Callum's last week of Preschool

Had a good parent teacher conference with Callum's preschool teacher Ms Felisa today. He is doing great and more than ready for kindergarten! With much thought, I've decided to pull him out of school a little early so this will be his last week of preschool. I couldn't have been happier with his school this year, he had some really wonderful teachers and made such a great group of friends. We will definately miss them, but on to bigger and better things.....like being a BIG kindergartener! :)

In his school portfolio Ms Felisa had put some pictures of his drawings that he had done throughout the school year. Each month he had drawn a picture of himself and I thought they were too cute I had to post them. Notice how each month they become more and more creative. My favorite one is November, he has such a big smile and a whole lotta teeth, lol. I'm thinking these are gonna be keepers!!

End of the School Year Awards Assembly

                                                      Way to go Avery!!!

Today was Avery's Award Assembly at Temescal. Despite almost two hours of going through first and second grade awards....ugghhhhh, we were very proud of her for her accomplishments. She was awarded a certificate for most improved in Math (yay!!!) and a Titan's Ten Reading Award. All of the kids did great, lots of proud moms and dads today!

The school year is almost over, 7  1/2 days and counting before summer! Wow, can't believe it, 2nd grade is just around the corner! It's crazy to think I will have a kindergartener and a 2nd grader in a few months from now. Which means I will be at school A LOT! All that good stuff, doubled, but I have to say I really do love it!

Butterfly Project

Avery had to do a class project this past week in which she was to choose any insect and to make a life like model of it and then present it to the class. She chose the Monarch butterfly! We had spent most of the week working on the project and putting together this butterfly. I'm not gonna lie, it took quite a bit of time getting everything put together exactly and the wings were definately the most time consuming. We used crumpled tissue paper for the wings and had to glue each one on separately. But in the end we thought the butterfly came out great. Here are some pics of the finished project!

Funny Conversation with Callum

This is a funny conversation that Callum and I were having in the car yesterday morning on the way to his school.We were driving through Montecito Ranch, which is the community where his preschool is located:

Callum: Mommy, this is a nice neighborhood to live in.

Me: Yes, it is but you need a lot of money to live here.

Callum: Me and Avery have money!  (referring to the change in their piggybanks)

Me: Yes, well we are going to need a lot more money that, lol.

Callum: Avery needs to wiggle that tooth!!! (referring to Avery's loose tooth, he knows she will get more money from the tooth fairy soon)
