Kindergarten, Day 1

The time has finally arrived: I started Kindergarten today. Not much to report just yet, other than I am wearing a new dress and new sneakers. And that Mommy let me make a silly face in my picture with Daddy.

More details will follow, once I've actually gone through the whole day.

Slip Slidin' Away

Simon and Garfunkel really were prophetic when they said, "The nearer your destination, the more you slip slidin' away." With kindergarten fast approaching, the summer's almost over. I finally had the chance to experience a Slip and Slide. Or maybe it should be called a Slip and Crawl :)

Teacher In-Service Day

OECC was closed yesterday for a teacher in-service day. Daddy took the day off from work so we could all do something together.

We started the day at the Science Center in Cleveland, right next to where Uncle Howard works. My new friend Ruby and her mom Joy came with us. We worked together to build this really neat arch. Then daddy knocked it down.

Mommy and I played with colored pipes and paddles. Mommy's so smart that she even played a song on them.
But the best part of the Science Center is the kids area. I was actually here 3 years ago, but I don't remember it. Here I am sitting in the plastic balls pit.
And loading plastic balls into a bucket to carry them into a container about 7 feet off of the ground.
Later, Daddy and I went to a baseball game with some of my good friends from school. Here's Sasha, Kyra, Shannon, and me acting silly.
We were all surprised when Miss Megan, my Rainbow Room teacher, was there too.
Daddy got me an M&M Cookie Sandwich -- yummy!
One of the two best things about the baseball game was the donut.
The other great thing was the fireworks after the game.
