Ava's first day of school was a combo of good and bad. She had what she said was a good day, but there was one bad thing that she didn't like. It was also her first day riding a school bus which was kind of overwhelming to her.
When I went to get her at the bus stop (she gets off the bus at the high school), I was worried because she didn't get off immediately. Apparently she had sit in the back and was by the window with a middle schooler sitting beside her. The bus driver went and got her out of the seat and she finally got off. I had a second of panic when she didn't get off with the other ones, but it was fine.
It was like pulling teeth to get her to tell me about school, but she was excited talking about a book they had read called The Kissing Hand and telling me what the story was about and showing me a handprint from the day.
Then she also told me about the not-so-good. A little girl had pulled her hair during carpet time and when Ava told her teacher, the teacher ignored her. This just broke Ava's heart and she translated that into her teacher not liking her. Now Ava can be very dramatic, but it goes one of two ways. Maybe her teacher didn't hear her or maybe she did ignore her because she was just tattling. My thoughts are that on the first day how hard would it have been to say, "Boys and girls remember we keep our hands and feet to yourself." Then Ava would feel that justice was served and it wouldn't have been a huge deal.
On day 2 of kindergarten Ava didn't want to get out of bed and cried that she didn't want to go to school. It wasn't fun and her teacher didn't like her. This has NEVER happened. She has always loved school and wanted to go. Poor thing. But day 2 turned out better (except I had to go and get her off the school bus) and day 3 was great. Hopefully the bad of day 1 will fade into the background and she will be a happy kindergartner once again.
Tiffany is the lady of the manor. Teacher by day and Mommy/ Wife/Photographer/ Cook/Maid/Scrapbooker/TV watcher/ Jack of All Trades by night. Bradley says I have way too many hobbies and I need to put some aside. I love to take pictures and scrapbook our lives. I used to read alot, but I find that I don't have as much time as I used to. I am entranced by my DVR and because of it I watch way too much TV! I also tend to make jokes in uncomfortable situations.
This man of the house enjoys all things sports related. There appears to be no season that he doesn't enjoy. I think the only sports he won't watch are golf and soccer. My guy is a fan of The Price is Right and Andy Griffith. During the day you can find him at work in the family water business, and at night you can find him watching the news and Wheel of Fortune. He is an excellent story reader with multiple voices and a pro at making stuffed animals talk and dance.
Ava is 5 years old. She is a kindergartener this year and has been giving them a run for their money. She enjoys Disney Movies and playing, especially with her Build a Bear, Flower. She loves reading and is starting to listen to chapter books like Junie B. Jones. Ava loves all stuffed animals and if possible would own a zoo full of stuffed animals. Her imagination is really starting to take off. She is an excellent big sister and a complete drama queen! She takes dance and cheer and loves going to church for her bible study class.
Harrison (aka CAPTAIN DESTRUCTO) is almost 2 years old. He is a messy eater who prefers empty carbs. He loves to snuggle and I call him a cuddlebug. He also likes to put things up his nose. :( He enjoys playing with Ava and going outside. He loves watching the movie "How to Train Your Dragon" and loves to torment his sister and the girls at his Daycare. He can be super sweet, or super fierce. He keeps me laughing and on my toes.
