Kenley started gymnastics at the beginning of the summer and has really enjoyed it. She’s taking a little break now with the craziness of October, but we’re planning to start it back up again soon. She also just finished her soccer season. This was the first season with goalies, so it was a little more challenging. She had a great time despite missing a couple games due to the hurricane and our trips.
The transition to kindergarten has gone really well. We meet with her teacher next week for our first parent/teacher conference. It’s hard to believe she’ll get her first report card this week! She really likes school, her teacher, and recess. She’s been making new friends but also mentions that she misses her friends from her old school (who all go to different elementary schools now). I sometimes forget that we are “elementary school” parents. It doesn’t quite seem possible! I am excited to get involved with the school this year.
Happy birthday sweet girl!
