Preschool Graduation

It's was Kaitlyn's last day of preschool (for the year) yesterday. That makes it officially summer right? Ick. I'm not really looking forward to having her home all day every day. I think it will drive us both insane. And I know she feels sort of the same way because when I picked her up yesterday she asked "do I get to go to my new school tomorrow?"

"Miss Dari" has done a great job with preschool this year. I am amazed at how much Kaitlyn has picked up. She can write her name. She knows all the letters, the sounds they make, and can write them. And is very interested in learning how to spell things. She can count well past 30 - up to 100 if you give her a bit of help after each _____ty-nine. I have noticed that she is catching on to basic addition and subtraction too (though that may just be something she has picked up because I haven't seen her bring any "work" home with that). Yes, I'm bragging a bit about Katy because I'm the Mom and I can :) Kaitlyn has also enjoyed some of the other themes the last few weeks, especially dinosaurs and rocks.

I'm not sure exactly what they did on their last day of school but I know Dari had some fun things planned. Kaitlyn took her blanket and "fluffy puppy" along with her for a "teddy bear picnic." They must have done something with the cute yearbooks Dari put together for them because Katy has a picture and some notes on her signature pages. The yearbook also contains a bit of info about each child, some of the highlights from the year, and some of the funny things the kids have said. That one is definitely going in the scrapbook :)

The graduation cap is now a favorite toy for both the kids. Tyler loves trying it on. His preferred style is the one in the second photo, with the hat covering his eyes. It's a good thing I snapped these photos when I did because Kaitlyn is possessive and now refuses to let him play with it anymore.

Has anyone else noticed that May is a busy month? I hadn't realized it until this year - possibly because my kids were too young for it to affect them before now? But with all the end of the school year stuff, plus Mother's Day and our Anniversary it has made for a very busy blogging month!

Wow, you've been busy blogging. Two since I was here last! So I finally posted Part two about my anniversary all because of you! =) I've been sick and getting Emilee's end of the school year party ready(with two days notice). Not a fun combination.

Cute pic's of your kids!

The hat on Ty is adorable! He's so serious about putting it on. Good luck having Katy home all day everyday!
