But first... The Lion's cheerleaders are baaaaaaaack!!!!!! (Please forgive Noa's short, short, short outfit - we are getting as much use out of last year's outfit as we can!)
Here's a little picture of a very over-tired mommy and her Ya-ya.
Beauty queen Noa and her chalk drawings below. The first is a rainbow she copied and the second is her first self portrait. Not bad!
Lydie's new face
And finally, here's Noa on her first day of Preschool! We were rushing around so much this morning, I'm glad we squeezed this shot in! She was wearing her new school tennis shoes and her new jeans. She did so well! Before we left, I told her we would probably have to leave blanky and kitty (her security things) in the car because we can't take them to school. She said, "Mom, I'll just leave them at home because that's what big kids do." Whoa! Big girl! She was a little clingy when I dropped her off. She was very nervous and shy with her teacher Miss Adelle, and the other kids, but they said she had a terrific first day. She went potty all by herself (and even told them she had to go), learned all of the rules of the classroom, and when I picked her up, she was busy on the playground and hardly noticed I was there! Afterward, we stopped at a coffee shop and she got to pick out a huge cookie because she was so brave. She kept saying, "Mom, I am soooooo brave. I went to school all by myself! And Ruthie didn't go!" I enjoyed my 3 hours of freedom, but I would be lying if I made you believe I wasn't thinking about my Noa-girl the whole time. :)
