Kati attends Faith Christian School where we live in Lake Geneva. It's a small private school and we
LOVE it!!! Kati is having a GREAT year in Kindergarten!! She's learning to read right now and tries reading everything in our home or as we are passing signs while driving in our car. Listening to Kati read and sound out words is music to our ears!!! When we brought Kati home in 2007, she was only 14 months old. We had no idea at that time that she would soon struggle with her speech. At age 3 she began to get really frustrated when we couldn't understand a lot of the things she was trying to tell us. Kati was attending our local Montessori School at the time. I began listening to other kids her age in class and realized they were able to pronounce their words more clearly. I asked her teachers for information on how I could have her tested. Kati was tested for speech and we soon realized she would leave off the first letter of most of her words. Kati has been in speech since she was 3 years old for 40 minutes a week. She's now only needs 20 minutes a week!!! Kati is doing GREAT and has come a long way!!! We are extremely proud of Kati and can't wait to see what God has in store for our precious girl!
Kati 's school each year allows some of the young girls to cheer during the High School game! Well, last night was a HUGE night for Kati! She LOVED every single moment!! It was SO much fun for her Daddy and I to watch the pure JOY on her face as she ran out on the basketball court and cheered!! Kati is such a JOY and has a" HUGE LOVING HEART"!!! She's LOVES to please everyone!! We thank God he allowed us to be her Dad and Mom!!
