This week has been busy, scrolling through social media has me convinced that we are the only school system in the country who goes to school until the day before Christmas Eve, and fitting in everything while still getting me to work & Waverly to school has been a little crazy. I had my class party with my preschoolers on Tuesday, and then we did Waverly’s the following day, which was so precious!! As bittersweet as it is to watch her grow, I absolutely love seeing her in her element, giggling and holding hands with her best little girlfriends in her class. She had about a million Christmas crafts in her book bag to bring home, the sweetest plate with her handprints on it, and a letter to Santa where she asked for a “turtle, a kite, and roller skates”. None of which she has ever, ever mentioned before. 😉 Waverly also had her dance class holiday performance (which I loved watching, while simultaneously attempting to keep Avalon from storming the stage with her).
Big news, Avalon learned how to say Santa!!!! Favorite parts of Christmas for her so far include any activity that involves sugar or sweets and looking at any lights (she says “liiiiiiiights”), she could care less about unwrapping presents and would rather her big sister do that work for her. She has been rocking this red hat with poms for most of the month and I never want to forget how sweet her little face looks in it, with her bright blue eyes and chunky cheeks.
