We had a blast playing at Buny's 60th and Katie's 30th party. It has been awhile since we have all gotten together. I love watching Andrew, Allison and Ashley play with their cousins. They all get along so well and play the same. I am one lucky woman to have married into such a great family.

Today was Allison's first day of preschool as a big bear. And she was beyond proud to call herself a big bear. Being a big bear meant helping the little bears, setting an example of how to be a good student and of course LUNCH BUNCH! Allison has this amazing ability to bond with certain people, and I mean really bond. She develops deeply connected friendships and plays so nicely with these girls. Some of the girls in her life that she has deeply bonded with is her cousin Lexie, her cousin Rebekah, Addison Corcoran, and now she has had a whole year of preschool and has bonded with Kiana. But this year a little bear is joining them and Allison has already bonded with her, Aurora McKenzie. I am happy Allison is able to have such amazing and sweet friends to have at Bayshore Co-op. I am the lucky mom that has been elected as President of the Co-op this year and look forward to having this be our last year at the Co-op. We will have one year off before Ashley starts preschool.

Andrew should have been born August 29th, his due date, but the little stinker wanted to stay put for a bit longer, earning him a first week of school birthday. On his third day of Kindergarten I was able to go to his classroom and watch his class sing Happy Birthday to him (in Spanish of course). I brought cupcakes for his class.
It was chaotic, loud, a bit crazy at times, but what else can you expect from a 6 year old birthday party.

Here we go the first day of Kindergarten!!!
I have no words to describe this day. It is the beginning of his education, the first step in a 17 year journey. A milestone... and it is all starting in SPANISH! Andrew is attending our neighborhood school Patrick Henry where he is participating in a Spanish-immersion program. His teacher is Sra. Medina and she does not speak English to the students, only Spanish. It is going to be an exciting challenge for all of us, but if anyone can lead the way, it is Andrew. I loved walking him to school, in fact we walked with Jessie and Claire and it was just a great sense of community. Allison and Ashley were right there with him the whole walk and were excited to see their big brother go off to the big school down the street.
He has grown up so much it is simply ridiculous how big he has gotten. I will never forget driving him home from the hospital after he was born and showing him our house and now I am taking him to his first day of Kinder. I cannot be more proud of this young boy. He lights up my life.
