I got moved to another elementary school closer to my home, nice... And I'll be sharing a high school with my friend Andrew. We don't usually have as much to do at the high schools as speech therapist, but we still have some students that we work with. I ran into one of my students from last year at Cafe Rio. He told his mom that I was "cool", can you believe it. I mean, those of you who really know me... can you believe? Me neither.
Anyway, now I have to get back to work and pray that Lindy doesn't divorce me for leaving her home with the three kids.
Sydney asked to get wet in the water fountain thinger, so Aunt Elyse took her. Then Sydney freaked out, she didn't know what she was getting her self into.
Bama and Sydney. Bama is Sydney's absolute favorite, when she's around, Mom and Dad go to the way side.
The little girls loved the lazy river, when we left they were both very upset.

We had the kids make fruit loop necklaces. Apparently we don't do enough crafts with our children. Sydney didn't understand what we were doing here.
Savannah was very proud of her necklace. She had a good old time at the party (more than Sydney did).
Logan came to, but he didn't participate much in the games.
Instead of pin the tail on the donkey, we had them put stickers on the castle. I had Bob draw a castle for the girls to put them on, Sydney was very impressed.
We had a princess cake walk where we had different princesses that they could walk on while listening to Disney princess music. When the music stopped we asked who was standing on a certain princess, then they got to wear or hold something related to that princess.
Sydney's boy cousins felt bad that they weren't included (only girls were invited at first), so we told them that they could come, but they would have to put up with princess stuff. They were mostly good sports about it; however, Matthew treaded lightly because he didn't want to wear any princess apparel (silly boy, we had a sword waiting for him).
Oaklie dressed up like Jasmin.
Little mermaid for Kelsey (even though she was too tall for the picture).
Savannah is enjoying her poison apple after landing on Snow White. (We didn't actually poison that apple).
Sydney got to wear the Cinderella Slippers (we made sure that this happened because she would have thrown a fit if anyone else put on her slippers).
Here the girls got to hear clues to guess the different princess dolls hiding in bags. Here are the girls guessing (which they were pretty good at), they all got a prize for each princess.
Here is the princess lineup with the prizes they got below.
It took awhile for Sydney to decide which princess she wanted us to make a cake of, partly because I don't think she really understood what we were asking for. She finally decided on Cinderella. She's a little short, we actually had to temporarily yank off her legs to get her to fit. We like to think that she's kneeling down or something.
It's my party and I'll cry if I want to.
Here is Sydney in her princess pjs and with all of here princess dolls.
The girls got these really cool pillow princess books (you can see Logan's Cars pillow book in the background. What a good idea.
