1st Days

Gabby had her first day of ballet last Friday! She has been so excited. She went shopping with Mimi (Grandma Mary Jane) for her leotard last week and has worn it almost every waking moment since. She would wear it to bed as well if we would let her. I think in her first half hour lesson they learned to point their toes and possibly to plie. Can you imagine a class of 3 and 4 year olds? Herding cats is all I have to say. Her teacher is a very brave woman!

Today was Gabby's first day of pre school. Gabby attended pre three school last year (love those fall birthdays!). This year she was off and running, literally, to the dress up pile to steal the best princess dress. Ah yes, experience counts. After 'helping' her remember to share she seemed to adjust quite quickly (as in 60 seconds) to the new class. While I lost the battle of the cute "first day of school outfit" I did win the "no costumes, pjs, or dirty and/or stained clothes" battle. We will call it a draw.
