This and that!

Here are some pics from this and that, also a video. I tried to post more videos but was having lots of trouble.  So, I will have to tackle that tomorrow!
 One of my favorite pictures of Amelia and Caroline! It was Amelia's day to be leader at school, so I took so me pictures and Miss Caroline had to be included.
 I have no idea what she is doing, going to do, or thinking....
 Her day to be leader at school!!
 Playing with some bubbles outside!

 Caroline sitting on Daddy's piece of junk, I mean project car.....We will see how big she is when it is done!
  Kim and Stan
came up for a visit and Stan had a surprise for Amelia....however, I think Caroline was more excited than she was at first!  Now they both love their new toy and want to ride it all the time!

Dance Class

Just thought I would post some pictures from Amelia's first dance class.
They are not great pictures because they want parents to stay out of the dance area and the window you look through was already full of parents.......grrrrr.  But I got a couple pictures of ballet moves but unfortunately none of the tap dance ones. Maybe next time! She really enjoyed it and can't wait to go back next week.
By the way, she is the one in pink. Hope you enjoy!

So, today was a huge day in the Machlitt household.  Amelia started Kindergarten and Caroline started day care.  I honestly thought it was going to be a lot easier to drop them both off this morning.  All of these years I never understood why parents were sad and cried and upset.  I mean, big deal, your kid went to school and will be back later.  Celebrate.
However, I am sad.  I almost cried.  And I don't think it is the fact that she is in school.  I am worried about all those things she now will have to deal with and understand.  Those things called other kids and other adults.  The fact that not everyone is nice or the same.  Right now you start worrying about other kids but then you start to worry about yours.  Does she know and fully understand that kids are different and that is okay?  Will she be nice to everyone and stand up for not only herself but for others?
I know she will be fine, especially since Aunt Kendall, I mean, Miss Rankin, is student teaching in her classroom!! I am thankful for that and so thankful that Amelia was super excited this morning and could not wait to get there.
Caroline on the other hand, not to excited to go to DeeDee's today and hang out with other kids.  Not going to lie, as she screamed when I left I thought maybe I should just go get her.  But, I know that she will have fun and that she is fine!!  I also know that she needs some time away from me, and that I need some time away from her too!

We will try to keep up with the blog this new school year! I already have to get some more pictures of Amelia with her book bag! I will maybe post some later!
Here are some of the girls actually playing together with the water hose!

Up in the big nort

As many of you know we made the move back to Clearbrook, MN this month. Although we are very excited to move close to family we are sad to be leaving family and very close friends behind.

The girls( mainly Amelia) are really excited for Christmas and keep asking when Christmas Eve is!
Amelia got to be an Angel in the Christmas program at church and we were all excited to watch Jacob, Savannah, and Daniel in their school Christmas program!

We hope everybody has a great Christmas!!

Love- Ben, Kori, Amelia, & Caroline
