Open house!

It really sunk in that my babies are big kids now.  They were so proud to show us all of their Kindergarten room and the fun things that they do.  They love their teachers Mrs Guay and Mrs Couette.   Look at the little owls!

Cameron was excited to show off the very hungry caterpillars...




Self portraits!




Brady showing off his space.  His first note home said that he keeps the teacher on task and lets her know if she forgets any steps in the day.

Matthew had to show us Delainey's spot then his own.  His first note home said that he is eager to learn and very eager to help others when they need it.

Cameron showed his spot next.  His note home said he takes his time on his work and always completes it.

Finally Aubrey showed us her spot!  Her first note home said that she observes and learns a lot from that before asking questions.

The puzzle tables.


Reading corner.





They loved showing us how to work the smart board.



So far they are all doing pretty well adjusting to it all!  I can't wait to see their first progress reports!

Lancaster fair 2014

Lucky for me the fair only comes once a year...the kids however are just like their father and LOVE the fair!!!  They can't wait for it to come and want to be there every moment. You would think after a week in Disney they would be less excited for the events at the fair but just the opposite was true.  They had a great time and Brady even won the pedal tractor pull...I win mom of the year for forgetting to take pictures of the contest and the win.  I did however manage to get a LOT of picures of the rest of the events that we did over the course of the long weekend.

Hanging out with some friends!!!!
















A farmer for the day!  This has been the highlight of the fair for three years running now!




















Off to the barns!  They love animals!




Riding rides!  They were all big enough to ride solo this year!!!! YAY!!!


























Meeting Curious George and Michaelagelo and the fire dog!



We had all the fun while Daddy worked the horse pulls!  LOL!
