When I am 100 Years Old…

Maggie’s teacher does these exercises during class and then puts all of the papers into a binder and sends the “book” home for parents and kids to read together. They request “fan mail” to be sent back with the book.

I’d heard about this book LONG before it reached my house. Every parent I came across mentioned it…thank goodness…so I was well prepared for Maggie’s entry:

Typical entries were “I will play with my toys” or “I will be working and making lots of money” … I’m kind of glad that Maggie isn’t typical. If you can’t read it, she wrote, “I will get married to Charlie”

Dance Picture Day!

Today was picture day at Maggie’s Dance class. She’s dressed in her outfit for the recital that is on Saturday.

Maggie’s in the 1st row, 2nd from the right.

Way Back When-esday

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!

This picture was taken on May 6, 2005. Burke and Maggie were just over 4 months old. (And DANG was it hard to get them both to smile at the same time!! Burke – not a problem. Maggie? Yikes. πŸ˜‰ )

My First Field Trip!

(As a mom-chaperone, anyway πŸ˜‰ )

I went with Maggie’s class to a local tavern-turned-museum. We got to ride the bus and everything! πŸ™‚

Spring Kindergarten Concerts

Burke and Maggie had their Spring Concerts yesterday. Holy super cute!! I’ll try to get my act together and post the video, but right now all I’ve got are photos πŸ™‚

Maggie

(Yes, she was that happy through the whole thing…but she did know all the words!)
.

Burke

(He did look happier, but I wasn’t able to get a clear shot…and he knew all the words too.)

Higgins 1; Burke 0

(oh, and Higgins 1; Fence 0 – the neighbors found Higgins in their yard this afternoon. I’m hoping that it’s because he found a weak spot…but I suspect he just bounded over. ACK!)

And THIS Makes My Tuesday

Burke came home today very proud of himself. And with good reason!

Right now, their school is running a program where the kids get a paw print (the mascot is a wildcat) when they are caught doing something nice. (I think there might be a bit more to it than that, but you get the idea.)

Burke earned his first paw print today for being the most polite kid in Kindergarten!

When I asked who gave it to him, this was what he told me:

Mrs. Milk Lady told Mrs. Assistant Teacher who told Ms. Teacher that I am the most polite kid in Kindergarten!

Yeah Burke!! πŸ™‚
