Teensy Starts Preschool!

I still haven't quite found my back-to-school groove, so this is a few days late. On Tuesday morning, my Teensy started preschool. Five other mothers and I are taking turns teaching a little co-op preschool; we bought a curriculum off of the Internet. Marlee was so excited to go to school like Maia and Mason.

Actually, I don't know if she was more excited to go to school or to wear her new animal print skirt I bought just for the occasion. When I went to snap the above photo, instead of saying "Cheese!" she happily piped, "Cheetah-licious!" What a funny girl, I tell you.

She enjoyed her first day of school and was thrilled to show me the little barn she made and all the animals she colored. She told me that they all got to pretend to be farm animals while they played a game. "Which farm animal were you?" I asked. She looked at me with a "Duh!" look on her face and replied, "A cheetah!" What was I thinking?

What a big girl! Pretty soon you'll be all alone with no kids. Time to think about number 5!

Could she get any cuter? How did you get your kids to say such funny stuff... never mind I know how you did it! Who am I talking to anyway? (:

They are so great at this age. I love her personality.

Ummm... you were tinking that Cheetahs and Farm Animals don't typically mix? Except at dinner time, of course!

She slays me!

Cheetah-licious. I need to find a way to work that into some conversations tomorrow. Too bad it's not testimony meeting...

Cheetah-licious! What a crack up! I noticed her LONG hair at church today. Wow! She is a pretty little thing.
