I am sure that people who love apples knows the origin of the Appleseed Day celebration. I just learned that when my children started going to school. This celebration is dedicated to a man named Jonathan Chapman, an american pioneer nursery man who introduced apple trees to large parts of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and West Virginia. He became a legend and known as Johnny Appleseed because of his project of planting an apple seed everywhere he went.

While I was waiting for the other Mommies to arrive at the school's cafeteria, I took advantage of the time by taking pictures of the arts/drawings that are posted on the wall. The librarian at the school is also the art teacher, she is member of an art organization and she always encourages the kids to practice their talents.
My daughter told me a couple of weeks ago that the art teacher saw her sketch and ask her if she can use it as exhibit in an art show. Man, that motivate Ms. Burrito to sketch some more. She told me that if she should have known that it was going to be displayed, she could have made it better.She said that she was just sketching this because the little girl that was in her mind was missing her Mom. "That's why, she looks sad" she said.
Mr. Burrito is getting serious with his study now, he realized that it is a real deal now and he can no longer slack off just like when I was teaching him at home. I am glad that Ms. Burrito is very much willing to help hi little brother learn how to read. Here's my kids at theiir best, reading books together.
Below is their progress report.
|Ms. Burritos report.|
I am so surprised that he is doing really well, he even have an outstanding one. I guess I underestimated my son's ability.
