This summer we moved to a small(ish) town. We moved from an area in Connecticut called Silvermine. We loved Silvermine, but I always regretted that we never took advantage of all that Silvermine offers its residents. For example, we could have, but never did, walked to Silvermine Market. So now, I want to get more involved in our community. So when we learned that the town was hosting a “Touch A Truck” this weekend, we decided to go. And then we found out that 11-12 were the designated quiet (horn free) hours, even better!
The other evening, D and I attended Emily’s Kindergarten Open House. I was immensely impressed with her teacher and everything she had to say. I especially loved when she said so many fabulous things about Em, of course. But the best part was seeing Emily’s work hanging on the walls.
School has started and we are off and running in so many directions… I remember things like spare time fondly… So in the absence of a “real post”, here are some pictures of us hard at play. Emily was always involved in playing, but lately she has not been a fan of pictures, which is why she is in only a few pictures.
This is my favorite project ever. It is not the one I am proudest of. It is not the coolest. It is not the best upcycle I have ever done. But it is the best. Because it is the first upcycle/diy project I did with all of my kids. and that is just really cool!
Now that Emily is in Kindergarten, we need to be even more organized then ever before! Morning and afternoons are especially organized to the minute.
We let Emily choose how to celebrate her graduation and (after I made a few suggestions), she chose to go out to a pick your own farm for peaches, apples and a sunflower maze.
Last week, Emily graduated from preschool. It was a surreal event. I knew it was coming. She had been practicing the songs for weeks. She (and Spencer and Sidney) practiced crossing over the bridge every afternoon before we got in the car. And I have been preping for kindergarten for about as long. But it was still surreal to actually see her in the ceremony, in her dress, high heels, and graduation cap.
