    Hi Becky! I'm so sorry about the rough week last week and I hope this week is turning into a better one! :hug: My youngest, Katie, is starting K4 (she misses the regular kindergarten cut-off by 2 weeks) in 2 more weeks and I'm finding it really hard to believe! I hope Ally is having fun - I'm sure she is!!

    Many, many thoughts and prayers coming at ya! :goodvibes

    Hello everyone!! I am so very sorry that I haven't checked in recently! Thank you for all of the PMs!! I haven't been on the DIS in almost a month--YIKES!! Things have just been INSANELY busy around here!! Ally started Kindergarten and we are just now getting settled into our new routine (school, dance, church, etc.). I'm also the room mom for Ally's class which keeps me very busy! I'm up at the school 2 times a week volunteering. And we're now getting up everyday at 6:30 a.m. when we normally sleep in. So when bedtime rolls around for the girls, I'm usually struggling to keep my eyes open. So that's why I haven't been on much--I just haven't had the time/energy. I have missed everyone sooo very much and have looked forward to having a break this weekend so I can catch up! I just hope I haven't totally lost everyone who has been reading my TR! I will be starting where I left off on my trip--I promise!!

    Ally is absolutely LOVING Kindergarten!! She has gotten E's in conduct everyday and her teacher just adores her--Ally is her teacher's helper (she takes the attendance folder to the office each morning and gets milk from the cafeteria for snack). Her favorite specialty class is P.E. She has adjusted beautifully to going to school 5 days a week. Here is a link to some of my Facebook albums (you don't have to have an FB account to view them):

    The Night Before Kindergarten: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=31212&id=1035906284&l=dfbafbb56a

    Ally's 1st Day of School: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=31258&id=1035906284&l=01f74aa3d2

    Claire's 1st Day of MDO: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=32026&id=1035906284&l=c0d3d12387

    Claire's 1st Dance Class: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=32178&id=1035906284&l=8026d9b4fa

    Ally's 2 Weeks of Colors: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=32874&id=1035906284&l=135889d1d5

    Ally's Disney Autograph Book (created by her): http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=33114&id=1035906284&l=a45ea69dd9

    Ally's Marvelous Me Page: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=33450&id=1035906284&l=280b030026

    Sorry for all of the album links but I thought this was the best way to update quickly.

    And thank you for all of your concern for my uncle. He is home from the hospital and is going to therapy 3 times a week. My dad went up to visit him last weekend and thinks he's doing a lot better.

    We're here in Alabama this weekend visiting my in-laws so I'm hoping to have lots of time to catch up!! We're all about to watch the BAMA game in a bit!! I'll probably be on here during the game because I get so nervous during games! Roll tide!!

    Again, thanks for all of the well wishes and thoughts for Ally on her first day of K! I really cherish the friendships I have made here on the DIS!! I love ya'll! :lovestruc

    Thank you Julie!! Ally has 19 students in her class. They had 21 to begin with but ended up hiring a new teacher to reduce the class sizes. There are 8 Kindergarten classes at her school. There were 11 last year but they built and opened a new school this fall due to the growth in our town! Yes, Ally does look different with her hair in a ponytail. I try to pull it back the days she has P.E.

    Thank you Missy!! I've missed you, too!! Yes, Ally just loves school and she ADORES her teacher!! I couldn't be happier!!

    OK! I have asked one other person and I just can't seem to do it. I just noticed in your siggie that you have done it also.

    So, how do you put your TR link as your TR/PTR title; I give up!
    TIA

    I'll try and explain

    Now type in your TR title and then close it off with [/url and then another bracket to close it off.
