Elle the Orator

Elle was assigned to give an oral report on maple syrup farms in her preschool class.  I know...oral report when you are four years old??  However, she did LOVE  doing it and even loved the poster that we (I) made.  Her number one request was that it have glitter on it and let me just say, she was sure to point that out to her class several times.  Jon surprised her and took off from work to meet us at her school to watch her deliver her report.  She did a great job and was too adorable for words.  Right as she finished, she ran to me and whispered in my ear, "mama, I was really nervous up there".  I reassured her of how well she did and she sat on my lap for the rest of the presentations.  This is the first of many school projects I am sure and we were so proud of her.  
note:  elle added the leopard print cardigan on top of her floral dress as we were walking out the door so that she could look "extra fancy" for the big event.  Is that cute or what?
