from the beginning. She has been a joy to have as a student."

We are very proud. Keep up the good work Calliope.

Hopefully she'll get to work on her shopping bag this weekend as she has lots of homework to catch up on this week.

Stuff I Made (while I was getting better)

 These are a pair of valentine earrings for the market at school.

 Another pair.

 And another pair.

 This is one of the bears I made with my fused beads.

 And this is the first bear I made.

 This is my wooden unicorn that I coloured.

These are my Beatles Special Edition playing cards from Grandma and Grandpa. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa.
