At Last...

This is a phrase that Arielle seems to use over and over again...it never fails to make me smile when I hear her say it! Even when she uses it in the completely wrong way, gramatically speaking, it somehow makes sense to me and I can understand why she said it.

"At last" the summer is coming to an end...where have all the warm days gone? Arielle is going to be starting in a new pre-school class at the beginning of September. I don't feel like either one of us is ready for another change but at the same time I can't wait for something different to begin. I am starting to feel restless {hence the reason for redecorating the master bedroom} and perhaps Arielle is too because she keeps doing things that she knows are wrong {like eating lip gloss and putting stickers on furniture}. I can't wait for her to start putting her strong mind to good use at school...learning to read and write seems so far away but really it isn't. I keep working with her on the number and alphabet flashcards in the hopes that this notion will come sooner than later. For now, she continues to put her mind to good use in other ways that are far more appealing like pretending to be princesses and throwing tea parties for her stuffed animal friends.
