I've noticed that a lot of moms love to brag about how smart their young kids are. No, my four-year-old can't read yet, she can't tell the time, she doesn't know math, but she's definitely not lacking in the imagination or creativity department. In fact, she is the most creative and imaginative kid I've ever known, and in my opinion, that's better than being smart!
Here's one of her inventions--a horse (or unicorn) plow. She made this up all herself. I thought it was pretty cool and creative!
One of her recent obsessions has been paper wings. She wants all of her animals to have wings so she cuts out pieces of paper and tapes them onto her animals. It wasn't long, however, before she wanted them on herself and on her mom and dad! Here's a pair of her wings and a pair she's putting on me. 


She is also a very good little helper! Maybe she'll be able to cut Jack's hair for me eventually!

This girl loves to PLAY! She's great at playing pretend and is an animal more than she is a girl. Here she is pretending to be Shamu.

One day, she decided she wanted a fin instead of wings. We got one and so did her beluga whale.

Isn't she cute?!

And here she is being a horse--bridle and all! I love having such a creative kid!

First Day of Preschool

Skye started preschool last week. It's something we've talked about and looked forward to for quite some time now, but she ended up being a little nervous her first day. She was saying things like, "I don't like going places without Mommy." Even though I've been really excited about having some time to myself with her at preschool, I ended up feeling nervous and a little sad myself. However, when I picked her up that day, she was sooooo happy! She talked non-stop for the longest time about all the things she did and how much fun she had. She has even been disappointed on the days she doesn't have school! So we both feel better now! I'm glad she is such an adaptable and happy kid! Here she is just before leaving on her first day.

And she wanted to show off her new princess backpack!
