Comments for School Daze
It's probably time for another update. Thank you to everyone who asked about our illnesses. We're all now over the flu but I think we're suffering from all the pollen in the air.
The pine trees have done their pollen explosion and our car and the car port are constantly coated in a yellow-green dust. In the garden, all of my seeds have now sprouted and the berries are in bloom.
Sean: We're still waiting to hear if Sean has been accepted into the Mandarin program. His best friend just got the green light for the program and will be finishing kindergarten in the program so that he'll be ready for the first grade program this fall. Regardless of where Sean goes, the school year starts August 25. I hope before then they will tell us what we need to bring for the first day of class!
In other news, we will be enrolling Sean into three sessions of swimming lessons in Castro Valley. My mother is paying for one of the sessions. Thanks Mom! I need to drop off the enrollment form and payment next Wednesday.
Harriet: I just got Harriet's spot reserved at Sean's current school to start as soon as she turns 2. Her first day will be September 8 and she's thrilled!
Harriet continues to amaze us with her new words. Today she learned: salami and turkey. She's also come up with a few new funny word combinations. My favorite one is: "full fish" which means she wants a cup of milk or juice in her sippy cup. Her favorite sippy cups are Finding Nemo themed, hence the "fish" reference.
Birthdays: Congratulations to C and D to the recent birth of their son, S. Tomorrow Sean goes to another birthday party. After I finish this post I need to wrap the birthday gift. Then on Sunday we are going to the park for the first birthday for Trevor, our neighbor down the hill.
