At Peyton's school, they have a similar program.
We chose a boy who is 2 and a girl who is 4 to match Erin and Peyton's ages.
We bought the boy a noisy tow truck, a pair of pants, 3 tops, underwear and socks.
We bought the girl a Furreal Purse Pup, a pair of jeans, a pair of pants, a t shirt and a fleece reversible jacket along with some socks.
We are very fortunate so we thought we could help someone who may not be so fortunate this Christmas.

For 50's day, she had to dress up like they do in the 50's.
For Thanksgiving, they read an acrostic poem. Both videos are on her classroom blog.
This isn't just a turkey as anyone can see
I made it with my hand which is a part of me!
It comes with lots of love especially to say,
I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving Day.

Friday night we shopped at Kohls and Walmart. Saturday morning we went to Kmart and Cracker Barrel. Saturday afternoon, we went to the Millcreek Mall. We went out for dinner on Saturday night at the Quaker Steak and Lube. Sunday morning, we went to Target and Babies R Us. Brad met us there and we headed home to Ohio, only after buying a new washer and dryer at Best Buy.
We got some amazing deals on clothes and fun stuff for the kids. Christmas Countdown is on.

- Ketchup Chips
- Tim Hortons (none in Ohio yet)
- Diana Sauce for sweet and sour meatballs
- Kraft Dinner (they have Kraft Macaroni and Cheese - it is not the same)
- Skor Bits (for baking)
We do have many other benefits like 1 gallon of milk for $1.99 and turkeys for as low as $0.40 a pound. Can you imagine that in Canada?

Her report also indicated she is outstanding at the following:
- respects the rights of others
- respects authority
She is doing well in Math and Language and is working hard on her reading and writing. She is really enjoying Art and Music as well.
We are very proud of her transition to Ohio and a new school. She still misses her friends in Tavistock and talks of them frequently.
She has been selected for school picture retakes so let's hope for a great smile!
"Peyton is a bright, happy and unbelieveably sweet child. It is a true pleasure to have him in our class."
The teacher is very kind.
"He is inquisitive, capable and eager to learn...Peyton is doing a great job sharing and getting along with the other children in the class."
So glad to hear he behaves at school.
He knows all of the letters of the alphabet and 7 of 11 of the colours. He knows most of his shapes and the most important of the body parts. He has mastered puzzles - this is his favourite/favorite thing to do right now.
