Back to School!

Today was back to school day for Anna and I! Of course Barney and paci (she hasn't given it up yet) had to go to school with Anna too. Jonathan takes her to school and I pick her up so we started that today even though I really wanted to go with them this morning. This year was a much easier start for both of us than last year; no tears from either of us. Her teachers said she had a great day and she seemed to be happy when I picked her up. My classes got off to a good start too. So far, so good!

Cutie Pie

Anna starts back to her two morning a week preschool on the 18th (I start teaching again that day too). We got a letter from her school asking us to a bring a close up picture of our child to orientation so after church today I took her outside to try to get one. Picture taking is always an adventure with Anna but I managed to get a couple that I thought were cute! I can't believe how fast she is growing up but a what a precious blessing she is to her daddy and I--God is soooooooooooooo good!!!

Bathtime with Barney!

As you've probably read in one of my other posts, Anna LOVES Barney! The only thing Barney that we have owned up until today are a few DVDs but today at Toys R Us I found her a Barney doll that can go in the tub or pool. She loves him and has not put him down all day! I was afraid she was going to have a melt down after her bath when I told her Barney had to stay in the bathroom until the morning to dry out--she of course wanted him to sleep in her crib. Fortunately Barney also came with a little Baby Bop figurine that could be dried off easily so she settled for her for the night. Here she is in the tub with her new Barney doll...

Weekend Fun!

Anna got to spend some time with her Mamaw and Papaw this weekend. They met us at church on Sunday and we all had a relaxing day together afterwards. On Monday the girls went to the park while the boys worked on some projects to help update our guest bathrooms. I think we got the better end of that deal! The picture below is of Anna and Mamaw playing with the bubbles. The bottle was almost empty but Anna was determined to get some more bubbles out of it!!
