Jack's Second Year of Preschool: 3s Class with Mrs. Lisa & Mrs. Melinda

Jack had another great year at preschool. We have been so blessed to live where we live. People are friendly, there is a great sense of community, and we have been really pleased with the teachers at Jack's school. I didn't grow up living in the same town for my whole life, but I hope Jack and Isaac have the opportunity to have lasting friendships with the kids they are starting with now.

Jack's 3s Class

 First Day of School - he looks so little!

 Who am I?

Pajama Day! Jack was a little disappointed that we didn't have another Pajama Day the last week of school. There's always next year, little buddy!

Our Sensational Jack

 A fireman for Halloween

Celebrating turning 4 with the other little boys in class (their birthdays were all within a week of each other). Jack was the first in his class to turn 4 and he thought that he was supposed to go ahead and move up to the 4s class. Even though he is thrilled to FINALLY move up, he will miss his classmates and teachers.
 Red Day

 Excited to hold a rabbit at the Petting Zoo Day.

 Jack enjoyed meeting the firemen and learning about their job.

 Everyday I would ask Jack what his favorite thing about his day was 
and every day he would tell me "playing on the playground."

Learning about Johnny Appleseed

Valentine's Day

With his classmates

Jack's class performing the story of Daniel and the Lion's Den for chapel.

Easter Party at school, complete with an Easter Egg Hunt.

Every year the school has a spring program called "Happy" and 
each class sings and dances for the parents. It is super cute.

Every year the 3s classes perform a circus for the school.

Jack's class was the lion act.
The End of Year Party was a Water Bash. The kids 
had a great time, even if they did end up freezing!

It's so hard to believe that this guy is done with another year of preschool. We are so proud of him and can't wait to see what the coming years have in store!


  1. Liked watching these photos from Jack's Second Year of Preschool. He is looking cute and looks like he enjoys his classes a lot. My son goes to one of best Phoenix preschool academy and really love spending time there.

Baby Update: 32 Weeks, What's It Like to Have Polyhydramnios

I have had some questions about how I am feeling so I thought I would share what it has been like for me to experience Polyhydramnios with this pregnancy. If you have missed my previous posts, I have too much amniotic fluid in my uterus which makes my belly really big and it also causes early contractions (and possibly labor) because my body thinks it is further along than it is. For me it meant a hospital stay at almost-30 weeks to stop contractions.

Yesterday I had my follow up with the high-risk OB. Their ultrasound measurements showed the fluid is currently 21cm (which is below the risk). The measurements are a bit of an art project with different people getting different numbers (last week I was still measuring 25cm). The doctor I saw said they will continue to measure and assess me on a weekly basis for now. According to him, once I make it to 34 weeks, they would not try to prevent birth if I went into labor. He also mentioned wanting to induce me at 38 weeks. We shall see... my…

Weekend Project: Sign Art

UPDATE 01/07/16
This project is by far my most viewed post thanks to Pinterest and also this blog post from Make Magazine in 2014. If you are interested in purchasing a PDF of the words from me, you may do so for $20. Contact me at cheree dot moore at gmail dot com to make the purchase. If you make your own sign, I would love to hear about and see your results!

For some time, I have been intrigued by the idea of transferring printed art to wood. Specifically the transfer of words (or typography). Sign art is all over the internet – be it blogs I follow or Pinterest – and I have had an itch to try my hand at it. 

Daniel and I had some scrap wood from pallets from our move to Alabama that was in good shape and I thought that this wood gave me the perfect opportunity to create a (cheap) sign for our living room.

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to go on the sign and then it took even longer to research how I would do the transfer. Actually doing the project took even longer sin…

It's the Final Countdown

Three long years ago, we learned that Daniel was going to be relocated from working in Hollywood, Alabama to two hours north in Spring City, Tennessee. We knew it was coming, but it still turned our world upside down. We spent eight months living out of suitcases, in and out of hotels and vacation homes during the week, until finally settling into our current home on Signal Mountain.
We both felt strongly that we made the right choice in regard to the location of our new home, but we knew it would be a difficult journey – Daniel's new position promised long hours, with a 70-minute commute each way. We were told the job would last about a year, so we hoped and prayed for the best.
To say it's been a hard experience would be an understatement. Jack went through a phase where he didn't believe that Daniel lived at our house. Which was kind of true. For months on end, Daniel worked 6-7 days a week, and sometimes weeks at a time without a day off. The hours were lo…
