Fabulous at Five

I still sometimes wonder how this baby

became this little girl (who wants to be a cheerleader/teacher/mom/artist when she grows up)

She had a great week!  We celebrated as a family at Chuck E. Cheese on a very quiet Wednesday night.  Thursday she gave two new books to her classroom (they don't do class parties) and then had five friends over for a party today.  Here's some pictures of the fun.

Happy Birthday to our beautiful girl.  Ali, you are joy to all who know you!

First Day of School

Ali's now a week into to school and loves it.  She's is learning to "sit smart", practicing all kinds of school routines and making new friends.  Here's a few pictures from the first day.

 Leaving the house on the first day.

 After we dropped off Josiah at school, we went and had coffee (or hot chocolate in Ali's case) and talked about her goals for the year.  She decided she wanted to have the chance to write on the board and read a hard book ("like my Dora books")  I'm looking forward to seeing if she meets her goals!

We picked up a gift card for her teacher and she drew a card for her.  It's a bit hard to see, but it is a picture of Ali and her teacher smelling some flowers.

I'm sure you will hear more about school as the year goes on!
