Well summer is just about over. It's officially September - but yet it's 90 degrees outside today. Feels really odd in Wisconsin! I know it won't last long, so we're enjoying our last few weeks of nice weather before it gets chilly.
Emily is growing like a weed! Both mentally and physically. She is now in her new class for the fall - Miss Suzie is her teacher. She seems to be enjoying it thus far. She will miss being in Miss Maggie & Miss Mindi's class though. She can now almost write her name. She can spell her name outloud. She can identify almost all the letters in the alphabet if they are written down. She can say her alphabet from start to finish. She can count up to about 16 or so without messing up...although every once in a while she throws in an eleventeen and I can't help but crack up!! She is a big helper. She loves to help with everything that you are doing.
|Here is Em helping Daddy wash my new car. We bought a 2012 Ford Fusion a few weeks ago and traded my Trailblazer. I am getting used to being in a little car - but it's lots of fun and I really like it.|
|Em got bored washing the car and decided she needed to wash her feet instead :)|
|Daddy's truck. Just thought it was a really neat picture with that giant tree in the background.|
|I told you she likes to help!!! She loved washing the big truck with daddy. Oh...and doesn't everyone wear their leotard while washing cars in the driveway??|
For the 2nd year in a row, we attended the Sun Prairie Sweet Corn Festival parade. Emily LOVES parades. She has now found out the trick to getting candy. Just ask her to show you sometime...she has the moves down :) I swear people flock to her and give her handfuls of candy!!! LOL!
|Auntie CeCe joined us this year and we had a great time!|
|This was Em waiting for the parade to start. It was a HOT day!!|
|Mikaiya, Braenna and Emily - "Children of the Corn"|
|The girls on the big swings. You could hear Braenna's happy screams from where we were standing. It was a riot to watch them!!! Oh and to watch Em keep her shoes from flying off. Didn't even think about the flip flops.|
|The girls played the Lucky Ducky game and each won a tiara|
|Kory went down this BIG slide with Emily. I don't think he realized how fast you actually go. I've been down them a few times with her before. So Daddy was laughing pretty hard!!!!|
|Here is Emily and I on the ferris while. It was her first time on one of those. She did great!|
|My friend Sarah joined us with her little boy Max. It was Max's first carnival ride!!!!|
|Peek!!! This was our usual park up north. Em was happily running around and playing with the other kiddos there.|
|Here she is all ready for bed!!!|
|We also had to switch closets so we organized as we moved things. She is VERY proud of her new shoe rack :)|
|Here is her new bed and new bedding set that she picked out all by herself :)|
|Here's the bed and dresser view|
|The other side of the room|
I can't believe August is gone already. Now on to a fun September!!!!
