These are a few of my Favorite Things

If Kaitlyn had words what would she say she loves?  Shoes.  She actually does say that, miraculously =).  Shortly after I get a pair on her she will go find different pair and ask me to put them on.  Notice she has a different pair in each picture.   Outside.  Probably the reason shoes are […]

Daughter and Friend

Hannah started pre-school last week.  We are doing a co-op with a few other friends and last week was my week to teach.  We had a great time learning more about each other and the letter Aa.  She had a fun time today at preschool and was very excited and proud to show off her […]

Letting Go

Thursday, we had kindergarten orientation.  It was really comforting to be in the classroom and hear what they would be doing each day.  Because I have a basic idea of what goes on in the classroom, I can ask better questions to get real answers instead of the typical “fine”, “nothing”, or “it was good.” […]
