There were lots of fun things to see in her new classroom but most importantly there was a play kitchen and food. Brooklyn headed straight over to the kitchen where there were three other kids playing. They played there the whole time while the parents got all the kindergarten information.
After a while Brooklyn and a couple of her new classmates had made their pretend food and were sitting down at the table to eat, BUT wait, you can't forget the prayer! Brooklyn then told all the kids sitting at the table to fold their arms and she was going to say a blessing on the food. As my Mom and I watched as Brooklyn said a prayer on the food we just laughed and smiled as all the kids (not one was LDS) bowed their head and folded their arms as Brooklyn said a long prayer on the pretend dinner they had made. I don't think any of the other parents saw what had happened they were all talking to the teacher, but as I watched Brooklyn I smiled a great big proud smile.
The great thing was that she was not afraid to be herself and second, none of the other children even thought twice to not pray, or thought it was weird.

Brooklyn spent the whole time collecting sea shells. Which are washed and in the backyard on display. As for Landon it took him a while to get used to the water. He was a little afraid of the waves and didn't like the fact that the water kept coming after him.
We would walk with him up to the water and as soon as a wave came in he would run away and yell "the water is coming, the water is coming!"After a while Landon was brave enough to go in the water, and then we couldn't get him out of it. Dad was definitely a big kid. He chased the kids with seaweed and had fun burying Brooklyn in the sand.
