This is the face that greeted me afterschool yesterday. She decided to leave the paint on her face to “show Mommy.”
Em got to bring Lauren to school today for her Share Day. It was so very cute. She was so excited to share her best friend with all of her classmates. But I think she got a little nervous because Mommy was watching from the back of the room, too.
E: “Hi, Boys and Girls” (YES! She really did say that!)
Class: “Hiiii, Emma!”
E: “My share today is my friend. She is from Chicago. Hmmm…her favorite color is pink. And I like her because she has been my friend for a long time.”
( little pause )
“I can take questions now.”
Classmate: “Um…What is her name?“
E: “Oh, Lauren!”
Classmate: “How old is she?”
E: “5 and a half!”
And…that was it! It was great. Em gave Lauren a hug and we were on our way. So funny.
Stacy asked for some summer reminders today.
This isn’t completely “summer-y,” since when we visited the beach yesterday it was only low 60s, and the water was frigid! (Yeah, Addie found out first hand, as she fell headfirst into a wave!) – But it is sunny, there are blue skies, and proof that summer is a-comin’!
For Christmas, J. had given Em tickets to see the Junie B. Jones show.
And since Kim and Lauren were going to be here, they got to come to the show, as well. The show was really cute, perfectly timed for little Junie B.’s like ours…
So we made it a special day for the girls and took them to lunch…
And then we all got a little pampering…
And some pretty toes out of the deal…
A pretty good deal, and a very fun afternoon.
Better late than never. And since she is on the West coast here with us this week…it is STILL Kim’s birthday – for two more hours!
Happy Birthday Kim! May you have beachy, carrot-cake filled dreams!
(And yeah, Will blew out Kim’s candles for her. And no, she is not 22, but I only had 2 measly candles in the cupboard! She is 29 again…)
Love you, my friend!
Have been a little absent this weekend because our friends from Chicago swung into town…
And even cold, cough and fever have not slowed these girls down…
We are off and running for the week, but we’ll try to check in from time to time. In the meantime, stop over to Tracey’s for some more BSMs to start the week off.
