Our Singing Star

Zoe loves to sing.  She is always singing something, whether it be a song she learned in nursery or something she made up.  It is so cute and I love to listen to it.  One of her favorite songs to sing is "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."  We decided that we needed to capture the cuteness of her singing it on video.  Unfortunately, she is two and she was not about to perform on demand.  We never quite got a full rendition of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," but what we did get definitely captured our little star's personality.

Just a little note on the video:  when she sings this song in nursery, they hold up a little star attached to a popsicle stick.  She is convinced that this plastic golf flag is a star, just like the ones from nursery.

She did decide to cooperate a little and sing some Disneyland songs for us.  She sang "Yo Ho, Yo Ho" and "Small World", the songs from her two favorite rides.

Third Grade

On Tuesday, Robby started the third grade.  He was so excited to get back to school, and so far he loves it.  He is very excited for third grade because they get to learn multiplication and cursive, two things he has been asking us about for years.  I am so proud of him and his love of school and learning.  He truly is a great kid.  The first day of school was a little bittersweet for me.  I love that he is so excited and ready to go, but I will really miss him being around.

I can't believe how much both of the kids are growing.  Here is a picture I took on the first day of school.

And here is the same picture from last year.

I knew that Zoe had changed dramatically in the last year, but I hadn't realized how much Robby has grown up.  He has really lost his little boy look and is becoming quite the young man.  I love that kid.

I had to post this picture because I love how Zoe has to do everything that Robby does.  She looks up to him so much.  She is having a little bit of a hard time with him being at school all day.  She misses him a lot.

I am such a blessed mom.
