April 2014

I spend most of my time posting images to Instagram – and also to flickr (mostly to just have a backup somewhere – flickr isn’t what it use to be). But – I really do need to post more here – and write more.

Mae is busy with first grade. When Mae started school, we honestly thought it wouldn’t go well with the social side. Mae was concerned she didn’t know anyone (we switched her to the school where her big sister goes – so Mae left behind all her friends.

Well – Mae is doing great – socially. She knows so many people in her school – and most of the parents. She’s known to give the best hugs (it’s like a weird cult thing, this hugging) — and it takes forever to get her to the car after school – lots of last minute chats and hugs and … well — she’s well-liked.

She needs to pay a little closer attention in class — she’s distracted easily — but I think she’ll come around. I’ve told her if she doesn’t – she’ll be repeating first grade with the incoming first graders who were previously kindergarteners — that whole notion has inspired her to get her act together…

While I have a photo from every day of Mae’s life – I just don’t have the time to keep things organized and posted here… So – I’ll be a little more loose with my own rules — and post when I can — and make note of the more interesting things that happen in her busy life…

Oh — she went the dentist last week. Mae is a little perturbed she has yet to lose any teeth – like most of her friends. The dentist assured her new teeth are on the way – her bottom baby teeth are loosening up… So – be on the lookout for photos of a toothless Mae — should be interesting…
