Kendall started at Creative Castle Preschool on August 16th. She attends school on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 to 12:00. There were no tears her first morning but I could tell she was a little nervous. I stayed for about 5 minutes til I knew she was comfortable and we said our goodbyes. I think I got a little misty eyed and she was dry eyed! When I came to pick her up she had huge smiles and lots of excitement! She couldn't wait to show me her "kissing hand" craft and tell me all about school!

We went to Kendall's preschool orientation on August 11th. We saw her classroom, met her teacher (Ms. Stefanie) and aide (Ms. Diane), and toured the preschool. The preschool is Creative Castle and they have a big castle with slides and other gadgets in the middle of the school. She sat down at the table and painted her picture and then played with the classroom toys. It was a fun experience for her. And we were happy to meet her teachers and spend some time with them and her classroom.
We stayed the last weekend of our trip in San Diego. Gary finished work and was able to enjoy some beach time with us. Blake got a new skimboard and spent hours in the ocean. Evan and Kendall liked to build and play in the sand. We stayed at the Hilton Resort in Mission Bay where we normally stay and enjoyed their pool, table tennis and checker boards. We left San Diego on Sunday afternoon and drove home and had a 40 degree temperature change!
