The last few pounds are not coming off as quickly as the first many. I'll keep plugging away. The most unbelievable statistic - 39 inches!
This week has been all about Feisty - her spring music and art show at school, and her 6th birthday.
Thursday night was the music and art show - it was only kindergarteners, which was really fun. After the kids all filed in to the risers, the principal made a couple of announcements, telling the kids to locate their families and wave to them, then give their full attention to the director. Feisty was so excited to the point of giddiness that she didn't quite catch that part of the announcement! (She's the last one in on the left front row).
Care Bear's art show was the previous Thursday when we wandered around and tried to find her projects on the walls and in the library. It was fun, but this was much more intimate with everything displayed in her room.
Wednesday was Feisty's 6th birthday - and it snowed. I called her to ask how she liked having snow on her birthday in the middle of May. She said she liked it because now they'd have indoor recess! She took cupcakes to school for her class, she took cupcakes to church that night for her friends there, she went to Chuckie Cheese with her immediate family, and this afternoon we had cake and ice cream at our house for all the aunts and uncles and grandparents, etc. A "pool party" in her back yard with school friends is still in the works, if it ever warms up enough - one celebrated little girl!!
Big sister read the cards to us --
Both girls have had great teachers this year - and they only have one more week of school. I will miss both of these teachers so much. Feisty has really blossomed this year with the first year teacher who adored her - and the feeling was mutual.
I had to shoot some more pictures of the amazing tulips - they seem to have enjoyed the wet weather this year much more than I have! Enjoy!
