Reading Month Continues

As reading month continues on, Collins Elementary, continues to foster the love of reading, by providing so many fun events for the kids.  This week they had Donuts and Books, but mostly donuts with dads.  Which was perfect for Matt and Lilly, because they both LOVE donuts.  Lilly had fun sitting with her friend Kristen and her 3rd grade buddy Kirstin's older sister Kate ... and the dads.

Halfway Through Reading Month


 This girl has found her love of reading.  Just in the last month she has really found confidence to read more and more.  Some of her favorite series include Brownie & Pearl, Eloise, Pete the Cat, Disney Princesses, Pinkalicious, LadyBug Girl, and Fancy Nancy.  I can only hope she keeps growing her love of reading even more over time.

We Are In A Play!!

The Civic Theater did an amazing job of preforming Elephant & Piggie's "We Are In A Play!"   Lilly is quite a fan of Piggie, even more so that Pigeon.  So, she was excited when Elephant and Piggie got to prepare for a party with the "Squirr'els."  As a side note, I dropped Matt and Lilly off at the theater to partake in all the fun activities they had for the kids, like books readings, photo booth and thought bubble making, while I went to find free street parking, because you should never pay to park on a night or weekend, and paralleled parked the XC90 in the tightest spot imaginable ... on the first try, without back-up cameras, beeping or anything fancy; Mr. Pederson would be so proud.  I wish I would have taken a picture of my triumph, it is the little things you know.

Relaxing Weekend

It is so nice to have a weekend, where there is nothing planned and we can just play.  Emma came over for an hour or so, to pick up her Bootsie Toy that has been in the toy hospital since the day after Christmas.  It appears that Bootsie and a million of her closest friends were all defective.  So, alas we hope we have a working Bootsie, whom I prefer to call Kitty Purry.
