  • My daughter got to ride most of the big kid rides at the fair, too, although she was still too short for the bumper cars. She went on a field trip to a butterfly museum this summer and actually held a live tarantula!

  • He wrote a word (besides his name) without tracing for the first time last week. At least it's the first I've seen him do it! He wrote "train" lol.

  • my 5yr old will be going to his first day of Kindergarten in less than 2 weeks! This summer he went on a few day trips to major league baseball games, he took his first swim lessons, first time he rode his bike without his training wheels, or needing help on/off and stoping.
    My 3 year old was actually able to ride the kiddy rides at our local fair, she got her first pair of roller skates, and she went to her first VBS and didn't have to be with the "little" kids. She also had her first swim lesson and will get to start soccer this fall!!
    I have an 8 month old daughter as well and she is doing a ton of new things! She will walk with a push toy, but prefers to use my other daughters little stool for her toy vanity, she now says mama, dada, bye, what, wow, yea, and oh. she stands all by herself, she is getting her two top teeth in... i could go on and on and on :)
