Parent-Teacher Conferences

It's that time of year again...parent-teacher conferences. The three oldest girls' conferences went as anticipated but then it came time for SaraGrace's.

Since Jake's escapades have usurped SaraGrace's of late, those of you who are newer to the blog may not know that she was just as much of a stinker that Jake is.

So it was with a smothered smile and a bit of trepidation that I entered her classroom tonight.

I was not disappointed.

She cracks her teacher up.


SaraGrace is our resident drama queen. She is actually quite talented and if she develops the self-confidence she might become quite an actress someday. She loves to draw and is far more interested in drawing than in any form of school work.

She has a reading teacher that gives her some additional help. Her comment was, "SaraGrace is the most hilarious five year old I've ever met in my life."

Yep...that's our girl!

She doesn't really mean to be funny. She is accidentally funny. She says the most outlandish things and let's just say that tact is a completely foreign concept to her.

She has dreams of becoming a fashion designer. She might need to rethink that idea... Her unique style is well-known as she parades around the neighborhood in her 'get-ups.' Her older sisters have had some moments of deep mortification when SaraGrace shows up at the bus stop to greet them wearing one of the following... (she only goes half-days, so she goes to the bus stop in the afternoon to meet her sisters)

I can't remember for sure, but I think I did draw the line on her wearing this one out of the yard. Or maybe not...

I guess this is God's way of not letting life become to serious for you:) She would keep me laughing all day and what a joy that would be. I love the "get up" for the bus stop:) I would love to see the faces of her big sisters...Too funny!!

Come on, Karin...she's got a great sense of style!! Oh my. You must have so much fun in your house with all that energy and creativity.

Lori said...

Oh my stars. You are right, Lucy is a lot like SaraGrace! We must get these two girls together!

That is just so funny that she cracks her teachers up...I love a kid like that!!

It is just a comfort to know that I am not the only mom of daughters who stand on thier own fashion sense come what may. Can I just say that those things that don't completely break make us stronger ...eventually.
ps-Glad the conference went well. Homeschooling adds a whole new dimension to "parent-teacher meetings". I simply wind up mumbling to myself:)

Ha! Love, love, love the fashion. I used to remark to people: #3 has such good fashion sense - she always dressed appropriately, by herself, and matched. Well, the joke was on me. It was just a few months long fluke. Today she is wearing pink pants that have large lime green and orange flowers on them, and a pink,purple and blue striped shirt. I just go with it but boy I want to stick a button on her that says "My mother was in no way responsible for this outfit."

:) You have such beautiful treasures and soon, you will get to hug the biggest one for the first time in a long time. Yeah!

SaraGrace is such a sweetheart!!! Love her sense of style!

Kristin Ferguson said...

Remind me to send you one of Josi's famous get-ups. Perhaps she and Sarah Grace could start their own "line" of slightly eccentric fashions. :)

Meredith said...

Karin, that is so sooo funny! Love the shoes too! :)

Gretchen said...

Oh My! That last picture is a doozy! She could probably make a lot of money for an outfit like that!

So glad she keeps you on your toes, my friend!

Cari said...

That's just how the fashion designers are...outlandish and over-the-top! She'll fit in perfectly. :)

She is a cutie!
