He is really loving his new class and almost as if magically has discovered a love for letters, words and writing the past 2 weeks. They work on this a lot at school. I have to say that this makes my heart really, really happy! I even down loaded a few apps for my phone to help with this new love of all things phonics! I got him a new bigger bike at a consignment sale a few weeks ago (for $7 I might add!) So he's been into riding that a lot and he's taking soccer "lessons" at school so he's been enjoying that as well!
She is also into words these days, speaking them that is. It's been so encouraging as it has helped with her being so frustrated at times! She says basic words we use daily, shoes might possibly be her favorite word, she says that one a lot, she likes shoes a lot! I heard her say, No and Mine for the first time this week, not so excited about those but it was bound to happen. She is a cutey pie and on a side note, the majority of her hair is pulled back into a pony tail in these pictures, it's getting long!
Happy Saturday from our fam to yours!

The more pictures I take the more I wonder if I ever might want to do this you know...as a side gig?! In the meantime I am still having fun snapping away!

Whew, my blogging marathon has come to an end.
We headed to the beach this weekend with 12 friends from our small group both little and big! What joy these two girls have on their faces! Hopefully I'll be back sooner rather than later to share the rest of this oh so cute beach photo session!
I took these pics on the playground for my work display bulletin board. May I introduce you to:
Anna, Kamaria, Elmer,
Lin, Bum, Hannon,
Evelyn, Lauren, Courtney,
Jayna, Elijah, Brooke,
Terrence, Jacob, Flinn,
Maggie, Destynee, Andre,
Thomas, Madylin, Blen,
and Logan. (sorry the grid repeated, and ZiYa and Jeremiah were absent this day!)
Pretty cute and way smart looking, don't you think?!
The weekend before school started the 4 of us hit the road for a "last blast" together. We went to a town off the Blue Ridge Parkway called, Little Switzerland. The fun fact is that my family used to go visit this beautiful mountain spot, so many memories were on my mind as we toured around the town. We had a good time at the Switzerland Inn, at the pool, playing shuffleboard, hiking a wee bit, going to an apple orchard and even going to Linville Caverns.
