Today was Annika's first day of preschool and boy was she excited. She has been going with me to drop-off and pick-up MacKayla for the last two years and she was ready for it to be her turn. Her teacher, Mrs. Jenny, was an aide for the last half of last year so we were able to get to know her a little bit before Annika started and that was neat. She really enjoyed her first day and can't wait to go again.
On Tuesday MacKayla was able to ride the bus to school for the first time and she thought that was just about the coolest thing ever. She let me take her to the bus stop on Tuesday but by Wednesday she was too grown up to allow me to come as well. I am still "allowed" to meet her at the bus at the end of the day.
We are getting ready for the coolest party ever at our house next weekend. If you haven't heard of it you have to check out www.houseparty.com. They are a company that sets you up with companies and allows you to try out new products first. We were selected to host the Fisher-Price party and we were sent four of their newest toys to play with and to have our friends come and play with. The toys are ours to keep and we get a small toy to give to our friends, it doesn't get much better than that...oh yeah, there will be food as well! Here are a few pictures of the girls playing with the new toys, and jsut because they are for the 6-36 month crowd, that doesn't stop my almost four year old and five year old from having a blast.
