Hello, My name is Nerb!

So Bren got some alphabet stickers in the mail today and was so excited to spell out some words that she knows.

We've just gotten her to successfully spell her own name and include the "e" which she so often leaves out.

For the longest time she'd spell her name "Brn".

Knowing what she was up to, I expected to see her name proudly spelled out on her bedroom door as I climbed the stairs in answer to her excited squeals.

Once I got to the top of the stairs and saw her door, I cracked up laughing.

There in little colorful squares, Bren had created her masterpiece.


Well at least she included the "E"!!

I wish I had thought to take a photo of it before we fixed it!

We are working hard on our alphabet which is presenting a surprising struggle for such a smart, quick-witted girl.
She's still having the hardest time recognizing 4 or 5 letters and then has an even harder time writing left to right.
She's much stronger at math and would rather spend all her time counting, adding and subtracting.

Or drawing on her hand.

Bella does the same thing- writing backwards occasionally!
