Bike Rodeo 2010

Little Miss's school has a Bike Rodeo every year. The local police come out and do a presentation on bike safety and proper bike maintenance and then the kids go through the bike course to practice proper bike riding. This year they did it out on the lawn behind the playground and it was fabulous. The kids had to stop at the stop signs, get off their bikes and walk across the "railroad tracks" and stop at the stop light. Little Miss had a great time riding her razor through the course and she even got her picture taken with her principal, Mrs. M, whom she adores!

Little Miss's Birthday Invites

We are crazy and we decided to hand make and hand deliver Little Miss's Birthday Party Invitations. So last night Little Miss and I sat down and made the invites and this afternoon we delivered them to six of her little girlfriends. She was so excited and had a blast driving from house to house to deliver them :)

The Daisy Scouts clean up

Little Miss is loving being in Daisy Scouts this year! At her first meeting 3 weeks ago she learned about being Fair and Honest and earned the Fair and Honest petal on her Daisy Scout Patch. Last week the girls learned about and earned their "Make the World a Better Place" petal.

This morning, to reinforce that lesson, our troop headed over to the local community center for the Keep "Our City" Beautiful day. They gave us trash bags, recycling bags, gloves, and trash picker upper grabbers and sent us out to a local park to pick up trash. We picked up trash a two local parks, learned to identify poison ivy, and then went to Baskin Robbins for an ice cream social. The girls had a great time and learned a little about caring for our community in the process.

Little Man starts 5 days a week...

I'm sad! We had to move Little Man into the 5 day a week preschool program today. It was such a hard decision but we think it is the best decision for our situation. We had planned on him only going 3 days a week because it is his last year in preschool and because he has the REST of his life to go to school EVERY day. Ultimately, though, we knew that he could handle either program and had to make the best decision for me and school. I simply need more time to STUDY.
So this morning Little Man moved into his new class. It's 5 days a week and he switched teachers and classrooms. His new teacher is great (as was his old teacher) and he does know some kids in his new class already. I'm sure he'll be fine but I'm still sad about having him gone every day.

Little Man has his first day of Preschool today. It's his last year at this school since he'll start elementary school next year. He was super excited, likes his teacher, and I'm sure he'll have a fabulous year!

Daisy Scouts

Little Miss has joined a new Daisy Scout troop this year and we are SO excited! Tonight was her first meeting and she had a ball :)

Ryan took her to the meeting tonight while I was in class. They made a flower bag to bring their supplies to the meetings and they earned two patches.

Here's to a great Daisy Scout year!
