Layla is on her 3rd week of preschool and she is having a ton of fun, and most importantly learning many new things! There is a huge change in her daily structure at school this year. Last year it seemed like the kids played more. This year they have different stations with activites for math, art, science and reading.
I was feeling crafty and needed a simple task. So...
I got out my handy dandy iron and added this lovely ladybug to this simple black shirt. I found the shirt at Target (of course) for $2.88. The ladybug iron on was $1.49 at Hobby Lobby!
Woohoo! $4.37 for a fun new shirt. It wasn't hard, and I shouldn't even call it a craft, but it was all the 'craft' I had time for.
Layla put on the new ladybug shirt one morning with jeans and said
"I am not so much into dresses anymore, mommy!"
Well all-righty then.
She insists on dressing herself everyday for school and I am good with that!
Hayden & Layla have their share of fights over toys and chairs, but they also have really started to enjoy hanging out together. Hayden loves the wagon, and I really like it when he holds on. He has fallen out several times. Layla would have been in tears at his age if she fell out of the wagon. HC~ he thinks it is funny. Oh me, Oh my!
I'm going to age very fast with this wild boy!!
Layla is loving riding her bicycle. I don't know if you can tell, but on the other side of the fence is a sidewalk/green-belt that we LOVE! Families from all over the neighborhood travel this lovely sidewalk from house to house all year 'round. It winds (spelling doesn't look right) all though the neighborhood from the park to the pool and beyond. We love it, and I really enjoy feeling safe playing on it instead of the front of our house. Our street isn't overly busy, but I still get nervous when the kids play out front with just me watching them. Every once in awhile a crazy driver will fly down the street and I get annoyed with that. The green-belt is amazing and it is much more comfortable for the kids to play on since the weather is much cooler!
Since the holiday season is coming up, which I am SUPER excited about~ I have been snapping shots of the kids as often as I can for a possible Christmas card picture. I love bath time pictures. When the kids have wet hair I think they look identical! This isn't a good example of that, but I thought this one was cute of just their little faces...oh how I love those faces!
He likes to climb into them, fall out of them, ram his head onto the back of them while seated, and
