First Days of School

It's hard to believe that August is here and school has started. Caitlyn is in the 3's Class at her preschool now, and she is loving her new teacher, Ms. Denise. She is becoming so much more independent as she now gets out of the car with excitement and walks down the sidewalk with confidence. It's really hard to believe she will be four years old next month!
Ready for Preschool Orientation

Allie is 19 months old now and learning new things every day. This is such a fun age and stage (my personal favorite), and I love to watch her vocabulary and skills grow. She is just as verbal as Caitlyn was at this age, and she will do anything to get a laugh. She loves to swing, play hide and seek, swim, and watch movies (well, the first five minutes, anyway). While Caitlyn is in preschool, Allie gets to stay home with me - lucky her! I'm enjoying having some one-on-one time with her and getting to know her without anyone else vying for my attention.

Such a ham!

First Day of School

 Caitlyn has been asking for a while now to take ballet classes, and we have found a class that is just right for her. She is beyond excited...the class doesn't start until the end of August, and she asks me every day how many more weeks until it starts. We bought her required outfit, and she wants to wear it every day. I'll be sure to post more pictures once she gets started.

 I noticed that Allie is not wearing shoes in any of the pictures above. That seems about right.

Your girls are PRECIOUS!!!!! so glad you posted some pictures to see how much they've grown. I wish we lived closer so we could get the girls together. I think they'd have a ball! :)
