His special day

Tuesday was Noah's special day. Not his birthday but at preschool it was his special day because they are learning the letter "N". When they learn a new letter, if your name starts with that letter then it is your special day. He even got a big sticker that he proceeded to stick on his wall in his room. We celebrated by having Noah's favorite foods for dinner. He actually loves to go to Waffle House so instead we fixed waffles at home with turkey bacon and scrambled eggs. He is so cute.

New house

So far for our house that we are going to be building at our land we have purchased some "new" appliances. Really they are not new at all, just new to us. I found an old stove and oven from about 1948 which works and I am really going to use and this week Gary and I found a GE frig from the 1930s. And it works great. Now we are not going to use it for our main refrigerator, I'll keep the one I have now but this will be great for our screen in porch to use for drinks and just an extra frig. So cool. I love that Gary is into this vintage thing for our house too.
Don't have a picture of the stove. :-(

Mrs. Baker

When my oldest, Jennifer, was little she was very attached to home. She didn't like to stay anywhere that wasn't with me or Gary or grandparents so we decided Jenny needed to go to preschool so she could get used to going to school and being away from us for short periods of time. When she started kindergarten it would be all day and I just wasn't sure how she would handle that. Preschool was only a couple mornings a week and she actually handled it very well. We found a preschool at the First Baptist church here in Greenwood; it was very highly recommended. Mrs. Karen Baker was the teacher and Jenny loved her. This is a picture of Jenny in Mrs. Baker's class. The next picture is one with Mrs. Baker and Jenny. When it was time for Josh to start school we decided preschool would be a good thing for him to so we enrolled him in Mrs. Baker's classes. When Jamie and Jessica came along there was no question they too would go to preschool there. And so the tradition continues......Noah is going there and absolutely loving it and learning so much. Thanks Mrs. Baker for the influence you have had on my children and grandchildren. You're the best.
