So, weigh in! I know that Melissa, Erika, and my mom are out of town so they won't be weighing in but everyone else can!
*I had a fantastic time at the Mayor's VICTORY party last night!! Woo-Hoo!!! I hope you all voted! I, of course, didn't take any pictures so I don't have any to share but it was a super fun time!
*Jimmy and I attended the kids' parent/teacher conferences this last week. It was great to hear all the things they had to say about our kids. For me, it reaffirmed my decision that this is the best place for them (Ok, 2nd best) and for what I value as a parent. Jamie has made developmental leaps and bounds over the last couple months and I attribute it to her school experience (and just getting older). She loves having her own place that is solely hers and she has had great opportunities to "flex her autonomy muscles" and do many things on her own. Her teachers said that she is very actively engaged in every aspect of the classroom, she is focused on activities that she's involved in and she has made a friend that she loves to play with. A little boy named Ryan. Apparently they have very sophisticted 2 year old conversations!
Olivia's teachers remarked on how smooth her transition was into the class and how they can't believe how well she is doing. They told us how serious she is about school, how observant she is, and how she has made many friends that she plays with everyday. She loves writing and playing in the "house".
Our first parent/teacher conferences...I'm such a grown up! hehehe
*I kept meaning to take a picture of the pumpkins that we painted and then I came across this one of the pumpkins in progress. Good enough! Happy fall, almost winter!!
