A Big day!

 
So, my plan WAS to dress her up in a cute outfit and take a picture for her first day of Pre-K.  As you can see that didn't happen, we were lucky to even get out the door on time.  If this is what is to come for the next 12 years in school something gotta give-she doesn't like to leave her big girl bed in the mornings.  Today consisted of me actually picking her up out of bed - at 41.5 lbs not an easy task anymore.  Hopefully kindergarten will get better but for the rest of this year she still needs to be up by 0515.

Big girl bed!

Saturday while out and about Gordon decided to go look at Big Girl beds - well you all know how this ended.  Sorry there was a glare in the room but didn't have time to get my  regular camera out.
The assembly has begun
New bed has arrived, inspector is checking it out for "bounce"
100 Good Wishes quite finally out of the closet
Checking out each square, and of course we had to get out the book to match the fabric to the wish.  
cuteness
1st big night-notice the pillows of the sides, this was before I added more.  She didn't fall out :)
This is what Meadow our Great Dane thought of having the crib mattress in her crate.
Kiss up!

Summer, all about the pool

Yep, for the next few months we spend a lot of time on the pool around here.  The overall avg temps right now are in the 90's with a "feels" like index of 105 degrees.
 Mia hopefully will master swimming by the end of the summer months, she has gotten pretty far so far after only a few weeks.  Last year she had lessons but at the beginning of this season she wasn't all too keen on swimming without her vest.  We saw a huge jump in her swimming abilities during a visit from our friends Christine, John 7 Hannah Rojas over the 4th of July weekend.  After a few hours in the pool she got her confidence level up and began swimming without her vest.  So far she can swim 1/2 the length of the pool then her bottom drops and she starts trying to walk instead of kicking.  Holding her breath is not a problem, she loves to jump in and try to touch the bottom.

Behind a little

Wow, how fast does time fly......here are a few pics from our Disney visit a few weeks ago.  Joy was in town for the weekend and Disney is where she & Mia wanted to go.  Mia lover her Joy.  While we were up there we ran into one of Mia's friends.  *Sorry, all taken with my new iphone & I haven't master that at all.
