One Year of Preschool Under Our Belts

Where does time go?  I can't believe that Ava and Reese had their last day of preschool Thursday.  They had such a wonderful year, always asking "Is tomorrow school?"  Their teachers were awesome and both girls really showed growth in multiple ways...socially, academically, etc.  While just going on Tuesdays and Thursdays this year, they will get to go all five days of the week next year.  It will still be just mornings but they will LOVE getting to go every day!

Taking a picture of Ava and Reese on the last day of school with their teachers prompted me to look back at the pictures from the first day of school.  It might just be my "mommy glasses" but haven't they lost their baby faces?!  Oh how I'll miss those baby faces.

Center of Attention

There are pros and cons to almost everything.  Having grandparents that live 6 hours away has its drawbacks but the biggest perk is that when they visit the grandkids are the center of attention.  That is exactly how it played out when Nana and Pappy came to visit last weekend...


Playing in the back yard...



Building with the new Lincoln Logs Nana and Pappy bought...



Everyone needs a clown nose....



Along with big red lips...


Brushing teeth in Nana's shower cap...



A little baking...


Stacking and making words with scrabble letters...


Adventures on the trail in our neighborhood...


Outdoor time with sidewalk chalk...


Balance bike time...

Putting on performances...

And don't forget Cosmic Jump...

And then Nana and Pappy's car pulls away and it's back to reality!  (Don't worry...the girls don't have it too hard!)
