Lydia's First Time Writing Her Name

I didn't know Lydia knew how to spell her name on her own.  Today, while we were outside enjoying our beautiful high 60s weather, Lydia was playing with sidewalk chalk, drawing things like sailboats and cassette players (thanks, Blue's Clues).  Then I heard her spelling her name to herself, so I walked over, and this is what I saw:

Yes, the "y" looks like a cherry, and the "d" is backwards and the "a" is a balloon, but not only does she know how to spell her name, but she was using that knowledge in her play!  It makes me happy.  I guess I better be more consistent with our handwriting lessons.
