school news~

Izzy's been a little stuffy the past few days, but she's a trooper! She went to school yesterday and worked hard. Tuesdays are her 'late' day with Camilla (p.t.). When I picked her up a little early she was putting her in the walkable. Camilla said she thought maybe Izzy wasn't up to doing this work, but she knew I would come in and say... "she's fine!" like always. I'm getting quite a reputation at that school! Anyway, Izzy did a good job in the walkable and seemed less cranky about it than last time I saw her in it.

I didn't get to speak to Margaret (s.t.) personally, but Camilla was 'around' when Margaret was working with Izzy and said that Izzy was really talking with her. She said that she had given Izzy a choice between a cracker and a cookie and she said Izzy said, "cookie." After she had a few nibbles (it was chocolate mint and apparently not a favorite of Isabelles) she asked if she wanted more to which Izzy replied, "no."

Niecie said that while in Pre-K class she put her little hand up for a stamp like the others and has been doing that everyday.

Baby steps? Maybe. I think they are worthy of praise to God, who makes all things possible.

Here is a picture of Izzy with her friends Tessa and Karis. They are two of her new bffs at Pre-K and are so sweet with her. I think I mentioned them building a castle on her tray and Izzy holding her arms back carefully as to not knock the castle down.

Last night Matt was tickling Izzy's feet and she was fussing at him. He told her if she wanted him to stop she had to use her words and say "stop" or "no," she immediately said, "no." He stopped!

Wow! What a great report! She'll probably be talking up in a storm pretty soon! It's so great that children are so accepting of others - Izzy's blessed to have found such sweet friends.

Izzy looks great! I'm so glad to hear that she is doing so well. I will be praying that her stuffy nose will go away.

Love in Christ,
