Its Spring already! Kayla comes home now with her hair all over the place, lol. With the weather warming up the kids can now go out and play at recess. We have been to Kayla's school last week to see her receive her Wilbur Winner Award. While there, we got a chance to talk to Kayla's teacher and ask about her progress. We also talk to him about our plans to enroll our youngest in Pre-K this year. Ralph is still looking into to it. Kayla's school right now is one of the newest schools built with brand new school playground equipment and up to date computer technology. We are lucky enough that we belong in the same district and this was clearly the right school for her. Kayla has improved so much. She started Kindergarten not reading at all but now, she is reading everything. It continues to amaze us how smart she is and how many milestones she has reached. Clearly we made the right choice and we are hopeful that when Kaitlyn does start school she will follow in her big sister's footstep.
Last Christmas we got my MIL something that she really wanted. Ralph and I debated at first what to get for her until I finally caved in and asked her myself. She really didn't want anything but if our budget would allow it, she would like a new printer. We have a printer that is also a fax machine and a scanner but it is in the playroom. She wanted to get a new one for herself so she didn't have to come out if she wanted to print something. Ralph and I looked at a few from Kodak printers, epson printers, HP printers, Dell and so on. Ralph wanted to get her something that is easy to install and easy to use. I left the it to Ralph to choose which one. We finally settled on a brand that was within our budget. Now, she can scan, photo copy and print anything she wants in the privacy of her own room. If only I can remember to print out pictures so I can start hanging them up, lol. I already have a whole bunch of photo stashed in my thumbnail. One day I swear I am going to take the time to just print out pictures of my kids to hang up.
