This is the first year that we will be buying teacher gifts and I am so excited with how ours turned out! I wasn’t trying to spend a fortune but I wanted to give functional and realistic gifts that not everyone would be giving. I decided on a basket filled with goodies. Kellan has his teacher and a teachers assistant. So we doubled up on our gifts. After purchasing our mugs for our teachers it was brought to my attention that mugs are a no-no gift because all parents every year want to give a mug gift. If you decide you want to there is nothing wrong with that but try and add a little something else.
Today marks a momentous time in our lives because Kellan is at his first day of Preschool! I just can’t believe it! Time is just going way too fast for me and my mama heart CAN NOT take it anymore. A very small part of me thought I was going to cry today dropping him off, I’m proud to announce I did not shed one tear. In fact, I came home and was totally fine. I don’t want to admit it but I’ve gotten A LOT done around the house because Knox is sleeping and Kaizer has just been entertaining himself.
This is how Kellan’s first day of Preschool started.
We left early to pick up some school shirts someone had given us.
We stopped at grandmas work to say hi.
We then stopped at Safeway to pick up something plates and napkins we were
supposed to bring to the class.
I wanted to take him to lunch since it was his first day and he insisted we eat chicken legs
from the deli and we ate at the park next to his school.
After eating lunch we headed over to his school and waited out front for Ethan.
We took a few pictures and walked him to class.
He got to take a picture with his teach and hang his backpack up and started playing.
Ethan and I left and we were good to go.
While we were eating lunch I asked him a few questions and these were his answers.

We went to Phoenix last week to spend the 4th down there and we had so much! We got tickets to go to the LEGOLAND Discovery Center and the Sea Life Aquarium. The kids loved both places! Because Kellan calls himself the “Master Builder” he can’t stop talking about going back to the LEGOLAND Discovery Center.
We went on our first ever family vacation with just the five of us! It’s always a little stressful planning a vacation with little ones and deciding what we want to do and what fits with the kids schedules but let me tell you, we had a blast! Yes we had a few meltdowns along the way (mostly from me!) and our vacation wasn’t perfect to a T but was something I know I won’t forget and hopefully the kids can look back on this and know that we had a good time with them.
It’s finally February and I’ve got a lot of fun stuff planned! If you don’t keep up with my Instagram account you can click here! I talked about how we booked our tickets and rooms to go to LEGOLAAAAND for Kellan and Knox’s birthday. They don’t know yet but I’m so excited to surprise them! I’ve got Kaizers 5 month update and I am just so in love with this little boy.
