Makes My Monday: "all by myself

It's actually beginning to look like Fall around here. The leaves are changing...which makes walks with the kids that much more exciting. We can look for all different colors. And while going on our walk this last time, we were able to learn that tree starts with "T" (the letter Dakota was learning in school this last week)

I am thoroughly pleased at how fast Dakota is catching on with his letters and numbers. Dakota can now count to 29...and he can is pointing out more letters and saying their sounds, too. My sister, a Pre-K teacher in Florida, gave me some of the older curriculum books which Dakota LOVES doing the work pages. I actually teared out a few to let him work on in church. They keep him still and occupied while he listens. You would be surprised at how little ones can multi task and still pick up on what the pastor is saying.

Here is Dakota...he was climbing on the rails of the bridge during our walk on Friday...Perfect walking companions mixed with beautiful weather= fabulous fall photos.

Lilyann....she loves to do things "all by myself". That is her favorite quote these days...but she IS doing alot of things all by herself. She is doing better with potty training...still not pull up free, but I can see it in the near, near future. And whenever she does do something by herself, she runs to you for a "high five" afterwards.

Beautiful pictures of your precious two. I also love the gaining of independence, it's the stubbornness that goes with it that bugs me.
