Grandparents Day!

 Grandparents day is a big deal when you are in kindergarten. There are papers to color, words to find, the chance to show off in front of Memaw, Pawpa and Grandma.
 D's older cousin A also goes to the same school, the older kids went to the youngest kid's homeroom so Memaw and Pawpa didn't have to run all over the school.
 at breakfast
wow, look I'm in a photo!!!!

 Hoopy getting sprinkled with holy water, didn't hurt that D got some too.

D at the firehouse

D's pre school class went to the neighborhood fire house since
October is fire prevention month. She said she liked sitting in the
driver's seat of the firetruck but they wouldn't let her work the siren.

September books

 this was really good, I think it helped that the author grew up in St Louis and and since my family lived in St Louis, it made the book more personal. This was our book club selection.
 can't go wrong with Danielle Steel for a fast read
 Marie was on my nook to read in between my other books. This was interesting because it
started out with Marie as a teenager before her wedding to the King of France.
 The watch was very good, it was a audio book and the characters spoke in the first person to tell their story
 Also a good read, quite interesting story of Lavina Bump life
free book from Barnes and Noble. Uplifting

adventures with grandma part 4

 We found another park to visit on this cool, foggy day. I think we are going to run out of nice days before we run out of parks! Notice the fashion statment with the shoes. I also let her pick out her own outfits to wear which explains the neon green bubble skirt and pink sweater.
 Our schedule for the last several weeks are: eat breakfast, go to the back yard and swing for a hour; go to the library for story hour and crafts; pick up lunch and go to a park for several hours.
 running across the bridge sitting in the middle of the field, goes nowhere, has nothing under it.
 D bravely tried the BIG SLIDE and found out she liked it, she was so proud of herself when she overcame her fear
 at my house we made a jack o lantern
 played with Aunt Becky's Cabbage Patch doll and Mr. and Mrs Potato Head
and had fun with funny glasses!

At the Zoo

 We went to the zoo on Friday. D first bus ride! I followed in the car, since only the kids are allowed on the bus.
 in the children's zoo looking at the aquarium with a classmate
 brushing the goat, such good goats, prodded, poked and petted by scores of kids
 waiting for a glimpse of the sea lion at the new sea lion sound
 watching the kangaroos fight, a first for all of us
males actually following a map
at the hippo view area, kids were fascinated by the fish and turtles.
I'm not sure who was more tired at the end of the day D or me?
