I have scheduled Alise's two year old portrait with the Holtzclaw's on Tuesday. We're having them made outside at Kiroli Park. I am taking two outfits. We'll start out with the pony tails and red and white outfit that my mom got Alise for Valentine's Day. Then, hopefully, if she will still cooperate, we'll switch to the "Cinderella Dress #2." The weather is suppose to be nice.
I am anxious about Alise moving up to the two year old room tomorrow at school. Some mornings, believe it or not, if we get there early enough, they haven't divided the classes and so all the children are together in one room. And it's usually the two year old room they are grouped in. Alise won't go in there. She pitches a fit to go in her room although there isn't anybody there and so then Ms. Sandy and Ms. Mary start moving the kids to Alise's class. It's like, "Okay. I'm here. Let's all go to class." I hate that it's right here at her birthday and all her little friends that she invited will still be in the one year old room. That's just horrible. And then the other thing that I wanted to do on Friday was take some cupcakes to Alise's class so she could have a "party" at school. I guess that's out, now. Other than Mallory Stevens, I'm not sure who else Alise knows in her new class. Let's just pray she doesn't get bit the first day!! I like her new teachers. Ms. Betty is always nice and I have heard her compliment Alise. Ms. Gloria is nice, too. She dances with the kids. My baby is growing up and I guess I was just hoping that I could put off the new class until this fall, but The Yellow House is getting in some new students and so they have to make room for them. Oh! I just thought about something! I guess Alise's cubby (locker) will change sides of the wall. Her locker will move across the hall with the other two year olds. Oh my goodness! I just thought about something else! Alise's last summer at Yellow House will be next year! Next fall she will be going to Pre-K 3. I need to quit thinking. I'll cry myself in to oblivion.
Today Tiffany and I took Addison and Alise to the "Crawfish Festival" at the Civic Center. We didn't eat the crawfish, but we let the girls ride and ride and ride all the rides....what I like to call "fair rides". We bought the arm bands for $10 and the girls got to ride until their heart's content! They rode the trucks, the cars, the carousel, the bus, the three wheelers. The only ride we had to get them off of because they started crying was the motorcycle ride. I took lots of pictures. I'll try and post them later tonight!
