Jelly Bean

L's first time as a Jelly Bean Helper was this past Thursday. Um, hello super cuteness.
She insisted on bringing a small barbie like toy that we got for free *cough* McDonalds *cough*.
I tried to talk her out of it, then big brother R tried to convince her to bring something else, but no such luck.
Apparently, her favorite part of the whole thing was letting everyone touch it. She went around the circle twice, and kind of skipped the part where you sit and answer questions:)

I love seeing her do so well at preschool. She jumps in there and does all the things she has watched her brothers do before.
Oh, and she picked a red jellybean in case you were wondering.

Random September Happenings

The first few weeks of September are always busy. Finishing up summer things, starting back to school things. Action, action, action.

R has the same teacher as last year (yay!) and has a smart board in his class. It is an interactive touch screen that is actually very cool.
Due to the shuffling back and forth and the multiple short days I decided not to work the entire first week of school. But every decision has consequences- I spent the last hot weekend working 3 nights in a row. So I slept in the basement, it was very cool and dark- it worked great!
We had a nice little visit with Papa on one of those days when school was done at 9:20 am. Then K went to Grammies for a few days as he had no school the Thursday/Friday of the first week back.
That's the update!

PS - the camera met an untimely end due to an incident with the tile floor. Don't worry the ugly tiles are fine and will surely be in this kitchen for another 30 years. A new camera might be making it's way here on September 25th if all goes well. Fingers crossed you won't have to look at silly iphone pictures forever.

First day of Preschool

Thankfully L's start to preschool has been easy peasy. She has been going in to drop off and pick up her brothers since she was born so the place is pretty familiar. Also K spent some time with her teaching her about preschool in the last week of August. He taught her that she should share and listen and sit criss cross applesauce.

The first orientation day she sat right down and told the teacher she could sit criss cross applesauce and sang the song. It was hilarious! Here she is confidently striding in to her first class! She picked her own clothes, shoes and even her hairstyle for the day. And of course she has her rolling princess backpack to hold her butterfly lunch kit!

The only issue is that she gets exhausted. Here is a post preschool nap on the cold kitchen floor!

Back to School

According to my blog July and August didn't happen... I will work on a summer update later. Lets just say we enjoyed the summer and our camera broke ... hence the lack of posts.
Today was the (brief) first day of school for R who is starting grade 2 and K who had his first day of Kindergarten. By next Wednesday they will both be there all day!! Little Missy has her first day on Thursday. Stay tuned!
