Our 1st Parent Teachers Conference

On Tuesday Matt and I went to our very first Parent Teachers Conference Westminister Preschool. The only problem was..... those damn little chairs we had to sit on. Just imagine Matt & I sitting on those chairs! Anyhow - Harper is doing great! They said she really enjoys playing with their dress up cloths, the kitchen & house area. They said she is a good friend and once in a while she needs encouragement to share. During group time her attention to the teacher is getting much better - she loves to talk but is learning when it is her time to talk and when it is the teachers time to talk. All in all it was a good conference - which I figured it would be!

Harper's Humor Chapter 2 page 1

Yesterday - on the way from Preschool to DD's - BIG MONKEY came back into our lives. For those of you who do not know who Big Monkey is - he is Harper's imaginary friend who comes and goes. At times he/she is purple with a red hat and other times he/she is huge, then small. Just really depends. We have not heard about Big Monkey for some time, but he/she is BACK.

Harper just started talking about Big Monkey and how 'she' has a boyfriend who was is a 'he' and 'he' had a girlfriend ????? For the life of me I cannot remember the name that she gave Big Monkey - Just remembered it was James Bond??? She then went on to tell me that Big Monkey lives in the East with the Easter Bunny. I'm sure there will more Big Monkey stories and I'll keep you posted.

Harper rides a combine!

Saturday after dance class, Matt took Harper so Les's ( a guy that Matt works with) farm so she could ride the combine. He was in the process of getting the corn out of the fields and had invited us to come and go for a ride. I wasn't feeling well so Matt and Harper headed out for a day of fun. They got to ride on the combine and even helped unload all of corn at the local elevator. She loved it and even brought home a couple of ears of corn that she and Matt used when they built a squirrel feeder.


After Matt got off of work on Halloween, he brought Harper into my office to do a little Trick-or-Treating. She was a hit and had a great time also came home with a sack full of goodies. After I got home from work we went around our neighborhood, then headed to DD's and off to Grandpa's. Finally we headed to Uncle Mitch & Aunt Brandy's house where Matt and Mitch took her around their neighborhood. Harper was then able to play with Brandy and all of Brandy's snow globes. They take each one off of the shelf, play with them, look at them and then put them back. Harper just loves them and Brandy is so good with her. THEN is was time to play some Guitar Hero. I had never played or even knew how it really worked. Mitch showed Matt and they played a couple of songs and Harper even got in on the action as you can see my the pictures below! It was just to funny - Harper really got into it and loved it!
