Parent Teacher Conferences

PTC took the place of preschool on Thursday. That was one crazy day! We had to be there at 8:20 am. I can hardly believe we are already going to these but I'm so glad her preschool does them. It was nice to meet the teacher and talk about Flower and how she's progressing.
The following is what Flower's teacher had to say about her:
Flower is a bright and personable girl. She is a sweet child who is a pleasure to have in class. She is a cheerful and happy girl. Flower gets along well with the other children and is respectful of me. Her socialization skills are good and she rarely has conflicts. She is quite energetic and eager to please. She follows directions well and completes her class work without interruption. Her skills are on target for her age and she is enthusiastic to participate in classroom discussions. Flower is a spirited child and is a happy addition to our class. She has adjusted well this year in a classroom environment. Flower to be happy at school and is a joy to have in class.
I love the words energetic, spirited and enthusiastic. In other words...a hyperactive handful. :)
Flower sure loves preschool and her best friend Tanner and I'm so glad we made the choice to start her this year instead of waiting until she was four. I think it really helped her to have a place that's all her own after River came.
Earlier in the week I came into the room and found her in River's car seat. I think she's a teensy bit big for that. Cute though. And she was pleased with herself.
After the PTC we went to Old Navy for some smokin' deals. Like $.97 cent shirts and kids pants! Yeah it was that good! After that we went to IHOP for breakfast. We then dropped KG off at home so he could finally sleep. The girls and I headed on over to G and G Hunters to visit Grandma. She is staying there for a bit to recover from her back surgery. We had visited on Tuesday after preschool as well. Both days Flower just clung to uncle Steven. It's very cute. He's huge at 6'4" and burly. I love watching him with her. He's just so darn sweet. She made him eat lunch with her, play games, and watch movies. I also got a kick out of seeing him hold River because all of a sudden she looked like a tiny new born. Then mom held her and she was back to her rolly polly self. On Thursday we were excited that buffalo grandpa joined us. River was passed around and we gabbed the morning away.
That night as soon as I got off work was the babyshower.
By the time I got home from that I was beat! I was so nervous for it all day that it just wore me out. I don't mind big gatherings but I definitely mind all eyes on me. So I was dreading the opening of the gifts. The louder it was while I opened the happier I was because it meant people were talking to each other and not paying attention to me. :)
A fun day it was!
