I'm not one to brag, but this IS my blog...

Lauren is a genius! One of the most intelligent in her class (according to her parent/teacher conference) and she is "sparkly"! She counted the highest when asked to count, can hop on each foot, skip, walk backward, copy shapes (pre-writing and pre-math skills), write her name with a capital letter followed by lower case letters, knows her capital letters (and said them as fast as she could) and all of her lower case letters (except for the funny looking 'g' just like that one that she told the teacher did NOT look like a g...) and she has a lot of friends and interacts with them all very well. Her one thing to work on is to wait to talk. "...she is just bursting with information to share and she has a lot to say, but thinking 'is it my turn to talk or my turn to listen?' is something they will be working on for the next 3 mo." I am SO proud of her!!!

I know. It's been a month...sorry

We have had a LONG vacation. It was great, but LONG in case I didn't mention it. We went to the beach, to Mark's wedding (it was beautiful, btw!), and to Walt Disney World. The kids loved it. We did too. 4 is a magical age to go to Disney. 1, not so magical. Bored. He also wanted down A LOT and he is SO strong. We did get to take him on 2 trains, the Carousel of Progress, The Transit Authority and a few others. He did like the fireworks each time, but slept through Fantasmic. Lauren was thrilled to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Pluto, Leo, JoJo, Goliath, June, Cinderella, Prince Charming, the wicked step mother and sisters and WOODY from Toy Story.
