The Boy's First Day of Preschool

Ashtyn and Josiah did great waking up at 6:15 this morning, however Isaiah is a different story! To say he is difficult to get up is an understatement. The only way I could motivate him was to keep saying after you..., you can put on your backpack. (get up, put clothes on, eat breakfast, brush teeth, etc.) He does love wearing his flame/monster truck backpack! Josiah had a great day, according to his teacher, Grana. She said that he did very well and followed all the directions! On the other hand, Isaiah had a rough day. It may take him a little while to adjust. However, he did love playing on the playground and he says that he is ready to go back again on Thursday.

Ashtyn's First Day of School

Ashtyn had a great first day of school! When I brought her to school, I expected that she would be hesitant to stay and that I would need to encourage her and tell her how much fun she would have. That is not at all what happened. She walked in and sat down at her desk. There was a color sheet on her desk, so she pulled out some crayons and started coloring. I really didn't know what to do with myself so I said "Well, I guess I will go then." It surprised me, but I guess it shouldn't have. She is so ready for school and thrives on strutcure and learning. I waited anxiously all day for 3:30 to come around so that I could go and pick her up! The first thing that she said when I picked her up was "I really like that school." She had a very busy day and was tired afterwards. The only thing that she did not like is that they "went outside 3 times and it was really hot!" She was so excited to go back today and now is excited again to go back tomorrow! Her cousin Micah is in the class across the hall and Ashtyn is glad that she gets to see him at lunch and recess. I know that we are going to have a great year!


Just wanted to let you know that Josiah finishd off the t-ball season with a bang! He finally decided that he wanted to play. From that point on he was doing it all, by himself. It was so cute to see him running after those baseballs and catching them! Isaiah got to keep playing too! They are all looking forward to playing again next summer!
