Zoe is a kindergartener

Oh the places you'll go

"Congratulations!  Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!  You're off and away!

You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself,  any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go."

Oh the Places you'll go~ Dr. Seuss

Dear Zoe,

You have been my sunshine since the day you were born.  You are an inquisitive, beautiful, bright & funny little girl.  I am so proud of you and know that you will do great, now off to kindergarten you go.

Today is your day.

Zoe on 8/22/2011

Be kind to your classmates and seek out those who are kind to you. Help others when you can and ask for help when you need it. Don’t give up if there is something you can’t do right away. Keep trying! Respect your teachers and your classmates.  Follow the rules and always use your manners.  Pay attention.  Embrace your new friends and this new adventure.  You will do great! 

I know you worry about Mommy, Daddy and Ava, please don't.  We will miss you terribly but we will be ok.  You won't miss anything at home while you are gone, infact your day will be filled with amazingly, wonderful new things.  When you get home, be sure to tell us all about your day and we will tell you all about ours.  I may cry a little but I'm not sad.  I am so happy for you and extremly proud. 

I hope you love school and know that I love you more than you will ever know.  Embrace today, it is your day!

Love you always,

Tackle it all Week.

What happened to Tackle It Tuesday?  Well, I'm still doing it but this week I am tackling my to do list all week.  Why?  Well, because there are alot of things on my to do list that need to be checked off before Zoe starts school on the 22nd.  (Yes, I know they don't have to be done before then, but I want them to be done, so I don't have to worry as much the week of school starting.)

Here's a glimpse at my to do list:

(Notice the scroll bar, yea, there is alot more on the list.)

Clean the bedrooms & bathrooms

Laundry (not on the list, but needs to be done)
Organize the closets & change the light bulbs

Clean kitchen & fridge

Clean the office & Sweep the floors

Buy Zoe's school shoes & a bday present & a shower gift
Finish sewing my pillows

Saturday & Sunday:
Get Zoe ready for kindergarten  :)

So that is my list of things to do, on top of all of my normal mommy duties and such.  I will let you know how my weeks goes on Saturday.  I hope you all have a great week!!
