First Day of Three-year-old Preschool

Alec had his first day of Preschool today.

This is what he immediately did when we got to the porch.

He had a great day and he loves his new school.

Claire’s Second First Day of First Grade

Because of class sizes Claire has to go to a different school now starting on day three. No more walking to school; we have to drive to this one. BUT it is the school that Mommy went to for kindergarten through sixth back in the day. She was a little apprehensive but she seems to like it now. We took a couple of pictures because it was still a big day.

And then you have the shenanigans going on while Mommy and Claire are going to her second new school of the week.

Walking to School

Our neighborhood school is walking distance from our house. Takes about five minutes to get down there and about 25 to climb back up. (kidding, sort of, there are A LOT of stairs). Claire has always wanted to walk to school so she was super excited to get to do so.

Chickens and Fish

We went to Auntie Cecilia’s house for a fun Saturday afternoon. The kids loved feeding the chickens and picking eggs. We then went down to fish at the pond.

Someone Got Her Name in a Book!

Claire worked hard and read her 25 books for the reading program at the public library this summer.

Alec got his name in a book too but he got to keep his. He had 25 books read to him. You have to read them yourself to get your name in a library book. The nice ladies had some books and made him a sticker and gave him a book to keep.

Claire’s Booster

So if you haven’t figured out, Mommy is a bit protective, especially after Claire was in a car accident. So for her 6th birthday she got to graduate from a five point harness car seat to a booster. I know, a little longer than most, but also a little bit safer. She was quite excited!
