27th Week of Dance and 30th Week of Preschool

Tuesday, April 5th, Kaitlynn had dance class. 4 girls from the Thursday dance class came so that the girls could practice their routines for the recital in a few months. After dance class, on the way home, Kaitlynn was putting on lip gloss and I asked her what she was doing. She said she was putting on lip gloss for her appointment. I asked with who? She said her appointment with Max. She also said he was bringing ice cream for her. I told her she couldn't have ice cream at school and she said "It's pretend!"

We ate lunch and she got ready for school. For snack she chose, an apple and raisins. At preschool, Max said hi to Kaitlynn when she passed him outside. She didn't respond. In the classroom at the cubbies, he showed Kaitlynn a piece of roof he had found. Kailtynn said, "Remember you said you were going to marry me?" He just blushed.

The daily schedule said they read "Aunt Katie's Visit," the author Katie Rodriquez Banister visited the school, played outside and in music sang / listened to "The Cowboy Dance." Kaitlynn was quite intrigued with the author. She talked about how Katie was in a wheelchair and how she got around and got in and out of her car.

While Kaitlynn was in school, I signed her up for the next session of swim lessons and did grocery shopping.

It was another late night for Kaitlynn getting to sleep (after 10PM). Kaitlynn's new favorite book is "Princess Penelope" which she recently got from Scholastics Books. Baby was active, moving around a bit.

Wednesday, the 6th, Kaitlynn took a shower and got ready for preschool. For snack she chose an apple and goldfish. The daily schedule said they read "The Enormous Carrot," played Mystery Garden (gave clues to describe pictures on the game board), created yarn collages at the project table, played outside and in music sang / listened to "The Cowby Dance."

Kaitlynn didn't get to bed til after 10PM because she was crying over her legs hurting. When I was little, I always had terrible knee pains. My pediatrician said they were just growing pains. I hope she doesn't experience those. They were horrible. She wanted to wait for her daddy to get home and was asleep shortly after he came home. Baby moved around a bit. I had a headache in the evening, so I took some Tylenol that helped it go away. I also signed up to track Dave in the Go! St. Louis marathon.

Thursday, the 7th, we are so thankful for the friends and family that donated to Dave's fundraising website. He ran a 1/2 marathon as part of the Go! St. Louis Marathon with Team Living Water through our church. They raised money for Living Water International (

My Women's Bible Study group had talked about meeting this week, but ended up not being able to. Dave took Kaitlynn to school anyway. She chose goldfish and a granola bar for snack. When Kaitlynn got to school, she told her teachers and class that I have a black eye! I was surprised she mentioned it, since it happened on Sunday. Her teacher asked Dave about it before he left.

The daily schedule said they did Yoga (pretzel, cat, boat, river, plank and cobra), played Mystery Garden and Shut the Box, planted grass seed and beans, played on the playground outside and in music sang / listened to "Spaghetti Legs."
Ms. M said that they had tried something new with Kaitlynn the past 2 days. Since Kaitlynn had lost interest in using the sensory brush on herself during circle time, Ms. M had Kaitlynn sit in her lap and she brushed her. She said it worked great and she even asked Ms. M to brush her and asked a question during the story about the book. She is still easy to give up on trying new things, which could be from being tired. Kaitlynn says she is too tired. I think morning preschool will be a better fit for her since she is getting up so much earlier than when preschool first started in August.


After dinner, Kaitlynn took a bath and prepared for bed. She was asleep at about 10PM. I was very tired and crabby most of the day. Baby was moving a bit.

  1. Hi - I am asking for fellow bloggers to visit my site in hopes that we can find a match for a young girl that desperately needs a bone marrow transplant. Would be great if you could visit today too. Thank you. Kelly
