it's hard to believe that 2013 is over - penny is four years old! about a week ago i realized that penny was 3 in 2013, will be 4 in 2014, etc. this is really going to help her in the future when she's my age and cannot for the life of her remember how old she is.
alex and penny made a great resolution this morning - we are all going to try to clean up after ourselves more and keep the apartment in better shape. she told alex that she is going to try and listen better. she is going to write one thing that makes her happy in her diary every day. she can now write her name and spell the names of everyone in her class in english and in hebrew. she wrote wonderful thank you notes for all of her birthday presents. three was a great year for penny - she's grown into such a self assured, intelligent, funny girl. it is crazy to believe that this time next year, penny will be in kindergarten. big changes in 2014! i can't wait to see what happens next!
from our little family to yours, i hope 2014 is filled with health, joy, good food, and good times.
