The girls have been super busy this week with all kids of activities as we make the whirlwind round of activities to wrap up the end of the year. Thankfully, 2 of Nate's appts scheduled for this week were canceled and rescheduled, freeing up some much needed time to shuttle the girls around.
Both girls have been in an after school program one day a week at a local church with quite a few of their friends. They have had a blast in this program the past couple of months, as they work on crafts, snacks, and a little play/singing performance. Wednesday night was the big night of the performance, and both girls were giddy with excitement all week long leading up to this night. It was so much fun watching them sing and dance in front of the audience.
I know I say this a lot, but they are getting so big! That fact stops me in my tracks every once in a while as I see them tackle so many circumstances with maturity and less need for help.
Emma's Thanksgiving feast with her kindergarten class was yesterday. We had the same feast with this teacher 2 years ago when Abby was in her class, so it was fun to be able to participate with the adorable pilgrims and indians once again.
Emma has a really great class this year. Being able to volunteer for a few hours each week, it has been such a joy to get to know the little personalities of the kids in her class. And it has been an even greater pleasure to see her grow intellectually and develop unique friendships throughout the year. I often wonder what these little kindergartners will be doing 20 years from now. I can't wait to find out.
