Our Friends!

October 30th, 2008 Comments off

image The friends that we have made are great. The Sorenson’s are wonderful. The husband and wife are close to our age and their kids are our kids age. They have two and Dan and I have 3 and that is the only difference. We can sit and talk just about anything with them and I feel we have known them for ever.

Our kids are best friends and I can see the boys hanging out in high school and the girls be best friends and talk about boys they like and do everything together like sisters.

They are truly friends that we always wanted to have in California but never had the time to do meet.

This is another thing that we could not have if we did not live here in Texas, not to say that we could not find and make friends in a different place but this is where we belong. This is where we were meant to be.

Children and Preschool

October 19th, 2008 Comments off

image All of my three little ones are in preschool.  My kids love to go to school and I love all that going to school does for them. Sometimes we as parents tend to over protect our kids and not expose them to a healthy and needed social environment. School does that for them. My 2 year old was not liking to be in crowed places and of course I did not want to make him uncomfortable so I kept him from crowed places. Since he started school he is more flexible and willing to take chances.

He tries to engage children his own age and older with play and is not afraid of strangers as much.  He does not like me to leave him at school but once he is there he enjoys himself. School teaches them to share and work with peers as group. It teaches them to resolve conflict and deal with situations that are not comfortable or even a little scary. It builds there self esteem and problem solving skills.image

My 2 year old learned something about himself. He learned that he enjoys playing with dirt. He has lots and lots of fun doing that. I would have never let him do that but seeing at school and how much he enjoys himself I am ok with that. I don’t care if there clothes gets dirty with dirt or paint or food from cooking as long as they are discovering, having fun, and learning as they go.

For me it is a financial stretch for them to be in Preschool but it is worth it. There will be better of when they go to school and when things get difficult as adults. They will have learned valuable lessons very young.

Work At Church

October 14th, 2008 Comments off

I am working at the Church. My kids go to the Mother’s Day Out there and I assist one of the  imageteachers twice a week for 4 hours. I am learning a lot and I enjoy being close to the kids.

My 2 year old gets really exited about going to school. I think he misses going on the other days that we are at home. He does not say much but I can tell he just wants to go when he sees everyone getting ready in the morning.

My 4 year old always asks to stay with me in the class I assist instead of going to his classroom. I tell my husband jokingly that he has Mammasitis. But once he is in his classroom with his friends and forgets all about me until he sees me at the playground.

I really do like working at the church. It gives me a little adult interaction that I need even if it is 4 hours twice a week in the center of a class full of 3 year olds.

Halloween Costumes!

October 3rd, 2008 Comments off

imageI It is now October and Halloween is just around the corner. I have three little ones that will be dressing up. My two year old is all set. He will be spider man, that was easy. He does not ask for anything or has a preference for any particular character. My 3 year old is a cute little girls but acts a lot like a boy and she is always more difficult then my 2 year old. But I think a fairy costume will do for her this year.

Her costume is very colorful unlike the pastel colors that most fairy costumes come in, this one I believe goes better with her personality.

Now my 4 year old is very out spoken about his likes and dislikes. The problem with that is that one week he wants to be a knight, another week he wants to be a clone from star wars, he sees the spider man costume his brother has and thinks he would like to be spider man instead.

He was very strong on the knight costume and I thought for sure it imagewas a done deal. I bought the material for his outfit, bought a swore, a shield and needed only the helmet and now he is saying he wants something else. I think that I will make his costume and hope that ones he puts it on he will be happy.

Either way I know he will be happy with whatever is given to him the day off Halloween. He just gets so exited and for him this is a hard decision to make. He is a very grateful and happy child and I do want him to be happy.  But with that, if I find something that is just a “got to have” I may buy something different for him.

For them three Halloween is not even about the candy, well maybe it is for my little girl, but it is mostly about dressing up and the experience of walking down the street and seeing all the parents with their children out on the street that night.

Genesis and School

March 21st, 2008 Comments off

photo-3 Genesis is doing very well in school.  I am very happy.  She is talking, saying more and more words every day.  I think that having her around other kids makes her be at the level they are.

For Easter, she had a really good time.  The kids partied all day long.  Doing different activities and I know she enjoyed that.  She loves to color and to paint and any type of craft that you have her do.  She always tries her best.  She is starting to cut with scissors and that makes her very happy.
