Reading… Kindergarten Style

Eric seems to have found the “keys to the castle” when it comes to reading…because suddenly, he is doing an amazing job of it! For a while now, he has been bringing little poems and books home from Kindergarten, and he reads them himself. He has been wanting to read more books, but all of…

Irrational Mommy Fears…..Part II

I’ve talked about irrational Mommy fears here before, but now I have a whole new set of irrational fears now that Lex is in full-time school. When I drop him off he has to walk all by himself to his line outside his classroom door. That’s when I stand there and wait until he walks…

Lessons from Kindergarten

We are learning an awful lot from kindergarten – *we* being me and Will, not Troy. Sure, he’s learning quite a bit, but the lessons seem to be more for us than anything (me more than Will though). 1) I am a control freak. Yep. I had an idea I had issues, but until Troy…

I Did Not Expect This

Well, it’s actually coming. I knew the day was approaching, but until today – Meet the Teacher Day – it hadn’t sunk in fully. I have been very excited for Troy to start school. I cannot wait to see what he learns, how he does, who he becomes friends with… I, of course, am a…

Yes, we are busy planting vegetables and flowers, retrieving outdoor toys from the garage attic, and prepping for backyard barbecues… However, spring is also a time of curriculum planning, and in the public and private schools, the push for Kindergarten round-up….

Mother’s Day, Surprises, Shots, and Flooding

(The title isn’t in order. lol It just sounds better that way.) I hate surprises. Because of that, when John called me Friday and told me that all three kiddos would be doing sleepover – whether they wanted to or not – at my mom’s, I was on the suspicious side. John doesn’t make plans…

Lots of exciting things going on around here. I have my first wedding shoot 2 weeks ago. And yes, I’m still…

My heart’s breaking for my boy.

So, Zach came home from school totally heartbroken today. Apparently, during recess Zach’s good friend since school last year told him that he’s not only not Zach’s friend anymore, nobody else is, and nobody likes him, and that he couldn’t play with them. I’ve been trying to convince him that this isn’t true, but Zach…

My ‘baby’ is a kindy kid!

*Wipes away tears* Yesterday Gaby had her first day at Kindergarten!!!!  For those of you who aren’t from NZ, our kindergarten is between ages 3-5, and (generally) on a child’s 5th birthday, they start primary/elementary school.  Regardless of that, it is still Gaby’s final stop before being a school kid – and that is such…

Preparing for the first day of kindergarten

It’s not a big deal. Ok, so it is. I don’t care if he went to school last year. No one other than me, Zach, John and some immediate family took the fact that he went to pre-k last year seriously. I mean he was actually at the elementary school Mondays – Fridays 7 –…
