Back To School Nights

In the past two weeks I have had the pleasure of going to the back to school nights for both of the boy's schools. Since they are no longer in the same school it was like a work out of meeting all new people in Camden's school, but it was really neat since he is such a "big kid" now.

I had the pleasure of meeting all the teachers he will see over the school year, with the art teacher totally being my favorite. He seems so into everything the kids will be doing this year. It was really touching!

I love Camden's kindergarten teacher, but then again I have had the pleasure of knowing her for a little over a year since we both worked on a friend's Mayoral campaign last year. I was pleased to learn she would be his teacher. Overall I love his school and the community. I am excited to be joining the PTO as well.

Above is Camden's teacher in the right hand corner. Then the self portrait on the left top. 

Then last night was Ben's turn. There have been a lot of changes at the Pre-School this year as well. Since Ben is just in the Pre-School 3 room (and won't move into the room Camden was in till next year when he is 4.) I got the chance to meet one-on-one with his new teacher Miss Jean. 

They have a lot of neat projects they will be working on for this year, including making cards for children in the local children's hospital for the holidays. Those are the projects I really like to see because I think they are most important at such a young age. 

We will also be going on our first field trip on Tuesday morning, which I will be chaperoning again this year (I went last year with Camden's class on the same trip) with Addison.

These great pictures were all around the classroom. I really love that this year the teacher is taking time to decorate the room with lots of pictures of the kids in the class. Although she did tell me how hard it is to get a picture of Ben. Something we have also been working on at home recently!

Oh and in other Ben news, we are ready for underwear! 

I can't wait for Halloween either!  We were going to do a theme for all of the children. Camden picked out Spider man for a costume this year, Ben decided on Iron Man because they are both learning a new love for super heroes. We were looking for a Wonder Woman costume for Addie, but all we came across were too big, and I wasn't about to spend $60 on Etsy for one.

So by default she is going to be Cinderella. She is IN LOVE with Cinderella since we bought the diamond edition of the DVD last week. She goes to bed with it EVERY night.  Disney store had 40% off the costumes online, and free shipping so that was a go!

I can't wait to post pictures!
