WOO HOO....we now have a kindergartner officially!!! Today was the last day of school and summer will begin tomorrow for the Kennedy's!!! Whew...I can't believe I am saying it, but I am glad school is out! No more hurried mornings for awhile. HOORAY!!!
Here's Cutter making his last walk to his classroom. Christian even got a little last day goodie to celebrate! (He had his last day yesterday.) Here's our kindergartner and his celebratory lunch!!! Congratulations Cutter...we are soooo proud of your good work in Pre-K!!!
It might be a fluke but the other night he said that #2 was coming. So I said you want to go on the potty and he said YES! He got on the potty and VOILA...POOP! I figured I should run with it. I headed out today with Christian to get the goods at Walmart, that would hopefully help with the potty training. We even made it out in underwear to meet Daddy for lunch. :)
The magic aisle with the "potty treats". MMMMM....I want these! We got a train too. I think we are all set. I guess there is NO turning back NOW!!!
Tonight we headed off to Cutter's school for his Pre-K performance and graduation! It was too cute and definitely one of those moments where we think, "where does the time go?" I know I seem to say that alot, but really I can't believe kindergarten is on the horizon?!
The pre-k kiddos put on a good show with singing, diplomas, good food and a slide show. I'll take a graduation ceremony like this any day!
The calm before the storm...Cutter with some of his friends. Christian finally getting to play with the trains in the classroom. (Everyday at drop off he asks to play with them and I say "next time".) The Class of 2010 Pre-K graduates! :) Cutter and his teacher Mrs. Munoz. Cutter and his teacher assistant Ms. Kim. Christian still playing with toys. Really... we can't get a good pic of these two together?! OH, there always has to be ice cream!!! OUR GRADUATE!!! Kindergarten here I come!!!
***SIDENOTE***I know, I know where's the new do with bangs pic??? I had one, but it was my wrong side, so you'll have to wait! :)
Good day....good day! Met up with my long lost peeps, Paige and Jamie, for some bagels and chit chat. (I think they convinced me to get bangs and hit the pool with them this summer.) Jamie even made it extra special by making it a little belated bday celebration for me. :) Thanks for the bagel, Christian's OJ, and the sweet earrings! I seriously just bought the perfect shirt for them!!! I'm lookin' forward to bustin' them through the holes in my ears!
The kiddos all cooperated for a picture. :)
Christian and I got some good park time in with Paige and Elle. (Uh, this is not from today, but I needed a park pic since I didn't take the camera to the park.)
Cutter even scored an ice cream with mom for being a good swim student. (I am not above bribing my kids!)
Oh the joy of swim lessons...UGH!!! First off, let me just say, who knew how expensive swim lessons were!? I DIDN'T!!! I guess you can't put a price on your child's safety!!! Or can you???
Well we wanted to get Cutter right in and going so we found a company, and he started today with Coach Alex. I was hoping the whole guy thing would work in my favor. Cutter needs to be pushed and I was hoping Alex wouldn't coddle him too much. I was right!!! We did have some tears but overall I was pleased with his first attempt back in the water. 5 more sessions to go.
OH...do I see a little kick?!
During this kickboard activity he had fear all over his face and kept saying, "I need to go back to the steps...I need to go back to the steps."
Cutter holding on for dear life!
He finally looks at peace...whew!
I guess I gotta work on my bribe system for Wednesday.
HMMMMM....straws, McDonald's, ice cream...oh the choices???
