Alexis goes to school!

Alexis started preschool last week. She was so excited that she had her backpack packed a few days ahead of time with spare clothes and toys...they didn't make the final cut though. She was ready for at least 2 hours before school started the past 2 times. She talks about her teacher all day and is so excited about learning. I have tried all summer to get her to trace letters and she wouldn't for me, but she will for her teacher. She writes her name on everything, even on a check out of our checkbook. She got to celebrate her birthday Tuesday since she is a summer birthday and got to bring a treat. She choose fruit snacks, string cheese and cookies. She wanted to bring a pinata, but I figured that was a no go...haha! All the kids are members and so is her teacher, one of the kids is in our ward so we are carpooling. I am loving her teacher and the excitement Alexis has about school!

How cute is Alexis?! All grown up and ready for preschool? Isn't it a nice little break for the parents? I'll bet she'll just flourish in preschool since she is such a social butterfly.

Oh, and I love, love, love the pictures you had taken of her in the stream. She looked angelic.

So glad to hear that she loves it. My kids are always more willing to do things for others than for me.
