First Day(s) of School!

Well, the girls have both had their “first day.”  And they are quickly getting settled into the routines.

Abby is now in Third Grade.  Such a big girl now.  She’s growing up way too fast.  Third grade brings a brand new backpack and a new teacher, Miss Horner.

Sarah is doing a Pre-K program in the afternoons at the same pre-school that Abby attended.  She also has a new backpack and a new teacher, Mrs. Rhoad (Abby had her for Four-Yr-Old preschool).

Little Buckeye Children’s Museum

Last month we went to Mansfield to have some fun with our adoption friends.  This was a really great place for the kids to play and explore.  We’ll be heading back there again!

They had many areas of discovery.  This was set up to dig for fossils.  The little guys just wanted to play in the mulch.1


Playing in the bank.4

Beauty Shop – that mannequin head has seen better days.5

And then they discovered the water table!!!67

Abby curling some hair.  I think she’s seen Mama do it a time or two.8

The science station – mixing “chemicals.”9

And Tommy is still at the water table.  That rain coat did absolutely no good at all.  The sleeves were conduits to run the water down to his clothes.  He was soaked!!!10

Always fun to dress up!11

Then we walked down the street to enjoy a few rides on the carrousel.  Such a fun day!12
