Two more years then she'll be heading off to Kindergarten...the time is going to fly and I am trying to hold on to every second I can!
They had a little party and I wanted to make a "summery" themed cupcake to celebrate the beginning of their summer vacation.
I put them on a tray with "sand" (crushed graham crackers) and although they aren't in the picture I put a couple of little umbrellas around the cupcakes. I was remembering my dad's words..."Presentation is 90% of cooking".
Since the first day of school Lucy has taken "shy" to a whole new extreme! She barely spoke to her teachers or "her kids" as she calls her classmates. She wouldn't even say goodbye to her teachers when I would coome to pick her up. Abby was the same way when she was in 2K but she grew out of it a lot earlier than Lucy. Lucy was also the oldest in the class (she turned 3 about 2 weeks after school started) so I kept trying to tell her that this was her chance to show her stuff and be the oldest. Didn't work.
Everyday I took her to school I would ask her if she was going to talk to her teachers that day. Her response was either "I don't know" or "Probably" ;p Have I mentioned I think she is our most stubborn hard headed kid? :)
The past couple of weeks Lucy FINALLY did it! She started talking to her teachers AND playing with a couple of "her kids". Thanks Ms. Jennifer for all your patience and love for our little Lucy. You helped bring her out of her shell (it probably seemed more like a tooth extraction!)
I will always be grateful for your TLC with her. I wish you could have another month with her now that she's opening up...then again, I don't want to shatter any illusions you have of her...HA! You'll have to check on her next year in her 3K class and see what she's doing with her hair :) She's gone from about 15-20 hairclips to 6 braids...no telling what her sense of style will come up with next (oh yeah...and the boots)!
Lucy and Ms. Jennifer
