Five on Friday

Happy Friday!
Today I'm linking up with Christina, April and Natasha for Five on Friday!

Jackson made this sweet little pinch pot in art class at school. He painted the inside blue like the ocean, the sides green like the grass and the bottom yellow like the sun. He brought it home Wednesday and while I was at work, he wrapped it up, put it in a bag and then wrote me this note that he even put in an envelope and taped up for me. It was SO sweet that I even got a little teary-eyed. He put so much thought and effort into it. I love him and his sweet little gift so much. It's perfect to put my wedding ring in at night. ♥

Avery and I are going to see Pinkalicious the Musical tomorrow afternoon and we're both so excited. It's her favorite book series.  We have checked out almost all of the different Pinkalicious books at the library and she owns Pinkalicious and Purplicious. We usually read one or the other of them just about every night before bed. It should be a fun afternoon and we are both going to wear pink of course. ;-)

After seeing Natasha from Hello Happiness share these shoes, I ordered a pair while they are on sale!! They are so darn cute and at 40% off, they were hard to pass up. They should be perfect for Spring and Summer.
The other night Avery had her Elsa dress on with her Elsa shoes and was singing "Let it Go" into her Frozen Microphone. Obviously I had to get a picture. Ha. She cracks me up. I absolutely love this age. I tell her all the time that I want her to stay 3 forever, and unlike her brother who can't wait to grow up, she says, "okay!" She knows being little has it's benefits. ;-)

Jackson has been bringing home books from school to read every night. They started this much earlier in the year, but I'm just so impressed with how well he's doing that I wanted to document it here on the blog. When Jackson first started Kindergarten, he knew a little over half of his letters and that was it. He was a wiz with numbers and knew them all and could count to 100 with no problem, but when it came to his letters, he just wasn't interested in learning them. I tried and tried but he just didn't like writing or learning his letters. In just the 6 months he's been at school, he's mastered his letters and has gone from level 1 to level 6 of his sight-words so far (there are 7 levels so he is right where he should be.) He's even reading books and has been for quite some time, which is just amazing to me. There are different levels to the books he's reading and he just recently moved up a level. I'm so proud of him for all the hard work and effort he's put in at school.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
