I have been pretty amazed with how smart Tai has gotten the last little while. Here's why:
1-My brother Dustin gave her a DVD called Letter Factory for Christmas last year. She has watched it a couple times over the year, nothing serious. We got it out a while back and she watched it a couple times on a trip to Vegas. Well now she can tell you what sound each letter makes. I am in awe! If that wasn't cool enough that she picked that up all on her own thanks to that DVD (go get it everyone!), but now when she says words, she is starting to figure out what letters are in that word, due to the sounds that word makes. She tries to figure out what letter that word starts or ends with, and also what other letters she can hear in the middle. She has been doing this for a couple months, which means she was doing this when she was 4. What???? I don't think I even knew what a letter was at 4, let alone what sound each letter makes. Kids just keep getting smarter and smarter at earlier ages!!! You go TAI!!!!

2-She has become a walking encyclopedia on Dinosaurs. The other night we were out to grandpa and Grandma Quarnbergs and she was telling them all about dinosaurs. They couldn't belive it. Not only can she tell you the names of the dinosaurs (even I can't do that, those are hard to say and remember), but she can tell you if they are omnivores, herbivores, or carnivores (huge words), and how to tell the difference between those three, how big each dinosaur is, what their preditors or prey are (huge words again), how fast they can run, if they migrate, how they protect themselves from other dinosaurs, how their bones got to be fossils and on, and on, and on. It is actually pretty cool. She is now telling us that she wants to be a Paleontologist and dig up a “whole dinosaur” with a hammer, chizzel and a brush. I just love it!! Keep dreaming big sweetheart and someday we will see you out on a dig site, digging up your very first WHOLE DINOSAUR!!!!

Tai at a BYU game

Tai has been asking Jake and I to take her to a BYU game, so we bought one of Aaron & Suz's extra tickets and we took Tai. She LOVED it and has been asking to go back. I even got her a BYU shirt to wear. The guys and the girls had to split up because we only have 4 seats right by eachother. I sent Tai to sit with Jake, and here is what I kept looking over to see: He would hold her high up in the air and she would dance.

Suz and her kids, Payton & Addie:

When we were walking back to the car, Jake kept right on holding her high in the air, and she just kept on dancing and shaking it:

BYU Quarnberg Girls

Jake ended up having to work for one of our home BYU Football games!! I know it was like against all we stand for, but hey, it happened. So at the last minute I needed to find someone to go with me, so I asked Mal. She said "Yes" and away we went. We had so much fun together. I kept grabbing her arm and throwing it in the air to help me cheer for the BYU Cougars, she even bought herself a cougar shirt, there is no turning back now!! She and I had a great time together!!! Thanks for going with me Mal and having a fun girls day!!! I am so glad that you are my sister!!!! Now I have someone to help me put up with all these Quarnberg boys!!!
