To say Mirah is PROLIFIC is an understatement.
The following are just a sampling of the things she has created over the past months. LOTS have been lost to mean old mom and her need for clean.
But look at this wonderful child. She is just so smart and good. I am just so proud of her. She is reading at a 3-4th grade level. She is at the top of her class in everything. She is excelling at Chinese and math, and spelling, and writing, and of course reading. She is reading the 3-4th grade Battle of the Books reading list. We read these “poems for two voices” together this weekend. They were all about bugs, and it was so fun. She IS having some trouble staying in her seat in class. She wants to be good, and not get into trouble, but she is easily distracted, and so so social that she talks with her neighbor all the time. We are working with her teachers to try and help her stay on task, but it’s tough. I don’t want to squash her perfect ego right now.
She is just the best thing there ever was. She is sweet to her brother who is sick right now. She loves to help cook, and clean, and is a little inventor, always looking for creative solutions.
She has the best sense of humor. She is always riffing on songs, and making jokes. She can be very sarcastic, and I just love to chat with her about everything.
Here she is on Sunday morning, before church last week. She was practicing writing her Chinese characters and wanted to show us what she knew. Totally unprompted, just wanted to. It was really sweet.

Live in action.
Yesterday we were cleaning out her room, and desk, AGAIN. And here were some of the beauties that came to the top of the pile:
These pictures are the left over decorations Mirah made for Krysta’s birthday party last week. She taped, pinned, and GLUED them up onto the walls. YES, GLUED. YES PINNED. I took them down, but kept them, because she did such a great job.
This is what she describes as “one of my most favorite things I ever made.”
It’s pretty great. It’s a palm tree over sand.
Below is a book she wrote about one of her favorite shows, “Glitter Force.”
The first two pictures are the front and back covers.
Yes, she spelled Glitter Force “Glitr Fors”
A drawing of her Primary class.
Left: A Valentine that never got delivered.
Right: “A picture of a Story of a Giant that was happy, and then it saw a mouse and was really scared”- Mirah.
She loves the show Miraculous Ladybug. It’s about a girl who lives in Paris, who has super powers and becomes a Ladybug superhero. Her name is Marinette. She drew her in both her different looks.
A lantern she made at home, on her own, for the Lantern Festival, that we missed because we were out of town again.
Mirah: “These are like the pins that you have when you are at a bowling alley, that you hit with the ball…”
Me: “Bowling pins?”
Mirah: “Yeah, bowling pins.”
Another little book she made. It is drawn on to this flower paper my mom gave her, and it is really hard to see, but she wrote and drew picture on every page.
The book is all about the things she loves:
I love the pool,
I love Grandma and Grandpa
I love Lucas, He is my Brother
I love Unicorns
I love Mermaids
I love Mom and Dad
I love ____ and ____ that are moving today
I love making believe
I love chicken noodle soup
I love my “Batedin”

A seal, A hill, A bell, a drill, a meal
