September has started out as busy as August ended!
We enjoyed celebrating Sydney's birthday today - a fun time was had by all at the Bounce House. Sydney had her first day "alone" at preschool on Friday - Megan will have her first day alone tomorrow. Both gals are so excited about going to school! Praying that they both will settle in and do well - both already know their letters and many sounds and can write their names - in all caps and while they write the letters in order - they could be anywhere on the page. It's a start! ;-)
Charlotte is walking a little farther each day - and we know when she decides to go - we will be in big trouble! The more they "can" do the more they "will" do!!
I had hoped to get Karsten into a Library story time - I know he would like to be in school too! His birthday falls at a time that will put him a year behind the girls. Looks like those classes fall on "babysitter" days though. We will think of something else to keep him interested and knowing that he is special too! At 3 1/2 he recognizes all of his numbers - thanks to his obsession with Thomas the Train! And the vocabulary - who in the world says "I am cross"!! You would if you watched Thomas enough!
Kaitlyn will be back in her speech therapy soon. We have seen a marked improvement in her talking - but as Sydney says, Why doesn't she speak English?? She says Om (mom) Dad, Gama, Ah-ee (Sydney), meow, oof (what a dog says), more, thank you, eese (please) and baby.
Megan and Charlotte spent the night on Saturday. Charlotte had some problems - maybe teeth?? - and was up most of the night. It didn't help that they were working on the freeway behind us and there was noise all night. We did make it up for church this morning though! Megan enjoyed going into her class - she colored a picture and brought home a paper about the story they learned today. On the way to the class - somehow she walked into a door jam and got a nice goose egg! We iced it at home and she is good to go now! Charlotte was not sure about enjoying her class - but she did just fine! When I returned to get her she was playing on the mat with some toys! And grandma - after being up most of the night - didn't think about the infant car seat and put her in the toddler one. Charlotte enjoyed sitting up and facing forward! She was so proud of herself!
We wanted to get a video of Charlotte dancing - she used to just move her fanny around - and now she has some shoulder action going! Quite comical! And she will begin dancing as soon as any music begins! The video has been uploading to this blop for 20 minutes now - looks like it is not going to work!! Michelle and Dee add videos - have no idea why I have problems. Next time!
I will leave on Saturday morning to take Karen back to FL. We pray for safe travel! And I look forward to getting to meet our new great-nephew Aiden in FL. Hope he is ready for some Aunt Karla hugs!!
As always - we count our blessings! God has been so good to us and to our family. Yes we have food allergies - but we all have our arms and legs!
Until next time - don't forget to make a difference!!
