I started school last week!! I love it! I actually didn't even want my mom to take me, I wanted to ride the bus like the big kids. Mommy said that I could when I got a little bigger and started at the big school. My parents were surprised to see all the different things I get to do at school. I have Mrs. Bree as my main teacher. My music teacher is Mrs. Beth and I actually also have a social studies teacher, Mrs. Pier. I go to chapel on Wednesdays too! They also offer computer, PE, piano, dance, and some other extracurricular activities. Mommy said that maybe next year I could take one of those. I start back to dance after labor day. This is going to be such a fun year!

So excited to go meet my teacher and classmates

First day of actual school

In front of my classroom door, we are the whales

2nd day of school

Telling Dakota bye before heading off to school

I wanted to wear my hair different to school each day

3rd day of school hairdo

I have to wear closed toe shoes and socks to school. My mom thought this would be an issue since I am a little picky and have always said the tennis shoes were not cute and didn't match. Fortunately, I have been ok with my "school shoes" and know I can change them when I get out. Mom did buy me some fun shoes that light up. Here is a video of me showing them off.

Amelia comes for a visit!

Finally, Amelia came for a visit!!! We have been waiting 5 months to see her. She was totally worth the wait and absolutely adorable. Me and Mommy went and played with her one afternoon. Babies can be exhausting...I ended up napping while she napped for a while. Then we played some more! So, how cute is she?!?!

Love all her beautiful curly hair!

I actually got to hold her all by myself, but ended up accidentally letting her fall over when I was through. Oops!

Later in the week, the whole group got together for dinner. Couldn't get a picture with all of eyes open or all looking at the camera but cute to have us all together anyway.

Love baby feet and baby shoes!

Lastly, I will leave you with a picture of me in a adorable shirt my Uncle Lou sent me. I guess I am high maintenance, whatever that means?
