Is it almost July?

I can't remember when the days seemed to fly by so quickly...July is almost here and there are a thousand and one things I was planning on doing, started doing, almost did, or haven't quite finished doing and I am ready to get some things done! One of those things was blogging and posting pictures and moving the blog to private (at the beginning of June) and now it is June 28th...two more days until July 1st!

On the agenda today...make baby food for Sela, straighten up the house and return a multitude of things to their original "homes" in the house, run by the bank (and Dutch Brothers to "fuel up" with a Dutch Freeze), and file lots of paperwork. And maybe do some writing...if I'm lucky :) Sela is sound asleep (she'll be ten months old on the first!) and Quinn is playing quietly in his room. To give mama an extra amount of "put the house in order time" Quinn gets to watch Toy Story 1 when quiet play time is over :)

OK, I'm ready to check some things off my list and clear off my kitchen table!

Last day of preschool!

Quinn has had a WONDERFUL time at preschool this year. Ten kids, two teachers and all kinds of adventures, conversations, times with Pastor E and Bernie Bear at Chapel, Musicgarten, making new friends and enjoying the little friends he had already. It has been a really great thing for Quinn...not because he knows the alphabet but because I can see he is more confident, great adults have invested in him, he hears about Jesus at school and with his friends, he has learned about conflict and continues to learn how to appropriately deal with it, and he continues to love to learn.

This was a sneak peek of Quinn on his first day of preschool in September.

I got to visit his class last week and it was so fun to watch him interact!
Here he is looking at books with his friend Ava.

Snack time is always important! While everyone was eating their snacks, Quinn started asking people questions, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" It was sweet!

A little class photo of the crew!

Wednesday was the last day of preschool! A fresh Quinn at breakfast!

So fun to see Mr. Quinn, a big 4 year old, just keep growing and learning and having fun!

The Early Bird

What happens when Sela wakes up at 5:30 am?
