People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

Back to School.... prove to teacher that I'm not a fool:) Yes, I'm still trying to play catch up before all hell brakes loose around here. Regan started kindergarten this year and is doing so well. She is smart and soaks up everything she's learning.

First day of school. (Sophie had to be in the pictures too.)
After she got on the bus we headed over to the school with another mom to watch them get off. We waited for a few minutes and Sophie and her friend, Jessica, had fun picking "flowers"(weeds), and posing for pictures.

Finally made it.
A few weeks ago, Regan came home and was telling me about her bff, Rowan.

Regan: Mom we are name twins because we both start with R and we are color twins because we both love blue.
Me: Oh, so do you sit by her in class?
Regan: Rowan is a boy, not a girl.....and we love each other SOOOOOOO much!!!

So it begins. She wants a play date with him and we just haven't been able to work it out yet. We went to St. George one weekend to pick up a mini van that we bought, and Regan was hysterical that we were not going to have a play date with Rowan. Even the lure of Grandma Joy was not enough to settle her. That's pretty amazing since G-ma Joy is Regan's most fav-o-rite person in the whole world. This must be true love:)
Regan's hair grows so fast. Just a year before she had chopped it and had a boy cut for a while. It got long again and she whined every time I did it so I had it cut the day before. So much easier!
Miss Mary is her teacher and I love her!! She has been so good for Regan and Regan adores her. I feel so sad that we are moving and she will go to a new school.

Sophie is doing Headstart preschool again this year and has the same teachers as last year. She loves it and is a little social butterfly. I asked her to pose for me and this is what she came up with. What a dork.
So I had to start telling her some jokes to get some smiles....
Much better:)
Sophie's teachers told me a story about her and one of her many bff's, Ella. They were going outside after getting a drink and Ella asked Sophie if she wanted to open the door. Sophie said, "Why don't we do teamwork to open it?" Haha, what a girl.
Both girls go to school in the afternoon and it has been really nice to have my afternoons free. I've been able to take a few naps, pack boxes, and run errands. So nice!
