Things Kati Ann Likes

Kati Ann drew this at school today.  She told me that she didn't have time to draw me in the picture but it was a picture of her family.  I love the drawing of Jared!

Another Visit from the Tooth Fairy

I captured this picture immediately after Kati Ann pulled her tooth yesterday.  Is she not the cutest thing?  She was so excited.  The tooth fairy left her $.75.  She got an extra quarter since she pulled it herself.  The tooth fairy left pixy dust on her pillow too!

3 Year Old Preschool

Our little man started 3 year preschool on Tuesday.   We are so thrilled that Kie is in Mrs. Lyman's class and will be a Busy Bear just like his sister was 3 years ago!  Its hard to believe that Kie was just 5 4 months old when Kati Ann started Busy Bears and now his is going himself!

!st Grade

Monday was the start of a whole new season of our life.  Kati Ann started 1st grade at Farley Elementary.  Her teacher's name is Mrs. Melton and she loves school.  The very first thing she said to me when she got home was "Mom, can I eat lunch in the cafeteria?"  She thought it was great that they had hot lunch and CHOCOLATE MILK!  So, she ate cafeteria lunch on Wednesday and thought she was big time!
Tuesday morning Jared took Kati Ann to school and had to walk in to put money on her account in the cafeteria and she said to him, "Dad, can't you just drop me off?  I can walk in by myself!"  Of course he explained that he was going in to drop of money in the cafeteria but we were so pleased by her independence.
She is adjusting beautifully to the new school schedule.
In fact, we are all adjusting well.  I was probably most nervous about my own personal adjustment to a new routine but now I understand why parents get so excited when their kids go to school.  I'm kinda digging this new school schedule!  However, I do miss my girl during the day but I'm so glad that she loves it.
