My crazy kids. . . #2

That's right - more kleenex fun occurred this eve. Alexa & Ben decided to dress up as each other - a change of clothes and a fancy new do (kleenex style). I can't believe how much they look like each other.

What my kids say. . . #1

Last night when we were channel surfing, we came across Sunday Night Football. I said to Ben "Oh , look the ponies are playing." to which he replied "the Giants?" Who knew he was a football fan?

Ben's First Day of Preschool - 4 Yrs

Ben had his first day of preschool this week. I cannot believe how fast he is growing up! He knew exactly where he was going and told me that he was fine and basically pushed me out the door. It kind of broke my heart!

Our evening activity

Brad had brought a projector from work home to fix and decided that since we have movie night on Saturday nights that he would set up the kids in the basement to watch their movie on the wall. They LOVE it and now Brad wants to buy a projector to have here at home. GEEZ!

Alexa's Art

Tonight Alexa was busy making masterpieces for everyone. She had said that she did a project like this in Art Class and wanted to share it with us. She showed us how to make the arches, swirls and "twisters" as Ben calls them. We all had fun - thanks for showing her how to do this Ms. Lagerstam!

Alexa's First Day of School - First Grade

I am late with posting Alexa's first day of school pictures, but here they are. I can't believe that school has started once again. It just feels like we were finally getting settled into the summer routine and "Bam" it's back to school time. I will say that it was a little easier for me to drop her off this year - no tears, but there still was that nagging feeling like you are forgetting to take something with you when I left. Yes - I was the dorky mom who had to take a picture of her in the classroom this year!
She did wonderful though - as you would expect from her. She was excited to find out that she got the teacher she wanted, plus an extra one. She has class with two teachers once again. She said to me "last year was so much fun with two teachers - so this year is going to be great too!"

We are so proud of her and Ben is too!

Alexa's School Program & Teachers

Alexa and all the Kindergartener's at her school performed a program for their parents and the rest of the school on Thursday. Several of the kids in her class had speaking parts, including Alexa who was Cinderella. She was so excited to be able to wear the dress that Aunt Angie got her and she looked so beautiful. When her music teacher Ms. Tyler introduced her all the kids "OH" and "AHed". She just beamed! Here are a few of our favorite shots from the performance.

These are pictures of her class singing their song in the program.
They are such a good group of kids!

Alexa in performing action - saying her lines and singing.

Finally - here is Alexa with her teachers - Ms. Jacob and Ms. Crossetti. She invited them out for ice cream and they kind enough to accept her invitation. She was so lucky to have such wonderful and devoted teachers.
We thank you Ms. Jacob & Ms Crossetti for all you have done for Alexa and all her classmates!

Ben's Preschool Graduation

Ben had a program on Wednesday for his graduation from preschool. He is not headed to Kindergarten just yet - (thank goodness - he is growing up too fast) - his portion of the Graduation program was more of a Promotion program. He will be in the 4 year old class next year and we could not be happier of his accomplishments for this year! Here are a couple pictures from the event.

Ben and his classmate in singing action!

Even though I had someone step in front of me this is one of my favorite shots of Ben and his teacher - Ms Kim - and here is
a better one minus the blurb.
