The sweetest things in life, aren't things......

Kennedy has been excited about this day for awhile now. She gets mad watching "sissy" and "brother" being dropped off to school everyday.

Finally her day came!
She was awake earlier then everybody. She had picked out her outfit the night before (with much coaxing from me, that arm sleeves probably wouldn't match.) She didn't complain and let me do her hair (with more coaxing that we couldn't add pink in it for the first day. So sparkles it was!) She applied lip gloss (her favorite and most wretched way to accessorize. The girl had a mound that Beau and I had to, once again, coax to wipe some off.)

She wasn't scared at all!

(Her teacher...we LOVE her. Seriously, the women is amazing. She also has a few more openings if any of you want to put your 3-4year old in. Let me know and I will get you her info. She is soooo worth it!)

As you can see in the picture she still has her backpack on. I showed her where the hooks were and she said (so kindly)"I want to wear it so the other kids don't steal it. They will all want it because it is cute."

When I picked her up she walked out and said " I was SUPER good mom, and all the other kids were naughty!" (pretty good indicator she was naughty.)

She said "Do you know what this means?" (as she put her head down on her hands)
I said "No, what does it mean?"
Ken "It means I was naughty."
Me "Oh"
Ken" But I told teacher that I would be super good from now on."

None of this shocked me of course. The teacher did say when she walked out "She is a little firecracker!"

Ken has since picked out her outfit for next week.
She definitely will need a little more convincing that go-go boots, a hot green skirt and red arm sleeves maybe won't be the best option!

Man, It's a good thing she is so cute!
I love my little stinker!

I still have to send McKinley back to her room to change 3 of the 5 school days in a week! She sure sounds like a firecracker. What fun!

Oh that girl is a funny one. And so "fashionable," too. ;) I'm sure she keeps you all smiling. I know she keeps me laughing, and I don't even live with her.

She is so funny:) She is a favorite for sure!!! How fun!! As I am pulling up to the building where Max goes to school he starts to collapse and cry. I hope one day he will want to go and the teacher does not have to drag him screaming and kicking:)

Maybe I don't remember because I would have been right in there with you and I've blocked all of that out!! JK Hope you are doing well, love ya!
