Zoe starts kindergarten

Zoe and I rode the bus to school the day before to see her classroom and meet her teacher Mrs. Bennett. Zoe was happy to see that her friends Emily and Luke were also in the class.She also met Amanda the woman in charge of the before school daycare that Zoe will be going to on most days. Zoe has to get up at 5:30 with her brothers and then ride the bus with them as i am at work.The boys seem to be doing a great job finishing getting her ready. I do her hair the night before and have her clothes set out to make the morning as easy as possible. Zoe picked out her 1st day clothes and was super excited.I was able to be home that first morning to snap pictures as well as when they arrived back home in the afternoon. Zoe loved daycare,school and lunch.She really enjoys Mr Whalley the music teacher who actually was my music teacher and he does not even look a day older .The boys also seem to like school on the first day. Desmond is a JUNIOR (WOW)this year and Tevin a sophmore.Amazing how fast the years go by...

Zoe's Summer Vacation

Zoe and I had a great weekend at FCC's China Culture Camp at Keuka College the first weekend in August. We stayed in a dorm finally I thought i will sleep well in my own bed but nope we immediately pushed the beds together so I had the thrasher with me once again. Zoe seemed to have fun and was all excited about the get to know dance, showing me in the room all of her moves but then just sat there like a grump. Turns out Zoe likes to dance but does not like to be told how to dance. This seems to be a recurring theme with her lately. She made friends with a few of the kids and I talked to several moms hopefully next year we will be more social. Zoe learned about chinese communications.We really enjoyed our weekend away and look forward to next year.
