Last Day of School

Last week was Ava Lu's last day of her 2-year old Friday preschool class. She completed her first class with ease :). She loved going every Friday morning to see Miss Paula and her friends Kira, Marshall, Eva and others! So cute to see them all singing, clapping, playing and learning to share (not so cute at times).

We had a party at the park on the last day. Miss Lu rode the merry-go-round again and again and again (is that what you call the push ride at the park? I can't recall). It was such fun seeing how all the children had grown and become little friends in just nine months.

Of course, Ava never misses a chance to play in the sand or water with shovels if she has a chance!

We'll look forward to seeing some of her class friends over the summer in the neighborhood.

Or, we'll see you in the fall,

Ava Lu turns 3

As sweet as can be, Ava Lu turns 3!

We had a Fun in the Sun party complete with a sprinkler pool and cupcakes. True to form, Ava Lu took a plunge in the pool before I was able to get a posed photo of the b-day girl in her sundress and bow. Oh well.

Here she is in all of her 3-year old glory.

She loved her party with her friends - she told me "mommy, I having fun, party and friends." That's my girl - is there anything better than good people, good food and presents? Didn't think so!

Thanks to those who came to celebrate and those who sent their loving wishes and gifts through the mail. We are always so amazed by the love and support of our family and friends. We know Ava Lu is special to so many!

If you have any tips on raising a spirited 3 year old, share away!
