I just loved Millie's colourful collage that I put on the fridge door.
She has settled in her Reception class very well. She especially seems to love Art and English.
The picture at the bottom of the post seems typical of much of her art work. She draws lots of friends holding hands and this picture represents her friendly nature.
She has a thirst for learning that is hard to describe.
Amber is also very good at reading and spelling. I find it hard to imagine her coming to England unable to communicate in English only two years ago. She has many friends and seems to be going to parties regularly. A real little all rounder.
My oldest grandson, Rick (who has autistic spectrum disorder) has now received a statement at school, which will mean that he gets 21 hours a week of extra help. He really needs this help as without it he tends to mess around and doesn't get motivated.
He is fairly intelligent and just needs to be guided, though his social skills are very behind average.
Dean, his younger brother, just loves Sam, my son, who he looks to as the father figure that is lacking in his life. He just won't leave him alone when he comes over from the east coast.
The two boys were here last week and they had such a good time when they all got together. The cousins spent hours on the wii in the attic and were no trouble at all.
I am so proud of all my grandchildren and they give me so much pleasure. Their photos are everywhere about the house.
