{Addy's Mom & Me Night}

Have I told you how much I love preschool?  Well, I love it! I have been so, so, so happy with Addy's preschool this year...she loves Ms. Cindy!  They have been working on letters, numbers, and sounds....but they have also done an awesome science unit...learning all about the human body: ears, eyes, mouth, heart, digestive system, etc....all complete with take-home diagrams that Addy cut out and colored herself!  Plus now they are working on an art unit...studying and talking about various artists.  So cool. Have I said that Addy loves it too? She is so sad on Mondays and Fridays because there is no school. 

So the sad part is she is almost a preschool graduate.  She had Kindergarten Round-Up today at the Elementary school (insert tears here).  School buses, gyms, cubby's, school supplies, playgrounds....oh she can't wait!  (And I haven't told her she isn't riding the bus yet....I just can't send her (or Carson) on the bus.  It's my way of sheltering them just a little bit longer.  All the trouble happens on the bus...am I right??!)  Oh man, she looks so grown up in this picture!

Here is a little video for the Grandmas of one of the songs she sang at "Mom&Me Night".  It was fun to escape at the end of tax season (hooray!) with my little Addy date-night.  She's a performer for sure.

There is NO WAY she is old enough to go to kindergarten!!! How did your kids grow up so fast?! I'm sure she is so excited, she's going to do great! (and I'm sure you will start to enjoy the time with just you and Ry... can I just say I would be taking advantage of nap time again!:) )

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 pictures...it 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?
