Rilianne’s Last Day of Pre-K

Friday, May 22nd, 2020

Today was Rilianne’s official last day of Pre-K. For the last 2 months, Pre-K has taken place over Zoom. This evening, they did a slideshow and presented awards online. She received the “Deer Award” for being a gracious friend. We enjoyed reminiscing over the year with a slide show while also silently grieving for the moments that were lost. I guess we officially have a kindergartener now!

Her teachers: Mrs. Merrell and Mrs. Willis.

And her spring school photo turned out really well!

Happy 5th Birthday Rilianne

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

Today is Rilianne’s 5th birthday. Things didn’t exactly go as planned.

All year long, she has asked for us to bring cupcakes to her class. That couldn’t happen. I thought about having a drive by birthday, but the storms eliminated that option. But Rilianne enjoys everything she does so her day was still special.  Her class even sang to her on zoom!

Some of her gifts include a dollhouse, which she calls her “Barbie Dreamhouse”, and a bicycle. We also got her some seeds to plant because she loves helping outside.

Social Distancing

Sunday, March 29th, 2020

Our lives have certainly slowed down due to COVID-19 closures. There are no soccer games, no refereeing, no swimming, no school, no travel, no anything.  Tristan is still working at Chick-Fil-A and Kimberlie and I still work (although about half of mine is telework).  Mackenzie and Rilianne are bored out of their minds. Fortunately, the weather has been beautiful!

Quarantine Zoom Pre-K

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Thanks to COVID-19, this is how Rilianne will have Pre-K for the foreseeable future — using Zoom.

Pre-K Transportation Day

Wednesday, March 11th, 2020

I got to go back to Rilianne’s school this morning for Transportation Day!  Rilianne got to interact with all different types of vehicles.  She had a blast!

Valentine’s PAC Time

Friday, February 14th, 2020

Kimberlie and I left work early today to join Rilianne in PAC time. PAC means “Parent and Child” and is a pre-K requirement.  Rilianne iced valentine cookies and we were basically there to clean up the mess!

Car Pool Selfie

Just a quick car pool selfie this morning!

LJPS Morning Car Pool Line

Wednesday, December 18th, 2019

Rilianne still loves school and she is still thriving at Lake Joy Primary. Each morning in the car pool line, she has to hang out the window and see who is around us. This morning, we were idling right next to her best friend Connor. Before pre-K, Rilianne went to daycare with Connor. They have been together their entire lives!

They had a full conversation about where their Elves (on the shelf) were this morning.
