Fingers crossed and updates

We have some news to share. We have a put an offer in on a house!! We are just now awaiting official confirmation that the offer was accepted, though everyone is very optimistic. :) I promise that I will put up pictures if/when we get the final word. The place would be perfect for us, so please keep your fingers crossed. The house is only a couple blocks from the elementary school, middle school and high school. I hope to be sharing the good news with you all shortly.

Kindergarten round up is in just over a week. I have to admit that as it approaches, I am getting a little nervous. If we end up at the elementary school that I am hoping for (if we get the house) there are 3 teachers for K alone. According to a dear teacher friend of mine with experience at that school, 2 of the teachers would be a great fit for Emma. I can't wait to see how she flourishes. She is showing a bit more interest in numbers, though not by much. I have decided not to freak out if she doesn't know everything in the readiness guides I have read. My guess is she will master all of the concepts shortly after entering school.

Arabel has started talking A TON!!! She sings along with songs, counts, is learning her ABCs, and has a fantastic imagination. She is currently obsessed with all things Toy Story. I actually really look forward to taking the girls to see Toy Story 3 in June. Belle is showing her temper now, which is actually really funny to watch. I can see that she is going to be following in her dramatic sister's footsteps. I wouldn't trade it for the world either.

Nothing much new for Rob and I. I am taking on more of a manager role at work. I am a little bummed that it is changing my schedule though.
