Taylor is Totally Terrific!



This week is Taylor's Totally Terrific week at school. The whole week is "all about Taylor". We took in a poster board of pictures of her. She took in a favorite book, and Mrs. Hatfield read it to the class. On Tuesday I went in and she presented her poster board, and she did an interview. The point of Totally Terrific is for the class to get to know her a little better. She did AWESOME. I think I am a total nut case, I found myself several times during her presentation wiping tears from my eyes. I just can't believe it, my baby girl is so smart, talented, beautiful and hilarious.
One of her pictures was of her and Ginger and when she was telling about that one she said "This is me and my sister" Mrs. Hatfield just kind of looked at me like, 'I didn't know she had a sister?' So I had to tell Taylor to explain that it was her dog. It was pretty CUTE!
Here are some of the Taylor's answers to her interview questions:
They asked her birthday, favorite color, food, book, movie, game, animal; her favorite animal was - a baby giraffe
Her favorite thing to do with her family is- have a tea party with her real glass tea party set.
When she grows up she would like to- stay up as late as I want , eat cookies, drink hot tea and watch a movie. lol
She has always wished that- a bird would land on her finger like Snow White. =)
At the end of her presentation and interview the kids had to each draw a picture and write a sentence about her and they were later all bound and put together as a book for Taylor to keep.

Then it was snack time, it was kind of like a celebrate Taylor Day! We took Cookies, Mandarin oranges and juices for the kids. (all things she loves). It was a really special time for Taylor and she really enjoyed sharing her family, friends and things she loves with her friends.
