Ellie was so excited to finally see her picture up there on the Wall of Fame at school.
The kids got their class pictures at school this week - loved this shot of them reviewing them together.
I got my "class picture" too - it had all of the school staff pictures on one page. The kids thought that was pretty awesome.
Another Kindergarten mom invited us to an informational meeting about Daisy Scouts. Ellie had fun playing with the girls while the parents learned more about forming a troop.
I was never in girl scouts, so I have much to learn about all of this. Ellie's interested in getting involved, so I think we're going to give it a try.
Managed to sneak this shot of Graham helping Ellie with her reading homework while we were driving to school - he definitely has a lot of good big brother moments.
Also seen on the way to school this week....Graham hanging on to a letter of apology for his teacher. He got an "uh oh" at school for not following directions first time. He's been a bit embarrassed about it, but did an awesome job of making it right. I was very impressed with the time and care he put into his apology letter.
Ellie waiting for the mailman - here she is watching him make a bunch of stops before getting to us....
She LOVES getting the mail and gets a little bummed when someone else beats her to it.
Fun fact: I REALLY loved getting the mail when I was younger too..actually still do. I guess it's time to pass the torch, huh?
Graham recently bit into something and suddenly had a really loose tooth. He's had a hard time eating, and asked me the other day about going to the dentist to get it pulled out. No need for that though....at dinner that very night, he bit into something and it popped right out. His grumpy attitude was immediately gone!
He decided to write the Tooth Fairy a letter (it's been a week for writing letters - they also wrote their Flat Stanley letters at school this week). LOVE that he asked for something for his sister - he figured she was getting jealous because she hasn't lost a tooth yet.
The Tooth Fairy did bring some mint gum for G, a fruity gum for E, and one dollar - you can make any requests you'd like of the Tooth Fairy, but that doesn't mean she's going to go with it :)
Another week in the books - bring on the sunshiny weekend!
