The Amazing River Run

Sophia ran her first Fun Run on Oct 1oth at her school. It was a fundraiser the school does to help promote fitness and to raise money.

At first she didn't want me to run it with her. Not sure why, but I think it's because everyone always says "Hello Mrs. Kaminski" when they see me and I know she doesn't like being the center of attention. At least, that's what I'm choosing to believe. It couldn't possibly be because I embarrass her. :)

Boy was she glad I was with her when it started....we almost got trampled by the people behind us.

She alternated between running and walking (it was a one mile race). She was excited to get a medal for finishing.
Way to go Sophia!

Super Citizen

The end of the 1st 6 weeks brought a special honor to Sophia. She was chosen as Super Citizen for her class (a boy was also chosen).
And yes, she chose to style her hair this way once she got to school. I had fixed it to her liking when we left for school but once I got to the ceremony at looked like this. :)

Girl Scouts Field Trip: Euless Police Station

A couple of weeks ago, Sophia brought home a flier from school about girl scouts and said she wanted to join. So I called up my friend Joanne to see if they had any spaces (I worked with her at Wilshire and knew she was active in it with her girls). Sure enough, they had a spot! Daisies is the name of what the kinder and 1st graders do.
On Monday night, we went on our first girl scout field trip to the Euless Police Station.
Our tour guide, Officer Burnett I believe was very nice.

The girls had TONS of questions.

We got to tour the entire facility including the jail and 911 call center.


This is their kitchen. This is their deep freeze that contains all of the food for the inmates. It's essentially a holding facility. Their max stay might be 3 they just feed them Banquet tv dinners.

Hopefully this will be Sophia's only introduction to a jail!

1st Soccer Game of the Season

Sophia's 1st soccer game of the season was last Saturday and boy was it chilly. It was in the 60's, breezy and misty. Definitely not your normal Texas weather in September. She's playing on the same team but with a new name, the Vipers, and team colors, lime green and black. Oh, and a new coach. This year they increased the field size, increase the number of players on the field (6 instead of 4), and they have a keeper (goalie).

About halfway through the game, an official noticed Sophia had earrings in (her starter set that are supposed to stay in for 6 weeks). Apparently they aren't allowed to play with them in, so we had to remove them. That was easy but putting them back wasn't so easy. It was painful for her and I both.

She also had a game on Tuesday so we had to take out her earrings again, AND put them back in afterwards. I suggested we just take them out and get them re pierced in November when her season is over. By Wednesday night she agreed and we're earring free right now.

Sophia is a First Grader!!!!

Sorry I'm a little behind. Things have been really hectic with going back to school (for both of us). But Sophia started 1st grade!
We had meet the teacher night on Aug. 21st. Sophia has Mrs. Jeffrey.
For the week that I had back to school training, Sophia went to her old PK with Ms. Melanie. And everyday there were tears. Super duper separation anxiety. I guess spending all summer with me was not a good thing. Normally during the summers, she always went to childcare/PK in order to keep her spot. But this summer she was with me.
But she did great at going back to River Trails. Not as many tears. Just a few tummy aches.

She's not wearing her glasses because we need to get the nose piece adjusted.

She had a great first day! She loves her teacher and school once again.

Love this silly girl and love being at her school!
