A Lesson Learned from Preschool

Preschool is done for the summer, but Abigail has not forgotten a lesson she learned in class...

She told us a few different times during the year that her teachers would tell children in the class, "You get what you get, and you don't get upset" when they complained about their snack, toy, book, etc.  Coley and I thought it was a clever way to teach the children to not whine or complain.

On Father's Day, Abigail woke up early.  She wanted to give Daddy his presents before we went to Church.  As she gave Coley his gifts, she said, "You get what you get, and you don't get upset."  What can you say in response to that?

P.S. Coley loved his presents!

Abby's First Dance Recital

Yesterday was Abby's first dance recital.  Her class performed a number called "Bumblebee Boogie."  The little girls were absolutely darling.  They didn't remember all the steps, but they sure looked like they were having fun on stage!  Abigail decided to add her own bit of creativity to the end of the dance by throwing in a few twirls.  I think she likes the stage!
 Abigail is all ready to perform.

 Abigail (far right) doesn't seem scared at all to be on stage during the dress rehearsal.

 Abigail hugs her little friend while hanging out in the dressing room during the show.

Our Little Artist

Abigail is becoming quite the little artist.  A couple of days ago, Abigail spotted a pink monkey cut out from the Cricut machine on my craft table.  She asked me if she could have it.  Once she was given the okay, she grabbed a white piece of paper and disappeared into her room.  A little while later, she returned and gave me this picture, complete with the monkey taped to the paper.  I'm still rather amazed when I look at it.

End-of-the-Year Party at Preschool

Time seems to be flying!  Abigail's last day of preschool for the year was last Thursday.The children did a little musical parade and sang songs for their families.  It was really cute!  I think Abby will miss her classmates and teachers.  She is already asking me why it is over. 
 Abigail is all ready to perform.  She is growing up so fast!

Abigail sings songs with her classmates.  Unfortunately, I was sitting too far away to get great pictures. 

Abby sits with her friend, Cecilia.  She's eyeing her cookie...

Next year, Abigail will attend the same preschool.  She is excited that she will be old enough to attend the three day class.
