My [private] Kindergartener and almost 3 year old

I cannot believe it have not posted to this site for so long. As you can tell from the picture, the kids are certainly growing. Thomas started private Kindergarten today and Samantha started the 3-year old class. We are now at a new school/day care and I have a really good feeling this was a good move for us.

Dig the boots? I tried to convince Thomas that he did not need the boots (upper 90's today, with not a chance of rain) and that he would not be able to run in them when he went outside to play. He convinced me (after running around the house without tripping) that he needed them. I didn't even try to convince Samantha to leave Barney home.

Thank you, President Bush

Many do not agree with your views. Many demonize you. Many just straight up hate you. However, we all must be grateful to you. You have kept us safe. You have displayed great grace and dignity during many difficult times. Thank you for being the kind of leader I can teach my children to look up to. Thank you for showing graciousness, compassion and strength in a world that displays anger, hate and weakness.
