3 of 100 Happy Days: Bella and the Amazing Banana

We live in a simple home and in a humble but joyful neighborhood. This has been our home for almost five years now and we are truly blessed to have a house we can call our own.

She is already familiar with the letters of the alphabet and she can easily identify them. Thanks to the educational DVDs and applications on her tab.

I saw this “I Write My Alphabet” material in the mall and thought about introducing it to Bella. It would be a good exercise for her to at least learn the basic strokes in writing the alphabet. It would be an achievement if she can already write her name before June :) Wishing! Read the rest of this entry »
