First Day of K

The first day of school is always a special day...as special as the last.  So this morning I made Doodles an smiley face pancake.  Just the two of us got to eat breakfast.  The little girls were sleeping away.  It could not have been more perfect.  We talked about all parts of her day coming up.  I think she is ready!

I think she liked it!

Her hair is always a challenge for me.  It's been awhile since I have really done any hair.  She decided on dog ears' today. 

A story at the bus stop.  Grammy and Mom came for the big sendoff!  We all go to the bus stop to wait.  And wait.. And wait.  And the bus comes...we wave her down...but she waves back and goes right by us. Hmmm.  After a few minutes Kelli calls the Transportation Dept.  Oops, she just thought we were waving at her.  The bus driver returns and apologizes all over herself.  It's just one of those first day glitches.  Monday will be a better day!

Open For Business

Look who grew over the summer!

Babies are the newest 'toy'.

Little bit of rough and tumble.

Loving the concentration in her face.

Busy little hands.




Bet you could never what is happening here!?  Taking care of business.

Naps are always good.

A few tears but lots and lots of smiles.

 Rediscovering toys.
 
It won't be long until she is motoring around all over the place.

Trying to check for batteries.


 Where did all those teeth come from?

Before And After

Today we played beauty shop.  Somebody dances all night in Doodle's hair and it looks just like Cassie's did when she was little.  Oh my word.  We spend lots of minutes getting those rats out.  but today was a very special day...Open House in Kindergarten.

Our after shot!  She was so excited about he day and about having some one on one time with Wammy.  And she didn't get whopped once!
 
So early tomorrow morning the bus will come and she will get on.  Wow how time flies!  I remember when Trevor brought Kelli over to meet us.  She had to check Wammyville out for herself and not take Trevor's word for it. (I've know Trevor since the girls were in high school.)

A Practice Day

School actually starts for us next Tuesday but the teachers have already gone back for meetings and room set up time.  So we are having a softer open than we have ever had.  Once Tuesday comes things will be a little more normal.  I had a friend ask how my year was shaping up and I was explaining our roster for this year.  She said that I needed a whistle and a clipboard with a sign-in sheet.  I am sure I will feel that way in the beginning but once the schedule turns 'normal' I should be okay.
 
Fun Friday with a few more this week.
 

Got the metal horses from my dad.  We had an old piece of plywood in the garage.  Sarah gave me a roll of paper and I found a dole rod on Mark's workbench.  And wha-la..an outdoor Art Table.

Four little blond girls having the best time outside.


 The paint palates are pretty awesome too.  Think I might dry them and see what we can make out of them on another day.
 
She loves the little rocks.  They sound really cool when you throw them on the metal chairs.  We may need to run by Lowe's and pick up a few more bags at the rate we are going already.

Creative genius at work.

Wish these would stay forever!

JOY!


Singing along with Raffi while we paint.  You really can't go wrong with a little Raffi...well, it might have been a lot of Raffi. Took me back to my preschool days and driving in the car with my kids.

New to Wammyville a really cool old cooler I got at the 127 World's Longest Yard Sale.  And they said I would never use any of my 'junk'.  Well, here you go folks.  And it works perfectly!

And they love it!

Maybe a little too much.  They spent lots of time at the 'water cooler.'

Lots of trips to the potty and a few more diaper changes than usual too.

Doodle's stick collection display...complete with her shadow.

Prewriting skills

When you are the big kid on the block you get to chill in the hammock.  One rule...you have to get in and out all by yourself.

And to complete our morning before lunch and naps...a little Raffi Dance Party!
