My blog was looking a little dreary.... and I remember changing it to that....a hard time in my life....a valley experience. But I am making my way back into the light! And I think my blog should reflect that!!! So here are my dandelions back!!!!

Kindergarten Round Up

Monday we took Chatham to Kindergarten Round Up. At Clyde Campbell, it really a parent orientation, but you bring your rising Kinder and they get to spend a few hours with the TAs in the Kinder classrooms and on the playground. I have asked and asked what Chatham and the other kids did- but the only info Chatham gives is "the playground has a rocket ship, and you can climb on the hood", "I played fireman with a boy named Zack", and "the teachers name was Miss Pickles". WELL, I'm glad he had fun on the playground but WHAT ABOUT THE CLASSROOMS! and just for the record "Miss Pickles" is actual a teacher assistant named Mrs. Peppers! My kid cracks me up!!!!

All in all, it was very good for us to go- Devin got to see his old elementary school and show me around, I feel much more at ease about letting Chatham go (there were NO tears!!!!), and Chatham is SO excited to start BIG school in the Fall. Now we go back in two weeks for his Dial Screening- EEK!

A Tea Party with Cinderella

The NewArt Ballet School in Newton is putting on Cinderella. The cast put on a tea party for little girls in the area. Harper and some of her closest buds got ticket and went.

The girl who is dancing as Cinderella was SO sweet, and SO good with the girls. They decorated a picture frame and got a picture taken with Cinderella to put in it, they were playing the Disney version of Cinderella while the girls ate cupcakes and had juice and a beautifully decorated table. Then they went into the auditorium and watched a small clip of the actual ballet.

Harper had so much fun!

 Here they are in matching Mickey/Minnie Jammies!
 Character day!
Hat Day! (It was actually silly hat day, so Chatham insisted on wearing his hat backwards)

Cooper River Bridge Run

 I ran the Cooper River Bridge 10 K in Charleston, SC and had such a fun and relaxing get away with the girls. My Aunt Carrie, Linda, and Gina did the race with me and Mom and Lisa came along for shopping and support!
 The weather was BEAUTIFUL!! Even at 5:40 AM when we had to be out the door to make our shuttle.
 I loved the costumes and "celebrities" that were there to show support. I finished my 6.2 miles in 1 hour and 10 1/2 minutes!!

HELLO?!?!?!....anyone still out there??

I have been looking a back at this blog and love all of the sweet times I have been able to capture while Chatham and Harper are growing. I kind of hate I missed such a large chunk of Harper's baby years- but I am back! Hopefully on a regular basis!!
 I mean LOOK at how big she has gotten!! Chatham is about to start KINDERGARTEN!!! If I don't start writing things down again I am never going to remember all of the silliness we are living!!
 We celebrated visiting Clyde Campbell for the first time with Chatham, that is where he will start kindergarten this Fall!! He has done the doctor visit screening and passes with flying colors (minus the fact that the patch in his ear has three SMALL tears in it). He passed his hearing and seeing test, and even got 2 out of 5 on the depth perception chart (which is above average for his age).
 Sweet Frog is our go to place for celebrations!!
