First Day of School!

Here is our pretty girl all ready for her first day of 4 year old preschool! She was SOOOOO excited, and woke up ready and raring to go! This year she is attending school 3 half days a week.

This morning started out very crazy. I was on my way to teach my 6:00 a.m. cycle class at the gym, and had pulled into the turn lane-when lo and behold, there was a dead deer laying right there in the center of the turn lane!! Of course, it was pitch black outside, and I didn't see it until it was too late, and WHAM, I hit the blasted thing!! UGH!! I was in Reid's car, and immediately there was this dragging sound. I was like, oh please do not even tell me that the friggin' thing is stuck to the bottom of my car!! So, I pull into the parking lot, and *whew* the deer is not stuck to the bottom of my car, but this little guard thing on the bottom as pulled loose. See Reid's blog for a picture! So, I teach my class (heart totally racing, and totally shaken up!), come home, get Ella dressed and ready to go, get her some breakfast to take in the car, and I take her to Walmart to get some duck tape, hoping this will temporarily help the situation so that Reid can actually get to work without the part dragging along. Come home, Reid comes out takes a look at the car, decides that it can't be taped up, so proceeds to remove the loose part. While this is going on, Cooper wakes up, I go up and change his diaper, bring him down, put him in the stroller with his breakfast so that he can sit out with Reid while he fixes the car, and I take Ella to school!!

Yikes! What a morning! But Ella was a trooper, and went with the flow, had an awesome time at school and came home very excited! She even came home with a little ring of 5 "sight words" (Words they memorize and learn by sight-they will get a new set to add to the ring every month)-which I was excited to see, and she was very anxious to have me go through them with her. It looks as though this is going to be a great year for her, and I am looking forward to see what is in store!
