Welcome to the Roe household blog. We're attempting to post 365 days of pictures in a Roe. Cork and I have been married since 2002 and welcomed identical daughters in August of 2009 after a struggle with infertility. Our girls were definitely worth the wait and I say they were destined to be here because they were conceived on my birthday, due on my sister's birthday and born on my grandma's birthday. What are the chances of that! We welcomed our third daughter in June of 2012. We all fell in love with her right away. She has two amazing older sisters who love to watch over her.

Ketchup Graduation Mustaches

They've come a long way since the beginning of the year. Eiley has a mark on her forehead today from Arya pushing her into the butcher block yesterday. Fun times. I put a little butterfly bandage on it last night to try to hold it together in hopes that it would heal faster.

Today was the twins' graduation from preschool. They had the cutest little program where they sang a couple songs they had learned through the course of the year and a poem for the dads since Father's Day is coming up. Cork helped the twins get ready this morning and put their shoes on for them. Usually they do their own shoes and most days they are on the wrong feet. Each kid walked across a little bridge during the graduation and one of the teachers, Miss Maria, commented that Eiley's shoes were on the right feet. She then commented again when it was Arya's turn. I told her later that they'd had help this morning.

It amazes me how fast the last two years of school went. I was pregnant with Zia for most of the first year and juggling the twinado and an infant for the second year. Both years were so much fun and we couldn't have asked for a better teacher than Miss Maria. Their second teacher got off to a bit of a rocky start, but turned out to be a great fit for the girls. Instead of each parent giving a gift at the end of the year, we wanted to do something very special, so one of the parents came up with the idea of hand print quilts. We found out this week that this is Miss Maria's only year teaching. Another teacher stepped aside for a year but always planned on coming back. Maria home schools her three kids and a three day per week class wasn't something she could commit to for more than one year. She will still teach small enrichment classes at the gym, so maybe Zia will get a chance to have a class with one of the best teachers out there. Maria commented this week that going into it she wasn't sure why she had said she would do it, but felt like there was a reason. After meeting the kids and parents in Arya and Eiley's class, she knew the reason why. I know my kids were part of the class, but it really was an amazing group. We are going to miss them next year.

After graduation, we brought the kids out for lunch. I think that's something I would like to continue with them on the last day of school. It's such a small thing, but a great way to build memories.
