Elk and the Fair!

"Way to Go Uncle Brian!!"

"Daddy, Where is Yours?"
Uncle D-Rail's Montana Elk

Giving Love to Papa Jeff

She hated the BIG horses, but loved riding
the little ones

Some random lady taking Sage's
picture, I just noticed...
The kind of Bunny she is getting next week
It will only get this big, just her size!

She would SCREAM when I would put her on
But would love it once she'd get going!

Riding the train with E-Mom (Grandma)

My parents and I took Sage to the Puyallup fair last weekend. The day before it was a downpour of rain so I dressed her like an eskimo, only it turned out to be hot. When we asked her what T-shirt she wanted to buy so she wouldn't be hot, she said "Bob" Bob Marley, which explains her ONLY thing she wanted to see over and over were the bunnies (bunnys??) anyways when she was in the petting area she got to see her 2 favorite things...Goaps as she calls them and pet a bunny. SO since Auntie A has Goaps, we are going to buy her a bunny like the one she is petting next Friday. We have been getting it's home ready, we have this little tiny house that matches our shed that has a half door that will be it's new home....oh boy. I got this really cool Ion watch that is suppose to help with stress, dextarity etc that I highly recommend.

Unfortunately we lost Papa Jeff's Dad (PapaPapa) but Sage got to see him right after we went to the fair since the hospital was across the street, and painted him a pretty picture.
Finally, Uncle Brian got a big elk and brought it over to show and wanted Sage to take her picture with it. She has been going deer hunting daily with Daddy and Uncle Jared here around town. She drives around in the car with them and when Daddy gets out with his bow, Uncle Jared holds her. She loves Uncle Jared and wanted to paint a picture for him and whenever they go to his house she goes right for their dog "Jackson"

For now we are just hanging out. Sage is still going to preschool 2 days a week for 5 hours each day and cries when we get to the parking lot. I have been driving different routes so she doesn't know where we are going. There are 3 other kids in there who have never gone to daycare/preschool before so when they cry, she cries. After my surgery and I am back at 100% I might pull her and try something else. I am going in for my full hystarectomy next Thursday so hopefully that will help with the pain...well unless I have to clean out the bunny told Jeramy that it was his job, especially since we get to pick it up the day AFTER my surgery...good planning on my part if I do say so myself.

First Day of Pre-School

Sage has now gone to her new school "Mini Skool" 3 times. The first time she went it was just a trial run, but then the second time was the real deal. Typically she will be there Tuesday and Thursday from 10-3 (which costs us $117 a week). The first day of school when we drove into the parking lot she knew where she was and started crying for "Tob and Lam" her dogs, meaning she wanted to go home. She did pretty good that day, but didn't eat or nap. Today when I dropped her off, she was kicking and screaming and didn't want to go in, but my Dad and I showed up to pick her up and she was sitting around the table with her new friends eating her snack and I couldn't get her to leave. Her hair is all crazy because she just got up from trying to take her nap. She made a bunch of new friends Reece and Kaylin and Cole. Reece and her stayed up during naptime talking. She has done many new arts and crafts and is learning so many new things. They even made a welcome sign for Sage. Jeramy is hunting this week so he will be excited to pick her up and see her school too. This school will also be great for when I have my surgery at the end of the month! At first it was so hard for me to leave her there, but now she is sad at first but after today I know it is the right thing because she didn't want to leave, she is busy all day, and interacting with kids her own age. I did keep her in the 1-2 class (the monkey room which also seemed fitting) instead of the 2.5-4 class just so she get's use to being at school. Everyday she comes home with a daily report card that I put in a binder along with my "Mom Note" on how I thought it went that day, and we save all of her crafts in there to keep. She is growing up so quick. We tried her in a dance class were Seta goes, but I don't think she was into it yet, but maybe now that she is use to being without me and around other kids, we will give it another try. She is counting to 20 and can do her whole ABC's and sings a bunch of songs, and talks in sentances, a new one is amazing how quickly she is growing up before our eyes!
