Summer?  Well according to the calendar and the school schedule it is summer!  Now if only the NW weather would get the hint!

I cannot believe Ava is through her very first year of preschool. I am so proud of how much she has grown this past year.  Her attention skills, following directions, taking her time to complete tasks, small motor skills and academically.  She had two AMAZING teachers that have set the bar pretty high.  Mrs. Peach and Mrs.McBride were very loved.  I had such great intentions of documenting this year better, alas best of intentions lead to no follow through.  I would love to say nesxt year I will be better but I am afraid I would be kidding myself.  The one thing I am sorry to not have is a last day of school picture.  So next year that is my one goal a before and after pic.  Ava is losing her toddlerness she is a little girl now.

The one thing I did do is worth sharing so here it goes.  EVERYONE gets a copy of Dr. Seusses “Oh the Places You Will Go” for high school graduation.  Instead I used my copy from high school graduation and plan to have teachers throughout Ava’s school days write messages to her.  I will then gift it complete with years of messages and letters when she does graduate from high school.  So much more meaningful!  I wish I could credit where I got this idea but it is one of those things that stuck in my mind but did not bookmark.  So to whomever… BRILLIANT!!!

Happy Summer!  Next up… Pre-K!

Happy Easter!

I love it… with no formal Easter plans Ava rocked her Easter dress and striped bear PJ duo all day!

The basket: a book, candy, more candy and a toothbrush!  The Easter bunny leaves a new toothbrush every year… candy is fun but healthy teeth are a must!  The Easter bunny also gifted Ava with a child size ergo carrier.  Her little sister has entered the carrier phase of life and now Ava’s BFF black cat can join her in ergo coziness!

The Easter basket paper grass and all are bedtime companions and we are finally coming off our sugar high!
