Back to School

September is already here. We are getting into the swing of school. I am so disappointed I left my camera at Hovander Park a few weeks ago. Luckily I still have my phone to capture some first day of school photos.

Amara is in Kindergarden at Isom. I was so excited when we found out Mrs. Anker is her teacher. Kai had her and she has a way of keeping a class full of 5 year olds attention. She does a lot of little songs and rhymes to keep learning fun. Amara loves it and has 3 other little girls in her class who she knows a little and look forward to her developing friendships with them. I look forward to hearing stories about her day. I will be volunteering in her class a few times a month.

Brielle is going to My First School and has Teacher Leslie. She is an amazing teacher who has lots of patience, experience and faith. The rocking horse that fits 3 people is usually where Brie is when I get there to pick her up. She has show and tell each day and loves to put it in her backpack and hang it on her hook. Our next door neighbor Sam is going too, so me and his mom, Joy, are taking turns driving. Sam and Brielle spend a lot of time together and we hoped the two of them wouldn't goof off to much. So far so good!

I tried several times to get Kai to pose for the camera, or I mean just look at the camera. He is not into it! Hopefully if I don't push it he'll get over it soon. This is about the best I could get on one of his first days waiting for the bus. He is so good with the neighbor baby, sweet little Libby.

Kai is blessed to have Mrs. VanDiest for 2nd grade. He has a lot of kids in his class from last year. But he also loves to meet new friends too. His teacher last year said "Kai is so kind to everyone." Yah, that make me proud. He is doing well in school and even gets a little disappointed if he get a satisfactory S and not an S+. I told him, "Everything doesn't have to be perfect, just try your best." He is learning to respect, be responsible and to stay focused.

We had such a fun summer, September has been beautiful too. I hope now that there is more of a schedule that I can have a little more time to myself. I want to walk, get organized, and do more etsy items. I will post some summer pictures and etsy stuff on here soon.

Your kids are getting so big! I can't believe Amara is in kindergarten! How fun that Brielle and Sam get to go to preschool together too. Kai is so funny, I wonder where he gets that perfectionism ;) I am excited to see you guys in November!

It seriously seems like just yesterday I got the phone call saying Amara Karen was here and healthy! YAY a GIRL and now that little baby is off to Kindergarten...Time can SLOW DOWN now. And the apple doesn't fall far from the tree with Mr. Kai having to have everything PERFECT. :) lol
