We LOVE Mrs. Budinger. You wouldn't believe her classroom. Every corner is filled with treasures: tall glass bottles full of cotton balls or marbles, bins of huge wooden blocks, dinosaurs, trains, posters of letters, months of the year, days of the week, class pictures, puzzles, shapes, a huge library of books, and on an on. She has quite the collection after teaching Kindergarten for 17 years! Carson is loving school! We just had his parent-teacher conference where she said he is doing great in class. Each day at school someone is the superstar. In a class size of only 17 students (hooray for that!) your time to be the superstar comes around quite often. You get to sit in a special chair at school and help with the attendance, weather, etc. Mrs. Budinger also sends home this poster paper that they fill out at the beginning of class. Addy and I go and help out a couple days a week at the beginning of class to shuffle paperwork for Mrs. Budinger (papers coming from home and papers to go home) so we got to see him honored as the superstar last week. He was beaming and so excited! Addy wants to be in the class so bad! Hopefully Mrs. Budinger will stick around for another 2 years!

It goes by WAY too quickly, and soon instead of cottonballs and marbles, it's math charts and pencils.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
