Kindergarten Update

Since we are freaked out, I mean 'concerned' parents, I sent a little e-mail to Kaylee's teacher to check up on her. As you will see, there was no reason to be freaked out/concerned. This is her response:

Kaylee is doing great! She has many friends. The kids want to help her with everything. Sometimes too much, so we've been working on when to help Kaylee. She pretty much does everything on her own though.

I am trying very hard to understand everything she says. Yes, I know it's difficult for her when she has to repeat herself a few times for me to understand and I feel terrible when I can't understand what she needs. But the more I am around her, the more I understand.

She has been very happy at school, especially at recess. Sometimes after recess she is very tired and puts her head down while sitting on the floor, which is fine with me. She goes nonstop at recess. I'm willing to bet she'll get stronger this year! We have worked out a system for recess. She has a group of girls that play with her regularly and they put her walker at the bottom of the slide so she can get up right away then, Kaylee can walk back to the stairs and do it all over again. It works out nicely and they all play very well together. We have a double slide next to each other so she can go down right next to another student which is her favorite.

Junior Trooper

Kaylee got to sit on a real life police bike this weekend at the Harley shop. In addition to sitting on the bike, she also got a junior trooper sticker to wear for the day. She had a great time!

The Fussy Cut

Everyone comes to this blog to get updates on Kaylee and our family. So, some of you probably feel a little tortured with my quilting and sewing posts. I have a new blog to document my quilting journey. Check out my latest quilt at The Fussy Cut.

You'll no longer have to endure updates on hooded baby towels, fabric selections, or quilt patterns...unless you want to!

First Day of School

Daddy followed Kaylee to school so that he could capture some pictures of her first day of kindergarten.

Isn't she just cute!

Kaylee reported that she had a good day at school. (Mrs. Eltzroth gave the same report, so I guess we're on track for a great school year.)

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Kaylee made this pink cake for Daddy for his birthday. She did all the decorating and candle placement herself. It looks beautiful!

Kaylee needed to help Daddy blow out the candles. 30 candles makes a lot flames!
Kaylee did a taste-test. Strawberry cake eaten with a spork is VERY good.

Happy birthday Daddy. We love you!

Motorcycle Mama

Daddy is test-driving Uncle Mike's motorcycle. Here is Kaylee checking it out.

**Note the extremely short hair on one side of Kaylee's forehead. That is from the haircut she gave herself on Saturday evening.
