Gardner Village

Before I have the baby I decided to take the kid to see the witches at Gardner Village. We love doing this every year and the kids have fun trying to find them all. Ella is pretty much the only one that wanted to cooperate for pictures!

I love this picture! Owen is keeping his eye on that witch, Ella is smiling away, and Tessa is CLEAR on the end of the bench.

Ella had Howdy day at preschool so we tried our best to find things around the house to dress her up! She had such a great time at preschool. She even got to ride a pony!

Ella's first day of Preschool

Ella was such a different experience than Owen on her first day of preschool. She loved every minute of it and couldn't wait to go! She even requested braids and this purple shirt. She made it so easy for me. Today over lunch (on her second day) she gave me more information about school than Owen did in his entire two years of preschool. Really...everything from what girls were wearing to what boys liked to hit and yell!  I had a good time talking to her.

Kindergarten is a big deal! Owen has been dreading this day but when it finally arrived he put his back pack on and said,"this is awesome"! It was a good day. His teacher is Mrs. Hillyard and she really is the cutest thing ever. Owen loved his first day and came home super excited.
