Esther's Art

I have been scanning Esther's art into the computer so I can upload the images and make a photo book of all her art so far.  I thought I would share some of my favorites.

I think this is a dog.

"It's a big problem when bomb rolled in my condo.  The adult I would tell is Mrs. Neeson."
Can you tell we love the Pigeon books by Mo Willems?
So true, so true....
She didn't get to go to recess because she got into trouble.

First Day of First Grade!!

She picked out her outfit.  She hates to be "cute" so don't even think of calling her that.  The other day a boy asked her if she was a boy or a girl.  Esther told him without any embarrassment that she was indeed a girl but that she liked boy things.  That's my girl!

All went well today, except she didn't get her hot school lunch like she was supposed to.  Esther told me she ate the lunch I packed for her, which was actually her snack.  Gotta love the confusion of the first day(s).  Even though we all woke up at a horribly early hour (7am) and it was "before breakfast" as my dad always says, Esther did great.  She did say school was "really long" and was boring at times.
