Kate is in Pre-K this year or as she likes to call it "Free- K" I was incredibly surprised when I learned that she had "homework". Homework at 4??!?! What?!?! The teacher gives it out on Monday and it has to be returned by Friday. I wish I could say that we work on it a little each night but in truth we whip it out on Thursday and she finishes it in 10 minutes. :) I am planting my procrastination seed in her already. Bad mom! Although I do have to say the nerdy school loving side of me likes to sit there with her and look over her shoulder. I love smoothing back her hair behind her ear when it falls in her face (Do you think she will still be ok with this when she is 13?) . And I love how she looks to me for approval when she knows that she did it right. And brother loves to be a big part of it and asks for paper to draw on while Kate works. I love how he sits over there "C-A-R-S-O-N" as he pretends to write the letters of his name. But pretty soon it won't be pretend. Oh I pray that they love school, and love to read, and have a love for learning.
|Yes, that is a Sharpie marker. She will use nothing else for some reason. Not the first and certainly not the last time one of her teachers will think "What was Kate's Mom thinking!??!?!"|
|See that look? I wish I could bottle some of that up. Proud of herself with out an ounce of self conciousness.|
|He told me this was his "happy face."|
|Just wanted to take a picture of the way Kate writes her name at Age 4.|
|Kate was all for a brother sister shot but of course Carson balked.|
