Susanna had kindergarten orientation a couple of weeks ago. Her dad had to take her because I was teaching preschool. This girl is ready to move to the "big girls' classroom". She is so excited to go on the bus with everyone next year. I have loved watching her learn in preschool this year. She is very bright and is so eager to learn. Being able to go to all six sessions of my preschool every week this year has really been beneficial for both girls.

Kerrie turned four last Tuesday.
Life is a little crazy around here and we wouldn't all be together at home until 9 P.M. so we had her party at 7 in the morning.
She opened some gifts,
took a spin on her new big wheel,
and ate a delicious breakfast of rice, sausages and fried eggs.
It was a beautiful day. Kerrie shared birthday treats with 2 sessions of preschool. A couple of the girls brought her gifts. Very sweet. It was sunny at recess and she had a hard time keeping her eyes open for pictures. She is still sassy with her eyes closed.
Kiley made her a yummy pink cake.
Happy Birthday Kerrie!
We love you.

We have been having beautiful weather lately. These two girls love playing outside. We have this post (I don't know what it is for) in our back flowerbed. The big girls have always used it for a microphone. I looked out the window the other day and saw Kerrie and Susanna singing away. I like how seriously they are taking their performance.
They also love jumping on the trampoline.
I had two funny comments from preschoolers today. We were out for recess and one little guy was working on zipping up his jacket. I told him his kindergarten teacher would love if he could do that. I told him she would get tired if she had to zip up 25 jackets every recess. He said, "Yeah, it would be better if she only had to do 24."
I was testing everyone on what letters they know this morning. When I held up the card they could kind of see the picture on the other side. I was testing the funniest kid I know and when I held up the letter "c" (picture of a cat on the other side) he said "Meow". The best part was he said it high and squeaky like a real cat.
Teaching preschool is the best job!

Last week was Dr. Seuss week at school. The last day was dress up as a character or Dr. Seussish. We went for Dr. Seussish.
These two do not like to ham it up at all.
We also had a Dr. Seuss day at preschool. Everyone wore pajamas, we watched a couple of Dr. Seuss movies and made these cute Dr. Seuss fish.
