Second one down

So second grade is done! It was a sad day for Ani, therefore it was a sad day for me. She didn't want to say good bye to her teacher, Mrs. Monceaux. We have been blessed with wonderful, caring teachers for her thus far. I'm greatful for those with a gift to teach. Not just to teach but to inspire, love, encourage and challenge! My sweet girl has grown so much and is embracing this new chapter of our lives. Our days will not all be easy as move from the familiarity of our Virginia home to the vast Denver horizon. However, we will be together and I am a better person for having these beautiful little people in my life. I hope one day they can say the same about me.

Ch ch ch changes

Changes come big and small, fast and slow, happy and sad. I think we have all of them rolled into the last month. First today. My little boy is growing so fast I cannot catch my breath to even say slow down. Today he went pee in the potty, twice! He loves candy and sweets so I think I will have to find a healthy sweet treat to keep him motivated. As for my sweet pea, she finishes second grade tomorrow. She is so sweet and so mature. I just can't stand the thoughts of third grade. She lost another tooth yesterday and got a silver crown from the dentist. She has been identified as gifted in reading and math. I always knew she was special and now the schools will know it too! I know I push her so hard, as I want her to be great and get those things she wants in life. For now, I hold them in my arms, we do tye dye, make cookies, and sing silly songs off key as drive from place to place. It has it's moments of frustration, but I wouldn't change a thing! I love these guys! Pictures tomorrow!
