She loves it!

IMG_0524eI love watching my little smartie girl working on her homework and she loves doing it.  She is one dedicated little girl and most days she opens up her reading before we even pull out of the school parking lot and many days has all her homework completed before we arrive home.  Maisie adores school, playing school and learning.  What more could a proud Mama ask for!!

When I looked at the picture above it looked very familiar so I went searching through the blog and found the following picture.IMG_8506a This picture was taken in March 2010 when Maisie was only four years old and in Kindergarten.  Now she’s a “big” girl, almost six years old, a second grader, still loving homework, still adorable and still wearing the exact same sweater! 

Hey, at least I get my moneys worth out of her clothes!

After all my cooking and baking for Maisie’s meet last weekend I am enjoying a cooking-free week right now…but more on that one later.  So since I’m not cooking anything new this week I thought I’d tempt you with a little delicious food p0rn from the past.  Perfect now that the temps are dropping is my Creamy Tomato Soup Florentine.  This soup is “adult” tomato soup as it’s rich, creamy, healthy and totally wonderful with great depth of flavor from the roasted tomatoes.  Click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.IMG_6763

  1. What a smart girl! She is oh, so, cute too!

    We are going to have your lasanga soup tomorrow night. I can't wait!

  2. Wish she could send some of that homework love over here! We've got two little homework haters. (well three, I guess, if you count me, haha)

    Soup looks delish!

  3. You do know that you are one of the luckiest moms ever, don't you??? How many kids love homework as much as Maisie? She is something else!

  4. Oh wow - look are little Baby Maisie! So sweet. And I can't believe she is still wearing the same sweater! Rachel's arms and legs keep growing out of her clothes too fast. And that is wonderful that she loves learning so much.
