Preschool Graduation

Monday night was Carter's graduation from preschool. It was by far, the most comical preschool graduation I have ever attended. As much as I'd like to say my son did not contribute at all to the hilarious-ness of the night, we all know that would be a bold faced lie. However, I will say as I look back on the videos, they do not do justice to how much we were laughing all night. Anyway, here you go! I hope you enjoy!

After the Tooty Ta, I was laughing so hard I had tears running down my face. It was priceless! And something he'll never do again, I'm sure, since I can't even get him to do it at home for me!

As I sit here this afternoon, wondering what to do with myself as half of my family is away with friends, I find myself longing for summer. Most schools in Georgia are getting out of school this week. My kids still have a week and a half left. Britney is in Florida where the weather is hot and humid - just the way I like it. I feel the beach calling my name. Yep, I'm ready for summer.

Snaggle Tooth

Carter lost his first tooth a couple of weeks ago.

He's growing up way too fast.

I can't think of a better word to describe my 8-year-old, Ashlyn. Her imagination is always running wild, and I am amazed at the games she thinks up and convinces Carter to play with her. She catches things in my conversations with Britney that I didn't even know she was listening to.

So, I just have to share the answer she wrote on her weekly reading assessment last week. Her teacher's comment on the front, "Your #6 answer is outstanding!" prompted me to immediately turn to #6 to see what was so outstanding. The question was based on a passage they had to read about a museum and was worded like this:
"Based on what you read in the passage, what would a trip to the art museum be like? Use details from the passage in your answer."

And here is Ashlyn's brilliantly outstanding answer.

"A trip to an art museum would be pleasant, cool and interesting because there are beautiful paintings, sculptures, and other beautiful objects. Some objects are very old. Some may be valuable. Others may have been presious to people that lived long ago."

I was beaming with pride over her answer. She is so much smarter than I realize, and I'm so thankful her teacher took the time to point out that outstanding answer.

But it does make me wonder what kind of comments we'll see on Carter's tests in a few years...
