Love this preschool! Love the teacher. Love the art projects. Love that Sophie is writing her letters so well and I haven't hardly worked with her. Love carpooling with Bridger and Spencer. Love that both those boys are in touch with their feminine sides and are so fine playing barbies, kitchen and anything else Sophie wants to play. And could there be any cuter bunch of busy bees than this?

Post-surgery. Coming off the anethesia was a nightmare. After 50 minutes of this I vowed to bring Steve with me if there was ever a next time (which there was three weeks later to get tubes put in her ears....AAAGGHH again). I finally asked the nurse if I could leave even though she had not stopped crying. I think it was against protocol, but they seemed quite relieved to get rid of us! As soon as we walked out of the recovery room, she calmed down and fell fast asleep in the car.

After a huge meal at Red Robin, including a little nibbling on her new birthday toys, we headed over to Krispy Kreme for dessert. Again, we celebrated for Capri seeing as she was not in the greatest of conditions! We have absolutely LOVED having this little monkey in our family. She brings such joy.

This is quite the debate among parents of our generation. Gone are the days of just making sure you know the parents before you send your kid over for the night. I was talking to my Dad about this subject and he remembers being very conservative with sleepovers, but I sure do remember sleeping over at ALL my friend's houses. Slumber birthday parties were always the best, and they were MOSTLY harmless! Maxwell and Sophie have never had a sleepover, with the exception of family, until a month ago. We are great friends with the Johnson Family and they have a boy Maxwell's age (Kaleb) and a girl Sophie's age (Aubrey), which makes a sleepover swap just perfect. We had the boys at our house and the Johnsons took the girls. Max and Kaleb played quietly like champs in the bedroom and even fell asleep by ten. We asked them in the morning what they did all evening and they said "played legos, read comic books, and then there was nothing else to do so we went to sleep." Perfect sleepover! From what we hear, the girls played hair salon and dolls and all things girly. Aubrey fell asleep by 9:00, so Sophie snuck out of the bedroom and joined the parents for some ice cream. That's my little night owl!

Maxwell is in 2nd grade with Mrs. Stone, who is also fantabulous. Maxwell is an awesome reader, speller, mathmetician, you name it he's good at it! How is that for some major bragging!
