Milestones

cute Japanese poster will have to stand in for a trip to Paris... for now.

Yesterday evening we officially enrolled Audrey in kindergarten for this fall.

She was so excited and worried about being late for kindergarten round-up that she wanted us to eat dinner standing up to “save time”… Afterward, we celebrated her impending move to big girl school by going out for ice cream, and Bryan taught her the fine art of biting off the end of her sugar cone and slurping the melted ice cream out of the bottom.

She’s becoming such a big girl -- so interested and bright, funny and spunky. A couple of days ago she informed me that she was (in her words) “dying to go to Paris, cuz she just had to see the Eiffel Tower in person as soon as possible.”

Man I love that kid.

So cute! I am about to enroll my 4yo in Kindergarten for next year, and I'm torn up about it.

He's so sweet, bright, interested, engaged, and for the record ... he LOVED Paris. Maybe you should hop on a plane for a little mother/daughter trip to Paris. ;)

So sweet. I used to try to save time by sleeping in my clothes, which mostly just resulted in making me look slightly homeless for the entire year of kindergarten.

Helen said...

That's the sweetest.

Congratulations! I'm a kindergarten teacher and know that it can be a crazy and exciting time for the whole family! It sounds like you guys are all pretty pumped about it. -e

Our 5 year old, Luxe, feels the same way about Paris. It seems as though reading so many children's books about Paris and the movie Ratatouille has sparked her longing to go to the City of Lights. I'm right there with her!

Such a darling tale! I'm pretty sure I love that kid too... and I've never even met her! She's obviously briliant, insightful, and oh-so- chic... Is it genetically inherited? Probably.
