Seriously, do I even have to state how proud this picture makes me????? Vera has read 6 of the 7 Harry Potter Books and LOVES them. It is like I have accomplished all of my goals as a parent. ;) On Sunday, she and I sat down to watch the first movie. Yes, we geeked it up Pottermania style (scarves, wands, and Bertie Botts...aka jelly beans). Since then, she has been riding a broom stick, casting spells, and wearing the Gryffindor Scarf. So happy!

With 4 kids, I am really struggling with how to give each child the time and emotional support that they need. I feel torn when two of them clamor for my attention at the same time...or three...or all of them. At times, it feels like I have to choose one over the other. I know that Vera at the start of the year was hurt that I am volunteering in Keller's class, but don't volunteer during the day in her classroom. Of course there are reasons for the way it is, but still, doesn't make me feel less guilty.
What I do get to be in her classroom is a Co-Room Mom! It is a fairly easy assignment, plan the Halloween and Valentine's Day Party + make sure teacher is showered with love during Teacher Appreciation Week. So far, so fun.

Each kiddo in K's class was responsible for creating a float for the Kindergarten Friendship Parade. The float was not allowed to have wheels, but was supposed to have a friend or two along for the ride. Keller chose his crocodile and dog. He also thought up the awesome idea of a pirate ship. Keller did all of the painting and cutting and then I helped with the structure of the ship. Yes, I like these projects as much as the kids.
Walking by big sister's room during the parade.
