Madison has a different confidence about her at school. Her teachers reported yesterday and today that she is confident, being a leader and using her big voice when prompted. She is playing with everyone and helping some of her friends who are new at school. Mommy and Daddy are proud of her and are happy to hear about the skills she is building that will help her be successful when she starts kindergarten.
Jack is trying to keep up with Madison’s energy. Today he bounced and laughed with Madison for so long that he fell asleep while bouncing.
Madison, Jack and Nate had a special photo session tonight with Nana! Stay tuned in the next few days for some sneak peek photos!
Madi spent her last Sunday of Summer relaxing around the house and then Nana and papa took her to the park.
This will be daddy’s last blog post as mommy returns tomorrow. I want to take the time to personally thank my wonderful wife for completing 540+ blog posts to date. This is no small accomplishment. After long days she still manages to find time and energy to recap the day. I know, I look forward to reading the blog everyday, much like everyone else. Katherine – on behalf of all the readers “thank you for all you do!”
Madi was outside playing in the background before she finished her cereal or even got out of her nightgown!
Nana and papa showed up shortly after so daddy could get chores done around the house. What that meant for madi, was time to supervise …
She did help me water the flowers.
After a nice FaceTime convo with Mommy, Madi, jack, Nana and papa went for a late evening trip to the park.
While Daddy was briefing auntie em on “life at the zoo”, em thought she heard a knock at the door. So we walked to the bottom of the stairs and looked up, and who did we see? Madi! She had gotten out of bed, crawled to the door and somehow opened the door and was sitting at the top of the landing, ready to play.
Here are some pics from the day.
A big Thank you to auntie nadia and Nana and papa who came to daddy’s rescue and helped with bedtime when he needed a time out.
At breakfast this morning, Daddy asked madi what she wanted to do today. She replied right away “daddy cut the grass, pick up carter’s poop, then we play in the backyard and then wait on the bench for mommy”. … well we didn’t quite do that today. Madi instead went to MOD for her last summer session! She was so tight this morning daddy struggled to put madi’s shoes. She couldn’t put her heels to the floor.
MOD was fun for her last session. They made paper bracelets and even did chalk outside!
After MOD it was time to play at Nana before heading back home.
