Back to School

Why does time have to fly so fast? It doesn't really seem to matter if you are having fun or not. How in the world did I suddenly become the mom to a fourth grader and another kindergartner. Well I guess that I must have blinked or something. I am very pleased with how enthusiastic my girls are about school and learning. They both have very fun teachers and the outlook for this year is definitely good. I cannot tell you how nice it is that evenings for us are spent with reading more than television. I am so grateful that their grandpa reads to each of them almost every night and now Serenity is reading to Cadence on top of that. I feel that they are creating memories that will serve them well throughout their lives and will bond them closer and closer to one another. Serenity got a small bookcase for her birthday and I was thrilled with how excited she is to fill it with books that she loves. Reading can be a contagious bug too, Cadence wants a bookcase of her own too.

We should all have a Grandpa to read to us every night! How cool is that?

Yay for learning and enthusiasm! Glad to hear that your girls like to read :)

Ok. Now I was just over there a week or two ago and Reni did not look that old. That picture makes her look so grown up. We just bought another book case too. I was sick of our books gathering in piles on the ground in the library. I don't know what we'll do when we move from this big house to an apartment in San Fran in the next year or two with these 4 bookshelves. We still have a few boxes in the storage too.
