Ziedite spends a lot of time playing with her friends in our condo area. She is quite the social little girl. She is out every afternoon playing until late in the evening on most days.
She wanted to earn some money so put out an ad to walk dogs. She only got one taker. However, since a neighbor knew she loved dogs, she was offered an even better "job" for a week: to
take care of a 10-year old dog named Tara. She simply has to go play with her and give her a walk every day, and make sure she feeds her and gives her water every evening. She is very responsible with this job and does it every day without having to be reminded.
Ziedite is in Girls 3 in Kidnastics, the highest level. This is her last month in the program. In September she joins the American Heritage Girls
progam, "the premier national character development organization for young women that embraces Christian values and encourages family involvement." We will be going every Monday evening for a couple of hours.
As far as schooling goes, she is still homeschoooled. She is enrolled in CHEP, a state-run program for kids that want to do the majority of the work at home. She goes in only on Thursdays for
the "5th and 6th grade Club" where they learn some fun things together in different subjects; she loves that club since she enjoys getting together with other kids. She will still be taking violin and choir classes through the OCMA on Wednesdays; Tuesday evenings
she will continue to be in the kids' choir at church.
