Guess who can snap? Yup..Johanna. She has been practicing and practicing and now she can do it. Now that she can she doesn't stop. *snap snap snap* go her fingers on both hands whenever they are not otherwise occupied by eating or trying to cartwheel.
That's her next endeavor. She can get her hands on the ground really well. Then she, kind of, leaps her feet; so it is more like jumping that actual cartwheeling. She's determined though to get it.
Also on her "To learn" list is bubble blowing with gum. She's got the chewing down really well and she gets it on her tongue but mostly when she blows , well the gum shoots off her tongue.
So her spring report card looks something like this:

As for spelling, Johanna handed me a piece of paper and said, "I wrote Michael on it" and you know what was on that paper? This:

She didn't ask anyone how to spell it (Obviously) and she sounded out all the right letters. I am really quite impressed by it.
I am glad the spring the weather is here b/c it is easier to practice cartwheels on the grass and if your gum blows off your tongue nobody cares.
