Last Day of PreK

Tuesday was the last day of school for Chase, it has been a year where I have watched him grow and learn more then I could have imagined. We watch our shy, introverted and often times timid little boy gain confidence, self-esteem and independence. We were blessed with wonderful teachers who took the time to know and understand Chase, they helped him, encouraged him and loved him and as a parent I couldn't have asked for anything more.

When you ask Chase his favorite thing about school, he'll say:
Doing the calendar
Drawing/writing (everyday we would come home with at least 3-5 pages)
The attendance (he always knew how many boys and girls were in class and who was missing)

As we start our summer adventures, I'm excited to have him home and look forward to spending time with him.

For Halloween Riley and I were the only ones to dress up this year. Chase wanted to be spiderman and wore his costume once it just wasn't on Halloween.
Our lil' witch
Given I still have a say in what Riley can be I figured we may as well be twin witches

We went to Boo at the Zoo (the Bronx Z00), it was fun to see the zoo all decorated for Halloween and the kids had a great time.

The Next Stop is Chase Street

Chase's 4th Birthday - October 13, 2010
Anyone who knows Chase, knows how much he LOVES the subway so it was a natural choice for his 4th birthday. We made subway cupcakes, subway favor bags, even subway stops and thanks to his good friends Eliot and Kajsia he even got a subway shirt. It was a lot of fun to have a few friends over and all of his girl cousins, that were in town for a girls weekend, to help celebrate.
(We lost our camera shortly after Chase's bday and by the time we got a new one the Halloween decoration were already up but at least it give you a sense of what we did)
