The girls headed back to school yesterday. WOOOO HOOOOOO!!!
I wish I had some big heart moving words to proclaim but simply put :: I’m so glad to be back on a routine. I think the girls are happy to be back in class too.
Haydn was happy to see a few familiar faces in her class and her teacher is the sweetest. Haydn didn’t handle moving schools very well last year so the transition this year should be MUCH smoother. She’s a shy girl but loves making friends. Having those familiar faces was a huge comfort for her yesterday.
Harper is in a mainstream Kindergarten class this year.
I’m honestly not worried AT ALL . She had no issues being left in her new classroom and jumped right in, fearlessly. In fact, when I came back for the morning parent meeting – she exclaimed – LOUDLY – “what are you doing here!?”
Everyone laughed. To which, she didn’t even notice..
Truthfully, I know Harper is ahead of the curve. She will get to focus that extra energy on integrating social and sensory routines. I’m thankful she started Kindergarten later for this very reason. <3 She’s one of the older children and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wished I had taken the same steps with Haydn.
Both girls will continue speech therapy this year. Their IEP’s (Individualized Education Plan’s) are good to go.. and with any hope – we won’t be in and out of team meetings all year making revisions and doing evaluations. I know in my heart that: It’s all UP from here.
THEIR HARD WORK IS GOING TO PAY OFF. <3
It’s going to be a TERRIFIC year.
My biggest joy of 2015 has been to dedicate more time to photographing everyday moments with my girls. I began with a couple of projects that motivated me to shoot daily but sometimes it’s fun to shoot for no reason at all other than to capture little moments of the kids simply being children. IContinue Reading
Olivia was born on May 4th, 2015. We had so much fun with her session. Her mommy is also a Journalism/Design teacher so she was full of great ideas as well. I had such a great time shooting this baby girl. Really.
Hello Friends! It’s been awhile since I posted an image for the Project 52. I have shot something for each weeks theme but I’ve failed to share them here on the blog. I’m not sure if I’ll post each week individually from here on out but I will, as always, post client sessions. WEEK 11Continue Reading
I went a metaphorical AND literal route this week.. When I read the theme would be NATURE… I thought of stars, trees, plants, and life. I’ve also been tooling around with a cathartic idea (in my head) for a few weeks. The dense fog was the perfect chance to use nature as a backdrop for the moodContinue Reading
