Finally!! =) We've been waiting pretty much forever. =) Seriously - what were they thinking having the orientation back in April?? She's been SO excited ever since. She did fabulous today! She didn't even look back to wave or say good-bye to me when I dropped her off. She was too busy telling her teacher about her My Little Pony backpack. =) Yesterday we had a little open house so she was able to get acquainted with her teachers and see her classroom. When I picked her up she said "I had such a fun time today mommy!" This is going to be so great for her!! There are some really cute little girls in her class which I'm really excited about. She doesn't have many little girlfriends. I dearly love all of her little boy buddies though. =) We stopped at a little bakery around the corner and picked out some cookies and donuts for the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL SPECIAL TREAT. =) I had BIG plans! I was going to start a cake tradition but I think I'll start next year because I really dropped the ball. Yesterday was such a crazy day!!
Anyway - here are some (okay A LOT!) of pictures of Anika before and after school. I realize that they are all pretty much the same but INDULGE me because she is SO cute and it's her first day of school and it's my first time EVER having a kid have a first day of school!
She is ALSO at a fun age! Really - is there any age that isn't fun?? Of course - I could live without the whining but her cuteness makes up for it in every way!! She is full of nice words and I love yous, Not wanting to take naps at all (Ope -right on cue - she just walked in and she's SO supposed to be asleep!!), when she dances she's been trying to be really ballerinaish with the twirls and the leg kicks, she gets really carsick, and she's a very good big sister.
We found out over the weekend that she is a little bit prejudice (which I think all kids are) but I was HUMILIATED. Let's just say that she made a few racially WRONG comments and I about DIED. We've had some lessons and talked about it a lot since so hopefully we nipped that one in the bud. =)
Well - I'm sure I'll have more stuff soon! See ya!
