Quinnie Lately

“Lately” as in random photos from the past year that haven’t been used in other blog posts…

When did she start looking like a teenager?! She’s growing up too fast…

I love that her silly side is still going strong.

Quinnie and Kiera both have a natural ear for music. They’ve taught themselves quite a few songs on the piano and recorder by ear (Ode to Joy is a favorite). I would love to get them into lessons but they both insist on teaching themselves just for fun.

Students change schools in 5th grade here. We checked out a few on their open house days (even though she’s only in 3rd Grade- we wanted to get an early look). Quinnie was especially drawn to the science classes.

Jumping off the 3 Meter high diving board. She has since jumped of the 5 Meter one. Fearless!

Picked her up from school and she was wearing only the hood of her coat (silly side again!).

Still missing her friend Cassidy in America (though we’ve been Skyping with them more often, which she is thrilled about!).
