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?

Big Girl

I sure love this little girl.  She goes to a little preschool program just one day a week for a few hours.  She LOVES it and loves that she gets to take a lunch box just like her big sister.  She is soo proud of this Hello Kitty lunch box.  You can see it in the way she is admiring it.  Too cute. Whenever I drop her off I tell her I love her and that I will come right back to get her when she is done playing.  That makes her happy and she runs off to play.  The cute thing is that every time I pick her up, the first thing she says is, "mama back!" and then hugs me. I tell her that mama will ALWAYS come back for her.  I hope as she grows older she will know that no matter how far apart we are from eachother that her mama loves her and that I will always be there for her and that I will always "come back" for her or more realistically (as she gets older) she can always "come back" to me.
