Avery graduates from Pre-K (and birthday stuff too)

First a little than and now... she has grown up so much this year. She still loves school just as much as she did that first day. But she had so much nervous excitement that first day, now it is more of a calm confidence. Well sometimes calm.
(I don't know why that is showing up as a link but I'm too tired to fix it)

Stories by Avery

First let me explain what we were doing when these were taped. Harrison had a planned a whole surprise party for Avery at Grandma Neenie's house. We were supposed to change and go swimming so he could do the balloons and make a cake with Grandma. But he was mid cake creation when we finished changing so I got stuck trying to keep Avery in the bathroom. I asked her to make up some stories and she wanted to be taped... they're short, she is more into seeing herself than the actual taping part but they made me laugh.

She's 5!



Well technically not until Monday but we started today. We had pizza and cupcakes in the park with friends... and I think I might have developed a mild ulcer while watching the weather radar willing the ugly orange blobs away. And it worked! Despite forecasts of ugly storms we had light rain for a while then none... no lightning and rain doesn't bother kids who are playing the water. Avery was thrilled.
