Quickly adding pictures...so many to share but I'm only picking a few and I'll be as quick as I can because I am tired.
Katie got glasses! Surprise! I knew when I wrote the last post but wanted to keep it a secret until she had them. We found out when we had an eye checkup, recommend as standard procedure when we got her immunized this summer. Minor farsightedness. She is thrilled. Loves them. Picked a very mature pair. We also ordered another different pair (the store was having a back to school deal) with transitions lenses, for when we would normally want to have the option of sunglasses. Thank goodness for Ben's benefits...for both pairs it only cost 50$ out of our pocket. Phew.
Sam is also doing well in school...chatting about how she knows the days of the week and singing songs from school. I am still sitting in the hallway and have finished knitting a baby dress (for our goddaughter...Happy First Birthday Baby N!), 2 pairs of leg warmers and 2 pairs of slippers for the girls. And now I have started a tunic style sweater for Katie.
And, you know what I love...(brag time)...both sets of teachers have already commented that the girls are doing so well in school and that they are wonderful role models for other students. Specifically hat they often ask the other students to sit/listen/etc like Katie/Sam...so nice to hear. Anyway. I'll try to post again soon, I know I had a good few days and then got quiet again...it's just school busy...Katie gets to the bus stop at 7:35 4 mornings a week. And we have already had two evening events at the school.
But things are good...oh so good!
