Reagan's Preschool Graduation!

This happened in May. Guess we got a bit behind! 
Reagan finished her first year of preschool in the 3-4 year old class. Her teacher was Mrs. Brenda, and Miss Alexis was the assistant. Reagan loved her class. For the first 3 1/2 months, she went 3 days/week. From January to May, she went on Mondays & Fridays because of my work schedule. 
This was Reagan's first real sense of stability in a school setting. Even though she spent last year at "school," the teachers rotated and you never knew which children would be there. She had a difficult time with the rules at the beginning - apparently hourly care at the CDC can be a free-for-all! - but got lots of good reports as the year progressed. 
- Her class was mostly girls with just a handful of boys.  - Her favorite things to do were art projects and snack time.  - Her favorite playground activity was the swings. - She really enjoyed playing with Cassie, Kelsey & Ethan.

Ethan is to Reagan's right and Cassie is in t…

We Don't Always Watch "Shows"

Before Reagan was born, I was one of those super optimistic moms-to-be. My baby will NOT eat fast food. My kid will NOT watch TV. Yeah, right. Don't get me wrong, we do a good job of interacting with the girls, playing outside, learning and doing projects, but to be perfectly honest, we definitely let Mickey (or Sofia, or Jake, or Henry Hugglemonster, or basically any other Disney Jr. character) fulfill the role of teacher/babysitter. 
Each morning, Reagan quietly walks over to our room, knocks on the door, climbs into our bed, and whispers, "Mommy, can I watch shows?" "Shows" is anything on channel 260 at our house. 9 out of 10 times, we will watch 5 minutes of news and then switch to her channel so I can get ready. But somedays...when Savannah is still sleeping...we skip the "shows" and spend some quality time at the kitchen table. And those are some of my favorite times...

Open Mouth, Insert Foot

But only if you're this flexible...

I love this shot. Cute little toes, chubby fingers, and beautiful eyes!

Weasel Style

I really should start doing this once a week. It could be my "wordless Wednesday" post. She's definitely got a style all her own:)  Colleen, tell your mom that Reagan probably wore this purse for 2 months straight! And that smile...

Spring Gold Cup

In early May, we headed out to The Plains for Spring Gold Cup. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, and there was a good turn out of friends & family. I love going out there because it's a great opportunity to take pictures! Reagan had a wonderful time and even won some money on one or two of the races.  And as you'll see from the pic below, she conned the adults into playing tea party:) Jason had gone out the night before and bought coordinating outfits for the girls and I…how sweet is he?! So we capitalized on the day and finally took a few pictures of the girls and me.  Savannah spent a lot of time with Grandma and Papa, alternating her napping/playing spots. All in all, it was a fantastic time!
