Here are a some more videos of Juliette. We got a few inches of fresh powder the last night we were there, and took advantage of it the next morning before leaving.
Here are a few videos from Christmas day and our annual holiday trip to Lutsen the day after Christmas. I hope you enjoy them!
She did great her first day!
Daddy said on the way home from grandma’s it was “Miss Ann this” and “Miss Ann that” the whole way.
When I asked her to tell me all about her day, she said she couldn’t remember all of it, but what she could remember was:
– she got to be the first leader in the class parade
– Jacob cried because he didn’t get to say goodbye to his mommy (this is her friend she already knows)
– she got to play with blue play-do
– she used the little kids potty and thought she was going to fall in, but it was OK cause she didn’t
– she got in trouble for taking off her shoes and Miss Ann says they always have to keep their shoes on during school
– she only played with little girls who had cute sandals on like she did (oh dear!)
– she learned how to drink from the water fountain, you have to put your lips together just like this
– she got to cut paper with class scissors
– she learned how to draw a straight line and brought home her art project
And i think there was more I forgot already. So far, the judgment is, no wall flower this one!
Grandma did say when she picked her up that Miss Ann made a comment that “she appears to be quite a bright child!”
She was in a very chipper mode all night. Harald’s cousin, Inger, who is visiting from Norway was over for dinner last night along with H’s folks, and I can tell Juliette has really taken to Inger (she even wanted to give her a hug goodnight after she got her pajamas on), so that helped animate her too.
Tomorrow is day 2 of school – I can hardly wait to see what that brings!
She was ready and eager to take off to school for her first day of class. But she’s so full of spunk today, I’m not sure that bodes well for her or not. Guess we’ll find out when we pick her up from Grandma’s house this afternoon. There was so much going on in the classroom when we got there, I am very interested to know how the first day goes. And I did very well myself, didn’t shed a tear, though I know today is the beginning of her peer group becoming increasingly influential in her life. I don’t want her to live a sheltered life, and I want her to do well in groups and learn how to be part of a team, but I don’t want the process to change her too much. Oh, well, I guess this is one of only many things to come that will pretty much be completely out of my hands.
She got her new furniture delivered yesterday and was too eager to go to bed in her new bed last night. She slept all night in her new bed, snug as a bug in a rug.
We spent the afternoon in Carabelle, one of our favorite places. So much better today after our urgent care scare last night with her 104 temperature. But children recover amazingly quickly.
The reception for Kristen and Bill’s wedding on June 30th took place in our back yard, and I have more pictures to share later, but when I was cleaning the camera just now I came across this one that I had to share.
We drove up to Alexandria today for cousin Desiree’s birthday party. Juliette had so much fun in the playground and in the pool and with the hose toy. Thought you might like to see the videos I took with my iPhone at the party.
They got their fancy dresses on and had a great tea party Thursday night with the new china tea set Granny Bama sent. The only thing missing was cousin Desi.
She had a blast playing in her new play house with Uncle Johnny when he and Auntie Di came over this morning.
