Clara has been in kindergarten for a whole month now. She's so cool and grown up now. Reading is just around the corner for her, and her written alphabet letters are looking pretty good. And except for having to wake up too early, she loves the whole experience.
Meanwhile, Janny didn't at all enjoy Clara's absence during the day. Mommy just couldn't replace Clara (and Mommy really didn't want to). But she's getting the hang of life with less Clara. She has a good friend (the only other girl) in her preschool class. And Jill is working hard to inspire Janny to learn things and play on her own a bit more.
Our church has a nice tradition of passing out Bibles to new kindergartners each fall. Clara lined up with her friends to receive theirs during the service last month.
Enter Grandpa, always a willing worker! He helped me move the cabinet over about 2 inches. Sounds so easy, right? But we got it done. The fridge now breathes.
Not one to leave bikey things well enough, I have a few items on order to hotrod it up a bit. The coaster hub will be replaced with a single speed freewheel hub (when I'm convinced that she has the hang of the hand brake) and some fancy bmx race tires will replace the flat-proof tires that came with it.
