School Days, School Days

Lo started school and dance on the same day this year.  She was too excited for words.
Here she is, posing for the obligatory front-porch-on-the-first-day-of-school picture.  She's adorable, I know.  Pay no attention to the filthy storm door.  I clean it once a week (sometimes more), I promise.

Getting started with her new teacher, Miss Hilary.  We are so excited to have Miss Hilary this year, she's awesome.

And, after dinner, all ready for her very first dance class.
Once again, she was so excited.

Here she is, warming up at the first of class.  To be honest with you, I'm not thrilled about the outfits they ordered for her class.  But at least she's mostly covered.  We might only be going to this studio for this year.
Anyhoo, she was so hilarious during class.  She kept turning around and whispering "Is it time to put on my tap shoes?" and was thrilled when that time finally came.  She loves it, and I think she'll do really well.

Ever since Mya's birthday, Lo has been asking me very single day if it's October 3rd yet.  Her birthday.  Sometimes it was more than once a day.  It got very old very fast.
So finally, I resorted to an old faithful.  The paper chain.  I hung it above her bed, and told her that when the papers are all gone, it's October 3rd and she will be 4 years old.
Works like charm.
