catching up

sea's mood matched the foggy overcast weather yesterday morning on our way to school...
she and her brother were sharing "flags" (weeds they picked on the way)...she has had this look of concern, borderline-sadness on her face all week...on wednesday they checked out their own books at the library...sea chose something by dr. seuss...
here she is at the end of the line waiting to be picked up, reflective...
right after school we went to our friend char's house for a drumming class...
sea was really tired but did seem to enjoy it...


afterwards the girls all ran around together, spinning one another on the swing...
then after our potluck dinner we were off to our first "back to school night" at the school...here is sea's folder...
this morning i went to a co-op organic food pick up...lots of moms and preschool and younger children drinking coffee, comparing notes, buying bulk health goods and food, eating snacks and potluck style...here story made a new friend alexander born the day before him...they have similar spirited personalities and it was nice talking with his mom and comparing notes...
now sea is making ms. baker a card...she is sounding out the words and trying to spell on her own...i'm not ready for this! i feel like she is closer to story's age, putting dollies to bed...but growth happens whether i acknowledge it or not...i'll have to take a photo of said card with all her sounded out words and drawing of ms. baker and her mom...

i've made a few friends with parents of other kindergarteners...one even has a mommy blog with similar themes...interesting to read parallel lives...i'll see if she is alright with me posting the link...

now story is going "ah-ah-ah" like he is a baby and sea is his mom. she carries him around and he cries and then nuzzles in to her...next sea grabbed my phone and started taking videos...story is still trying to get her attention and she is walking around narrating her world..."my mom is typing on the computer..."...lost my train of thought...i'm going to get off so i can engage with them instead of capture it all...
