|Her first day of school.|
Nothing but confidence.
Her confidence, her lack of anxiety, eased OUR anxiety. (I wrote about that HERE.)
|She sat right down and went to work.|
|This is all kinds of awesome.|
|(You can read about her tee-ball experience HERE.)|
|Daddy is forced to endure the spinny rides.|
|Snow White was the first princess we found|
|Peanut became a princess herself.|
|Googily was a little frisky this year.|
|A lot frisky, actually.|
Peanut learned a lot this year. She started riding a big girl's bike:
|(Training wheels still firmly ON.)|
|And thought night swimming was awesome.|
And we made some memories on the Jersey Shore, before it was forever changed:
|Casino Pier, Seaside Heights|
|Her first spin in the fun house barrel.|
(We went on this three times.)
|We had 6 unused tickets left.|
|We're #JerseyStrong for Christmas|
|She called this day "The Best Day Ever."|
(That earned it its own post.)
|We found a lot of shells and made up stories about them.|
|We also added a new member of the family.|
And we're happy to report "Pinky" is still alive and well.
|She actually won BOTH of these.|
An amazing feat.
|(Our camping adventure also earned its own post.)|
|On stage at her Stepping Up ceremony.|
I wrote about this milestone HERE.
|Paying very close attention at the ceremony.|
|And cutting quite the rug at the reception.|
But we cherish the small ones just as much, like when I took her puddle jumping on a rainy day after school:
We are head over heels for our little girl....
|She also taught ME to do THIS.|
|I love this picture because we're making the same|
|This picture was our Christmas card this year.|
|She also inspired our Halloween costumes.|
