Reverse Schoolology

September 9, 2014

Elizabeth is absolutely loving school this year. She’s a big fan of big kid school. She loves her class and her teacher. So far she’s reported no major problems, so I’ve got my fingers crossed that it will stay that way. A few weeks ago, near the beginning of school, Matt and I spelled something […]

Family Tradition

September 8, 2014

Tonight while I was making dinner, Elizabeth and Ryan were doing that loud, rough, noisy kind of playing where I keep yelling “you guys better quit it before someone gets hurt!” Obviously they don’t and Ryan threw a block at his sister’s face. (Throwing is his new thing. It’s fun. But at least he got […]

Friday Night Leftovers- Long Time Edition

September 5, 2014

•Elizabeth’s special prize was a pencil. A pencil WITH A PURPLE ERASER! I know! Basically the best thing ever. •She also informed me that her pencil “doesn’t have a sharpie.” She means it isn’t sharpened yet and I love that she’s still little enough to mess up words occasionally. •Instead of going to bed on […]

Sibling Sweetness

August 29, 2014

Today, Elizabeth stubbed her toe after school and was crying in the living room. Ryan was in the dining room having his share of the after school snack. I was rocking Elizabeth on the couch when Ryan showed up with the last piece of his doughnut for his big sister, to make her feel better. […]

Kindergarten Pick Up

August 26, 2014

Elizabeth gets out of school at 3:55pm. (I know. It’s soooo late.) Her school is a K-8 school and it’s pretty large. I think there are seven or so kindergarten classes and then distribute that amount of children through all the upper grades as well. Kids can walk home, take the bus, or be picked […]
