A chapter ending

Avery graduated from preschool this year and is off to Kindergarten in the fall. She is so excited to ride the bus and be a big girl. So far, I am handling it fine, although, I can't believe how fast she is growing up!
We absolutely LOVED her preschool! Her teachers were kind, she learned a ton and they did such a great job not only teaching her ABC's and 123's but bible verses and stories that she can apply in living her life. I will really miss that part of her education as she transitions into a public school system. I wonder how to explain it to her, as it was her favorite part of learning every day?

Daddy's son

Last Christmas we were looking at the Fisher Price catalog and Jake's obsession started with motorized vehicles. He wanted the Lightning McQueen Speed race car soo badly and didn't understand why he couldn't have it RIGHT NOW! It was annoying yes, but at 2 1/2 it is hard to explain that you just don't go buy what you want, and it was too much money to spend on a car for a 2 year old. Not to mention the fact that it only rides one child. But also pretty sweet, because he really connects with "Speed" and thinks he is his best friend.

Common sense just did not work. So, when garage sale season started, I put the 2 best shoppers I know on notice... I need a motorized vehicle STAT!!!

We did not end up with the Lightning McQueen vehicle, but we have something to drive and he is Thrilled! They take their "kids" to the grocery, DisneyLand, drs. appointments, and of course to work! Good times had by all!!!
