First day of Kindergarten

Calla loved her first day of school! She is such a caring, attentive, intelligent, curious, friendly, sweet, kind girl that I just know this is the school and classroom for her. I only look for positive things to come, well except when her teacher calls to tell me she talks too much! ;)
Drake felt left out and had to get in on her pics this morning too!

Fair Time!!

We had a wonderful few days visiting my parents and going to the local fair!! Calla got to ride in an ambulance and throw candy for the first time and she LOVED it! Both of my kiddos also had the time of their lives riding the rides! It was great to have Papa there to assist with getting both kids where they wanted to go to ride, I couldn't convince them to always go on the same things, wishful thinking I guess!

The Wonderful Family Vacation to Oz

We took a quick trip to Omaha to see the Oz Exhibit at their Children's Museum. It was so much fun! I managed to pack the car without Calla knowing anything and we took off. She kept asking lots of questions about where we were going and finally about York she finally asked, "Did you plan this trip before we left?" up to that point we had her convinced we were just out for a drive to find a new pool to visit! While there we got to meet Dorothy and the Scarecrow, Princess Lily was there and Calla enjoyed her tea party, we also got to play on the playground equipment from an old Richmond Gordman's store. The water area was what Drake really enjoyed! The pizza parlor was cool too! There were of course tears when we left because we had just not been there long enough, 6 hours is a short amount of time to a 5 year old!!
