Thursday night Allison and I went to Meet the Teacher night at preschool. Kevin and Taylor stayed home to cheer on the Aggies.
Allison, Jesse and Riley are all in class together again this year. While we will miss Abby we will still see her at church and play dates.
The preschool has a new director and Allison's teacher is new having taught public elementary school the past few years. I'm excited to watch the girls grow and see all the things God has planned for the school.
School starts Tuesday. Allison already has new princess tennis shoes and we are surprising her with a new back pack and lunch box.

Today while Allison and Kevin went for a swim Taylor and I headed to Kroger for down groceries. Taylor had her first ride in the shopping cart without her car seat. She had fun looking at everything and sitting up. She's always so happy, it's so much fun to watch her see new things.

Yesterday was the last day of summer school. They had a performance and all the kids got on stage and sang half a dozen songs. Allison had been practicing really hard at home but was just exhausted after having VBS every evening. She did ok, but spent half the time sitting down.
Allison's wearing a white shirt and teal skirt - the stage lighting washed the kids out for pictures.

Allison has been getting an allowance for a little while - she has 4 chores to do and at the end of the day gets a quarter if all are done. She can also do extra chores to earn more money.
She saved up $10 and Wednesday we went to Target and she made her first purchase - a set of my little pony figurines. It was definitely a proud parenting moment for me.

Saturday I took the girls to Corbin's 2nd birthday. I've been working with Allison to understand that it's not always her party. She picked out presents for Corbin at Target and handed it to him to open. While she seemed slightly put out he didn't want her to blow out his candles she otherwise did very well.
Taylor was very popular and got handed around. I think she was missing daddy because she kept giving Daniel kisses.
