Es knows the alphabet, can identify about ten letters correctly each time, knows all her colors (though blonde escapes her. Mommy's hair is "white"), knows her basic shapes including the favorite hexagon, hasn't stopped running since she started more than a year ago, knows at least a dozen songs by heart, and so, so much more. She's such a joy to teach and she loves to learn!
Two of my favorite things about Es are:
1. Her sense of humor. Essie makes up her own jokes all the time. She does the wildest impressions of things I wouldn't consider to be humorous until she starts talking about them. She does an impression of the moon that sounds like a baby seal and looks like squinting. I love it. She thinks Shehan is hilarious and that she's hilarious too, often cracking up at her own jokes. She loves to laugh and she loves to have fun!
Me: Es are you ready for bed?
Es: Because....because...oh! I just gotta go potty.
I could go on but I'm tired and it's been a very long day. We had a nice spaghetti dinner (one of her favorite meals) and then opened presents. Afterward we had yummy cupcakes, or if you're Es you just had frosting.
