september highlights

Hard to believe we just finished the first full week of October. September was such a big month it seemed to end as soon as it started – Bobby started grade 1, Cordelia turned 2, my mother and brother came to visit and my SIL got married! I wanted to share some of the photos from our big month – so here are some pics from Bobby’s first day of school and Cordelia’s little birthday party. ♥ Happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrating this weekend!

I love hearing from you, please leave me a comment!

Happy Friday everyone!! Even though it was a short week I am so ready for the weekend. I have a lot of highlights over the past few weeks, so today I wanted to post pictures of Bobby’s last field trip for the year, and his last day of kindergarten. *quiet tear*

The last field trip of the year was to the zoo – we got to go after hours and the kids got to learn about the different animals. Bobby got to touch a tortoise and a ferret, and his favorite animal was the cute little arctic fox. It was difficult with Cordelia because she is at that in-between stage where she doesn’t want to stay in her stroller, but she also isn’t ready to hold hands and walk with us. We tried having her up on Daddy’s shoulders but she did not like that at all. Thankfully, because the zoo was closed – we were able to let her run around a bit.

Bobby really loved kindergarten and his teacher, so he had a bit of a tough time the evening of the last day of school. We reassured him that he’ll still get to see her every day, as his new class is right across from hers, and that his new teacher will be really great too.

We still need to keep up with writing and reading practice, building his fine motor skills and hand strength, Taekwondo twice a week & practicing regularly. I think all of those things will help him when he starts grade 1 in September.

What were your highlights this week? Do you have any fun plans for the summer?

Happy Friday everyone! It was a week of a whole lotta firsts and we survived, though it was smart of me to avoid wearing eyeliner almost all week because there was a lot of crying on my part. We spent the long weekend out at my inlaws cabin and we took a trip up to this gorgeous lookout. Bobby loved running around the paths in the trees, and all the fresh air must have gotten to Cordelia because she just slept. Tuesday I went back to work and the kids went to the dayhome, and Wednesday was Bobby’s first day of school. He got to pick a teddy bear to bring with him for his first day, and he chose Pikachu which was pretty cute. Everything is going really well, but I sure am looking forward to spending the weekend at home with the kids ♥
