Last day of Preschool

Patrick, my confident little five year old. You are finishing your first year in what I like to call "practice school"
You have grown so much and learned so much. There were bumps along the road trying to understand different personalities and interacting with them. But there were great joys like your love for learning your letters and sounds and now wanting to write. We made a tough decision half way through this year to pull you from one preschool and place you into another. This decision was made because we want you to know that we will always support the love and care of all people not just what someone's interpretation of the bible may be. You adjusted well, made new friends quickly and really made the transition just fine. I love how thoughtful and inquisitive you are. Always thinking of others and yet proud to stand up for what you believe in. I'll be the one with big fat tears your first day of kindergarten. But tears of joy as your dad and I work to give you your wings.

Last moments in our home

So, this past week we made the big leap to a new home. It was so bitter sweet leaving behind the space we brought our babies home to. Ryan and I danced in our empty living room that last night and soaked in all the memories we could. Patrick loved helping the guys move our things and was a big help. ;) Annika asked the first night in our new space when we would be going home. ugg. gut wrenching. Before we left, I had a photographer come and capture some of our favorite activities as a family in our old house.

Here they are:

Annika loves her babies, bugging her brother, dressing herself, requesting only 1 pony tail in the back of her head, showing her beautiful independent self, helping mommy, and requesting mommy snuggles every minute of the day.

Patrick loves his construction stuff, gets sad when his sister bugs him, loves being silly and making others laugh, playing out in the snow, sledding, getting his own breakfast, combing his own hair so it is flat like daddy's and snuggling up in the afternoons to watch his favorite shows on netflix (bob the builder, chuck the truck, busytown and thomas the train)

Annika woke up this morning and when we told her it was Halloween I'm pretty sure she about fell off her chair she was so excited. That girl loves sweets, this is her day!

First day of preschool

Patrick started his first day at Kingdom kids preschool today. He was so excited. He helped make his lunch, got dressed in record time and was out the door. He even set up the chair in the perfect spot for photos at our house! He walked right in and seemed to know the routine already. We left with a big hug and kiss. So excited for this next chapter in his little life!
