GL's First Day of 2s Preschool

GL started 2s preschool in the Bunnies class at PCC. This is the same school where MC did her 4s preschool. We loved the school and are excited to have a kid there again.

We had been to visit several times this summer, so GL was familiar with the classroom and knew the teachers. She did great on her first day - did not have a problem saying goodbye at drop-off and was having so much fun when I came to pick her up she wasn't ready to go! She ran and gave Ms Phoebe a big hug before we left.

She'll go to school twice a week for about 3.5 hours in the morning.

Cutest little bunny in the bunnies class!

MC's First Day of Kindergarten

MC started Kindergarten, and we are so proud of our big girl! She was nervous but excited on her first day. We had already met her teacher and seen her classroom, but she ended up in a class where she didn't know anyone, so she was intimidated walking into a room full of strangers and in a new school!

We all walked her in to school on the first day. She did great on her first day and is loving Kindergarten! She has been teary and hesitant when BD drops her off in the morning, but she is happy and says she had a good day when I pick her up in the afternoons.

Back to School Picnic

We started a new family tradition this year - we had a back to school celebration picnic on the weekend before school starts. We picked up dinner and headed to UNC campus to play and eat together.

MC's First Lost Tooth

MC lost her first tooth! She was so excited, and we were excited for her! The tooth fairy came that night and brought her a gold $1 coin plus a $5 first-tooth bonus.

Back to School Preparations

In the few weeks leading up to MC starting Kindergarten, we had lots of preparations to do to get ready!

We got her school supply list and went shopping for all the things she needs for a successful year of school!

We got hair cuts, so she'd have a fresh new 'do to start school. She even let Mrs. Kristie wash her hair in the sink for the first time!

She asked for "fangs" but luckily after a few questions, we determined she really wanted bangs.

And we went to Meet the Teacher night at her school, where we got to meet her teacher and see her classroom.

Here are some pictures of our girls. These are from August 2018. MC is 6, and GL is 2.

We have always wanted to change out the light kit on our ceiling fan in the den, but we don't have a ladder tall enough to reach. So BD improvised and MC supervised.

MC planted a sunflower seed in a pot at an event we went to on Memorial Day. All summer long she and BD have taken care of it, and it finally bloomed!

At the movies with my big girl and a sweet friend.

They are 6! And we watched the movie in theater 6! So exciting!

"Do it. SELF!!!!" (Battle cry of a 2 year old.)

Doughnuts for breakfast! (Dee-dots as GL calls them.)

Un-Love Notes

Lately anytime MC faces a consequence for poor choices regarding her behavior, she voices her displeasure in written form.

The first one appeared after she had to go to her room for screaming at me.

The next one was directed at BD after he took away her iPad when she was disrespectful.
