Anna is so thrilled that she gets to go to "school"! It's really just a once a week joyschool that I am doing with a couple other moms, but she loves it. She started last week and had her second class this week.

When I picked her up from Miss Cindy's house after the first day (don't you love calling people Miss First-name? I get to be Miss Liz when it's my week to teach), Anna told me all the fun things they did, and then said, "Let's go to school now!" Apparantly through all the excited talk of going to school, she'd gotten it into her head that she was going to go to school at the elementary school near our home. Poor girl was a little disappointed at first, and it melted my heart. I guess I should have figured when this has been her favorite book lately. That lucky little girl is old enough for kindergarten. Ever read it? I remember loving it when I was little too.

I don't know what I'm going to do when she's old enough to go to the real school. I want to keep her little as long as possible!

Here she is with her backpack on her first day of school.

So proud

She's so cute. She looks so much like you! I should try and start something like that with Jordyn.

I can't get over how much she looks like you Liz! She is beautiful!

So is Anna going to start calling you Miss Liz? :-) I love that you do Joy school with her. I thought about putting Abby into our neighborhood co-op preschool but she still seemed so little. I guess it helped that we were going to be moving so I didn't have to worry about making a decision about whether to put her in or not. Cute Anna girl on the first day. What fun.

What a sweetheart she is! My kids were like that too. It gets even harder when you have older kids going to school and the younger ones want to go as well.
