playschool, a 2 year old and a scrapbook page



Well, September is officially here. Payton had her very first day of playschool today and she was soooo excited! I have to admit, I was, too. I remember back in the spring when I was debating on whether or not to put her in playschool this year and I am so glad that we did! This girl is ready. She loves playing with friends and doing crafts and activities...things that I can't always guarantee at home. And I'm excited for somewhat of a schedule around here. Tomorrow she starts her ballet and tap class as well, so 3 days a week I actually have to get up and get out of the house...imagine that! So here are a few pics of my big girl...





with her teacher, Mrs. Hardy...


and the cute little classroom...




It's funny how I am totally remembering my own playschool days now! Man how time flies. And let's not forget about my adorable little 2 year old...




Gabby continues to be impossible to photograph. This chickie has a mind of her own. She is a busy busy girl and is really starting to babble...she has lots of words now. My favorite is how she says Payton's name: "Tay-ton"...it's so cute. She looooves her big sister.


Oh, and a typical mess that she leaves for me lately...




And last but not least, a scrapbook page that I did back in July. (yes, I do still scrapbook sometimes!)
