Well, things are moving right along over here at Casa Burns! We have spent this week getting my sweet Kayleigh ready for travel! Sunday morning she will leave for Mississippi with her grandparents then on July 3rd she is going to New York City with her friend Marley and her family. How exciting! Since she's flying to NYC we had to get her a photo ID, unfortunately her school ID doesn't have a picture. We had to go to the driver's license testing center and that was quite an adventure. After that we had to go to a tag agency to get the actual ID. Kayleigh has been wanting the underneath part of her hair colored so we did that and she also wanted to get some fingernails. On top of all that Kayleigh was finishing up her softball season! Whew!
Maddie started piano lessons today. She's been playing around on the piano a lot lately so I thought we'd see if it might be her thing. She's talking about writing songs and having a band with her cousin EmiLee. Maddie has the perfect name for their band, "The Naked Cousins Band" hmmm...my kid is watching too much TV!
Fletcher has had a great week. Just the usual for him school and our walks each day. There is a young man working at TCC for the summer. His name is Seth and he is Fletcher's new favorite teacher! Seth is energetic and fun. He makes a point to come see Fletcher in his unit each day whether he's working with him or not. I think they like each other a lot! Fletcher loves that duck puppet in the picture below. I'm adding a video I took yesterday of them singing a duck song where they use this puppet. Fletcher has started moving his fingers together to make the 'quack, quack' part of a song they sing. If you watch closely toward the end you can see him quack, quack his fingers. It is now my most favorite thing he does!
Fletcher & Mr. Seth
