First Day of Kindy!

Ansley started her first day of school today!
I cannot believe she is in kindergarten!!
She was so excited this morning, she asked me,
"Mom, you aren't just tricking me, I really do get to go to school today, right?"
Ansley is getting so grown-up! It kills me :(
Some days I just want her to stop.
But most days I just enjoy watching the little lady she is becoming.

My little camera ready girl. Always has a pose!

With the backpack. A sweet gift from Grandma and Grandpa Larson!
She's one styling girl!

Is it time yet??

We stopped to pick up Grandma on the way.
She didn't want to miss the big "drop-off"
Grandma cried, I did not.
I was sad though.
Just a little :)
And just a little excited too!
(That doesn't make me a bad Mom, right?)
Ansley LOVED her first day!
She jumped in the car after pick-up, and said,
"School is AWESOME! I don't just like it, I love it! I am going to go everyday!"
Hope she feels that way about school for many years to come!!

Loose Tooth

Ansley has her first loose tooth.
And she is SO excited!
When she discovered her loose tooth, she excitedly exclaimed,
"This is better than my birthday,
let's call everyone we know!"
We proceeded to make about 5 phone calls.
She wanted to make sure Grandma would
wiggle the tooth, so she would KNOW it was loose.
She told Aunt Haley,
"I cannot wait to see what the tooth fairy brings me.
It'll either be money, or a knick-knack!?"
A knick-knack!?
This morning she woke up and told me the tooth more wiggly today.
So now we are waiting for our very first visit from
the tooth fairy.
And I am on the hunt for the perfect knick-knack :)

Ansley's To-Do List:

I am sure most of you read this on FB, but I wanted to write it down
somewhere that I will be able to look back and remember it.
So, here it is again...
Yesterday morning while I was getting ready Ansley came into the bathroom
with a to-do list for the day.
It was drawn in a tiny notebook. And numbered:
1. Go to the park.

2. Make cupcakes

3. Collect sticks to make fairy furniture

4. Go hunting for mermaids.

I really wish that it had been the kind of day where I could have

dropped everything else on my to-do list and completed hers.

I want to be that Mom. (I am not that Mom.)

It just wasn't in the cards though.

We did make it to the park. And we did eat cupcakes at the park.

Brought by a friend :)

A mermaid hunt is in the works.

Anyone want to join in that fun?
