Jump Start Graduation

Jump Start is an early literacy program run by college students who have been coming to Elizabeth's Day care twice a week all year.  They have done many cool activities with the kids to help get them ready for school.  Last Wednesday was their last day, and so they had a graduation for the kids.  It was a little emotional for me because it felt like the beginning of the end of Elizabeth's preschool life.  She will be at her day care until the end of August, but this was the first "ending."  I know on her last day of Day Care, I am going to be Super Emotional....

I took her out for a celebratory ice cream afterward...Gotta love the goofy expression :)

Fun with stamps

This week at Elizabeth's school, they are doing a unit on mail.  Her teacher sent me these pics of Miss E making stamps :)

Our Sunday

This past Sunday at Church, Elizabeth had the oppurtunity to sing in the children's choir, and she did great!  She was the youngest one to participate, and she seemed to really like it, and knew all thewords to the songs :)  I was soooo proud of her!

After Church, I took her to Monkey Joe's, one of her favorite places.  It's an indoor playground type place.  Very noisy and crowded, but Miss E loves it...

I love 3 day weekends!!

This past weekend was a long weekend for us, since Monday was a state holiday- Patriot's Day (aka Marathon Monday) here in MA. The weather was amazing, warm and sunny all three days! I was very relieved that the weather was nice on Saturday, since I had a arranged a picnic/playdate at the playground for the families at Elizabeth's school for that day.

On Sunday, we went to Church, then E tried roller skating at Maria's house :)
Then later, we went to my parents' where E rode on her friends' scooter.

On Monday, it was almost 90 degrees in Boston (!!!), so we went with some friends up to Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester for the afternoon. Beautiful, and so much fun!! We were amazed when we got there how crowded it was. It looked and felt more like 4th of July then mid April!

The Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy made a joint appearance!

We had a great Easter! Elizabeth got to go on two more Easter egg hunts, one at Church, and one later on at Grandma and Grandpa's with her cousins. Also, Elizabeth woke up to find an Easter basket full of goodies from the Easter Bunny :)
They had a couple of bunnies at Church for the kids to pet, too...

Hunting for yet more chocolate at the Grandparents'...

And in other really big news (to us, anyway!), right before bedtime tonight, Elizabeth's loose tooth came out!! Yep, at the age of 4 years and almost 9 months, Miss E has lost her first baby tooth...gulp!! She needs to stop all this growing up stuff...:) She excitedly put her tiny little tooth under her pillow, and the Tooth Fairy dutifully showed up and left her a silver dollar. So it was pretty busy around here on Easter, with Easter Bunnies and Tooth Fairies coming and going...So much fun, and a vast improvment from last easter when poor E was sick and we stayed home most of the day.

Easter Egg hunt

This morning we went to an Easter Egg hunt at E's BFF's house. So much fun! :)
LOL, she looks grossed out about something in this picture!
The hunt was following by a walk to the Playground...
