Life at home...

Well, we're settling into our routine as a new family of four now. Anna Kate loves her baby sister, but sometimes thinks Kinley is old enough to do the things Anna Kate wants to do:) She likes to push her higher on the baby swing.....(I have to keep an eye on that!).... likes to teach her hopscotch (I REALLY have to keep an eye on that!).... and when I turn my back, likes to try to pick her up (I'm a nervous wreck!) We're really having to do a lot of teaching about what little girls CAN do with the baby and CANNOT do with the baby. I'm so happy that she's so loving to her little sister, though, and wants her to hurry up and be a play mate.

Here are some pictures of my two girls hanging out in what we call the "Ladies Lounge" (aka: my bedroom sitting room.) This is where we go to watch Disney movies and relax after school. Anna Kate likes wearing her matching Big Sister and Little Sister shirts. I have a feeling this won't be the only matching outfits they'll have together.

Enjoying my blessings! Bye for now!

Anna Kate's first day of K4

As we get ready to welcome a new baby girl to our home, I also have to come to grips that my 4 year old is getting to be a big girl now. She started her first day of K4 this past week and LOVED it! She loves that she goes to a school where there are big kids and lockers. She loves that they are learning so much every day. After only 3 days of classes, she knows 3 new songs and has brought home artwork and classwork for me to see every day. I think she's going to have a great year at her new school. This is a photo of her just before we left home on day one. As you can see, there were no nerves. She was very excited!
