First Day of School

I believe that I can safely say many of the pictures speak for themselves. I will add, however, that Madeline had a great first day of Pre-K. She was excited about going both the night before and in the morning. There were two "criers" in the classroom when David and I were dropping Madeline off but, luckily, the criers didn't seem to cause any anxiety for Madeline. At pick-up time, Madeline was happy to see me but the teacher said that Madeline had a good day.

Madeline was ravenous today.....school must've worked up an appetite (She ate almost all of her lunch I packed her)! After school, Madeline plopped down at the counter and watched me cook while she ate a snack. I talked about everything I was doing as I cooked. Madeline got quite the kick out of the fact that I told her onions are stinky. Oh brother, I didn't mean to fuel the "stinky talk" fire. But I have to admit that it was cute when she referred to the onion as a "stinky apple".

Madeline was in and out of the house during the afternoon but when I was done cooking and had dinner in the oven we laid on the hammock together while Madeline played with her Ariel doll. This picture was captured by David when he came home from work.

After dinner, we went out for a super special treat to celebrate the first day of school. I ordered a "baby cone" for both me and Madeline and they were still so huge! (Although my Snickerdoodle ice cream was awesome!) David and I joked that if this was the baby size we need to see if they have a in utero size next time. All in all, it was a very nice day.

Sure am glad that our kiddie size at bubbles are no where that large. That's like a double dip there.
Glad school went well for Madeline.

I'm glad to hear that Madeline had a great first day of school. She looked very cute in her dress.

Thanks, Patti! The dress is actually a hand-me-down from another Astrakhan Mom :-)

I can tell from the picture you went to Jaime's ice cream stand. That is one of Hailey's favorite spots. Glad to hear Madeline enjoyed her day. Can't wait to see you guys on Friday.
