Posted by Christine on August 22, 2011 in Kids, relationships

Dear Sean, Today you started Kindergarten. Your first day of school. I can’t believe it. The time has flown so quickly. The last five years, I happily disregarded all the commercials and signs that indicated it was time for school feeling that this time was so far off in our future. And now the day [...]

The Pre-Cation

Posted by Christine on July 19, 2011 in Kids, Learning

As a type A, I find it very helpful to go on a “pre-cation” prior to a vacation. The objective of the pre-cation is to figure out what the travel/hotel needs are for the kids at that particular time and to have some fun. As the kids get older, their sleeping and eating needs change [...]

And the 41s have it!

Posted by Christine on June 28, 2011 in Kids, obsession

We have finally settled down from “Mavericks fever” here in the Kless house. Sean, who loves every sport, was entranced with the NBA playoffs and finals. Of course having our hometown team the Dallas Mavericks in it made it so much fun to watch! For Sean, it doesn’t matter who is playing, he loves to [...]

You know how kids, and I guess some adults too, can get stuck on something. Like a song. And they listen to it over and over and over and over and over again? Well, that would be my kids with a CD we got with a book of “Take Me Out To The Ball Game.” [...]

  Last Wednesday, May 25, was Sean’s last day of preschool. He has had a great year. I cannot believe how much he has learned. He knows all of his letters and all of their sounds. He is starting to read simple books and can sound out a lot of words. He also loves numbers. [...]

Year-End Teacher Gift

Posted by Christine on May 25, 2011 in craft, Kids, relationships

We have adored Sean’s teacher this year. She was the perfect fit for him. Her son plays baseball and is a catcher for his school team. Apparently they have actual conversations about sports together – Sean and his teacher. I volunteered to be room mom and really enjoyed it. For the end of year, I [...]
