Rules, Laws, Notes and Warnings

Kate is a fan of notes, either posted on her door or slipped into my bag.

This one references a holiday concert she had prepared for but didn’t sing in when she was in nursery school.

This is the introduction to a story she started writing.

Kate says that this reads “Introducing My Unicorn”, but I like to believe that it says “Introducing Mr Unicorn”.

We brainstormed a list of things to do instead of being snotty. I keep this in my wallet.

She had this political poster on her door for a while.

She took it down when she decided to open for business.

Besides having a store she thought it might be fun to run a restaurant.

When I asked her to draw something for my new bulletin board at work this is what she came up with.

Back to School 2016!

School started what seemed like pretty late this year, especially when we started seeing back-to-school posts on Facebook in early August. Kate started 4th grade, Owen started 7th grade and Jonah started 8th grade. Next year will be the hellish year of three kids in three different schools, but for the moment the boys are at Eckstein and Kate is at View Ridge.

I’m pretty happy with their classes so far: Owen has two math classes and a French class, which should give him confidence; Jonah has Spanish and an advanced math class, which he enjoys, and Kate got the teacher she wanted. We seem to be off to a good start!
