Happy Fall!

I cannot believe it has been this long since I have posted something.  Hope everyone is having a nice fall.  The trees in the yard are just beautiful.  We have more and more maples growing in our fields and they just make the yard so colorful.  Love it! 

Besides the beauty of fall, I love the smell and tastes of it.  The kids and I went apple picking with several friends a month or so ago and had a blast. 

Now, I have left the apple desserts behind and have moved onto pumpkin. We had pumpkin waffles last week and pumpkin pancakes for breakfast this morning. I just finished making mini pumpkin muffins for tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, our pumpkin pie is almost gone.  You can imagine my excitement when I found pumpkin english muffins and pumpkin ice cream at the store.  Shh...I have not told them about the ice cream yet.  I promise, I will share it when the time comes...if they want it.  Our poor children are going to be sooooo done with pumpkin soon. Hope they can make it to Thanksgiving!  After that, I can switch the flavors. :)  Mmm...soups, chili, cookies...

Our Pre-K Graduate

Two graduates in one year...oh, my!  :)  Veronica graduated from pre-k last Wednesday, May 23, 2012.  This little gal is so very excited to begin kindergarten in the fall.  As much as I will miss having her with me, she is very ready.  She is so smart and so social.  She will do an amazing job in kindergarten.  There is no doubt.

At pick-up, all the students walked out in a line with their graduation caps on and diplomas in hand.  They were going to have music playing; but, the cd player would not cooperate.  It was precious to see their faces light up when their names were announced.  They each were given a book as a graduation gift from their teachers.  It was all way too cute.  I had to get after one of the teachers though when she told me to hang onto her cap because we would need it again soon.  I covered my ears and said "Na, na, na, I am not listening."    :)  She is just in shock as she is in the middle of helping plan her son's wedding.  I hope these years do not pass that quickly!!!!

Congratulations, Veronica!!!!

What did you wake up to this morning?

As soon as Sydney knew we were awake, I heard..."Can we move the chrysalis to the box?"  I was not even out of bed, nor had I had a cup of coffee.   The last thing on my mind at 6:50 a.m. was the thought of moving the chrysalis.  LOL!  I would post a picture of Sydney's little pet; but, it is quite difficult to see.  Maybe, I will get one when we finally do move it...13 hours after the request was made.  I will, also, need to remember to fill you in on how we got our latest addition.  Good times!

Our Little Ballerina

Her dance teacher handed out medals today.  She even wrote a note saying, "Veronica has done an outstanding job in class this year!  She has great balance and coordination and is a leader in the class.  Keep up the good work!"  Her teacher, Miss Stephanie, even marked that she recommends Veronica for ANY of the classes/mini competition except the younger combo classes.  Great job, Little Dancer!!!!
