First Day of School 2009

Austin is a Kindergartener. His teacher is Mrs. Gray (who also taught Aidan). I met with his teacher after his individual assessment and she started by saying that Austin was reluctant to talk with her. I said he was reluctant to talk with me too - because we are girls! Austin will warm up to kindergarten. In fact, now he is counting down the days until he gets to stay in class a full day.

Aidan is in 2nd grade. He is very independent, however he doesn't want to make a mistake. He headed off to his classroom by himself but a few minutes later was tapping me saying all the doors were closed and he couldn't find his room. He got distracted by the utility closet and adult bathroom doors - his room door was in fact open and he had friends calling him to sit next to them when he walked in the room.

Mary Janes

Mommy said that Grammy just loves the mary jane shoes. And since we got a whole stash of mary jane looking socks from my cousin, Nevie, I had to get dressed up to show them off!
Hi, Grammy. Hope you like my shoes, I mean socks.

Ah, hello Mother, can a girl get a little help here? I've fallen and I can't get up.
