everything i needed to know...by Robert Fulgham
most of what i really need to know about how to live, what to do, and how to be, i learned in Kindergarten.
Kindergarten State of Mind
put things back where you found them.
clean up your own mess.
don't take things that aren't yours.
say your sorry when you hurt somebody.
wash your hands before you eat.
warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
live a balanced life. learn some, and think some, and draw some, and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
take a nap every afternoon.
when you go out into the world, watch for traffic; hold hands and stick together.
be aware of wonder. remember the little seed in the plastic cup. the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why; but we are all just like that seed.
goldfish and hamsters and white mice, and even the little seed in the plastic cup--they all die.
and so do we.
and then, remember, the "Sam Books", and the first word you learned--the biggest word of all--LOOK!!
everything you need to know is in there somewhere...
apply any of those items to your family life or your work or your government or your world and the hold true and clear and firm.
and it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out in the world; it is best to hold hands and stick together.

this is at 'back to school night'. kenadee is now a 'panda' at providence elementary. this is 'oreo' their mascot. oreo stands for: outstanding reader at every oppurtunity!!
waiting for the bus with her best friend jillian. notice mike in the background, what a great daddy he is!!! standing in line waiting for the bus was a lot of fun. seeing all the kids so excited for school. we have about 20 kids or more at our bus stop and about 7-10 are kindergarteners!!! all the moms were holding back tears...but as soon as the bus drove off with our precious children inside to begin their big adventure of school, the tears fell...

we were worried with the new barbie jeep she wouldn't want to ride her bike, well...all she wants to do is 'ride her bike without training wheels'. she is doing much better and learned quickly how to turn right, and to go down the sidewalk...straight!!! she has crashed a couple of times and has scrapes and bruises but she says that is part of riding a bike!!!
her favorite thing to say is...'i can't believe i got my ears pierced (still), and i can ride my bike without training wheels.' and this week it is the above with 'i can't believe i start kindergarten in 2 days, and it is my birthday in 4 days and i will be 5!!'
mom and dad can't believe it either!!! our little girl turning 5 years old, riding the bus, going to school, growing up...

oh how our life has changed in 12 years...kenadee has brought a whole new meaning to the word 'love'. our family became complete with the addition of her!!!

I LOVE YOU!!!

our neighbor up the street has caught many snakes, this one is a 'gopher snake'. he says they are harmless...but to me a snake is a snake is a snake...eeks!!!!
she had the slimey thing wrapped around her arm like a piece of jewelry!!!!
he also has this dragon lizard, (i think that is what it is called) its name is marshall and he is shedding...kenadee liked to peel the skin off like a sunburn...again, eeks!!!
the snake was also starting to shed. they have not named it yet, kenadee suggested lizzy.
kenadee said it felt wierd, and his tongue tickled her arm. and now she wants to go and hold the snake again. i am not too sure about this...my daughter has NO fear!!! (other than learning to ride her bike without training wheels...any suggestions??!!)
