These are the lines Avery quoted from Nemo this morning!!! She was so excited for school! It was just yesterday that she learned she was going in the morning instead of the afternoon. So the fact that we got out the door on time- and took pictures- is pretty impressive! We're not a morning kind of family, so it was new for us to be somewhere by 8:30. Well, here are the pics of Avery all ready to go!
I made her uncock her head. And she said, "ok, but in the next one, can I do my head sideways because its cuter." Turns out I do like this one better!
This was her "first day of school" leap...
With her teacher, Miss Heather.
And with her other teacher, Miss Dierdre.
All ready for some learnin'!
Well, she loved it. She said her favorite part was walking around the whole school and taking a tour. She asked if I was going to get her a surprise for after school. Huh. Do you think I've conditioned her for some high expectations? Well, I couldn't disappoint... and since its Oliver's birthday this week he's going to be getting lots of presents and attention... I figured I'd spoil her a bit. And really, let's be honest... I've been waiting for the excuse to indulge for a while now.... so here's the deal... I'm a sucker for my daughter and I'm a sucker for some serious movie cheeziness.... so she may have received the High School Musical series!!!
I'll wrap things up with some Oliver silliness...

    Loving the Oliver prat falls! He is toooo cute! Miss him and his mommy. Hope starts preschool tomorrow and made me read the list of kid names and parent names in her class. When I came to a mom named Stephanie she got soo excited. I had to calm her down and tell her it's a different Stephanie and Avery is not in her class.:(
