New Glasses for Little Sister

Little Sister is sporting some glasses after being referred on by the school. Vision screening has come a long way. Now preschoolers have pictures of their eyes taken that are looked at by The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. 90% of the children who are referred on require treatment. So, Little Sister is quite proud of her new specs. We hope they help her!

4th Grade, and Other Things - by Big Sister

Hi. It's been a while since I've last blogged. This year my teacher is Mrs. Frey and I like her a lot. Today we started our leaf project. We have to make power points on them and today we took pictures of leaves. Almost a week ago we got to see Max and Ruby live at the McCleod center. If you don't know who Max and Ruby are they're bunnies from Rosemary Wells' books. This past Wed. Middle Sister and I did a cheerleading clinic and learned a dance. On Fri. night we got to preform after the band at halftime. If you don't know Middle Sister has her own blog now! She is very excited so come and check it out if you haven't. You can click here to see it.

A Birthday and Back to School

Today was a big day at our house. Little Sister celebrated her fifth birthday - and it was also the first day of school. All sisters were happy with their teachers and first day back and are ready to go to school tomorrow. Little Sister handed out rainbow cupcakes in honor of her birthday and even stopped at daycare to give some to her friends there. The school year is off to a great start!

No More Day-care

It's official. Our family is done with daycare. Just to help Karen remember how much we appreciate her taking care of us for six and a half years, our Grandma helped us out and made a beautiful flannel quilt for her.

Little Sister and Sammy

Little Sister is in love with our new dog, Sammy. Every day she wants him to wake her up. She kisses and hugs him before she goes to bed or leaves for school or daycare. She is even patient with Sammy when he has accidents in her room.

An Interview with Little Sister about Sammy

Mom: What thing do you like the best about Sammy?

Little Sister: Playing with him.

Mom: Is Sammy ever naughty?

LS: Yes, when he pees and poops on the carpet.

Mom: Do you think we take Sammy back?

LS: No.

Mom: Is there anything else you'd like to tell us about Sammy?

LS: I like Sammy. Leah and Chloe wanted a dog, but they don't take care of Sammy. I'm the only one who takes care of Sammy. They just play their DSi. No petting. No kissing. I'm the one who likes him.

Mom's Spring Break, Day 1

What do Mom and Little Sister do when Big and Middle Sister are at school? Go and get henna tattoos. Mom is pretty sure we will have to make another trip to Waterloo in the next few days so the other two girls can match. Isn't Little Sister's beautiful?

Big Sister at the Bridal Show

Today was the bridal show in Waterloo. Make A Wish had children whose wishes were granted be models for the different bridal shops. In addition the girls were able to get their hair done by a local stylist. Here's big sister all dolled up. The lady she is posing with was her bridal/bridesmaid escort. While talking to her we found out that on Monday she will be leaving to begin teaching in South Korea at a private school. Very interesting.
