The 100th Day of School

Today was the 100th day of school. Kelly had so much fun doing 100 stuff today. I can't believe school is more than 1/2 way over this year. Kelly loves school and is becoming a really good reader. I am surprised at how much she can read. She had to put on ALL of her 100th day things for a picture.

McKenna has this thing with BIG bowls. Whenever she has fruit snacks or, chips, or dry cereal, or whatever, she wants to put it in a BIG bowl so she goes to where the storage bowls are and finds the biggest one. This morning I found her helping herself to some Kix in a BIG bowl.

Just a group picture the other day. Kelly had just eaten a chocolate cookie so her teeth are black and lately she loves the crazy smiles.

Kelly tries to get the kids to dance or do poses. She tries to be the leader which they can only handle for a while. This is her with Sam.

I guess while I was sleeping Saturday, the girls unloaded and loaded the dishwasher all by themselves. Cory got a good picture.
It is funny what we LIKE to do when we are little.

Camille's New Tricks

Since Camille has been able to crawl for almost 3 months now, she never really cared about the stairs. For the past few days they have started to become more interesting. McKenna was sure it was okay that she could go up them so she lied to us and told us Camille was not on the stairs. A few seconds later, the thump came!!

I think McKenna understands now.
Since we have a square banister at the bottom and round at the top, a gate will not fit there. I guess a chair will have to do for now.

I heard whining from the other room and came to find her on the steps whining because she could not get down.

Of course the others had to get in on the action.

Camille is also starting to try and fit into places she doesn't belong in. She got stuck in between the desk and the file cabinet and couldn't get out. I thought it was funny!

McKenna made me take this one. She loves HER Camille. Sometimes a little too much.

So, most of you know that I babysit everyday. I watch a little girl that lives across the street. She comes over in the morning before school for about 1/2 an hour and then I take her and Kelly to Kindergarten. Ashlee stays at school all day for another class so I pick her up later at 3:30. She is a very easy girl to watch. She can be really quiet but other days she laughs like crazy.

Also, everyday there are 2 boys that come over and stay from 3-5:30pm. It is just a few hours and the kids play pretty good together.
Sam is 5 and 1/2(next to Kelly) and Joe is 4( next to McKenna). They are brothers and their parents work schedule overlaps by a few hours so their dad drops them off and their mom picks them up. McKenna and Joe seem to get along VERY well. Sometimes too well that they get into mischief.

Ashlee has an older sister, Allysa, who is 9. She comes over on no school days or other occasions when her mom has something to do. I am supposed to be watching her but most of the time she is watching Camille. She LOVES her! Well, she loves babies in general.
