Preschool Part 2

Here is Hannah waiting for the door to open to her classroom.
Rachel and I got to stay with her the first day. Rachel loved playing with all the toys.

Hannah with a few of her classmates.
Rachel even got to eat snack with everyone.
They have lots of fun toys.

Hannah's first assignment was to decorate her name tag for her cubby.

Here she is playing in her cubby with Adam. They were sweet and let Rachel play, too.
More pictures coming soon.

My Preschooler!

It's official--Hannah is a preschooler! She started school a few weeks ago. These are the pictures from her first day. That darn silly face kept showing up but I did manage to get one happy smile.

(you can click on the photos to make them bigger)

On the morning of her first day Hannah wanted her fingernails painted. She picked bright red. Then she wanted a bright red clip for her hair to match. Then she picked her outfit: Spiderman shirt ("See, Mom? It matches!"), plaid shorts and glass slippers (a.k.a. sparkly Jelly sandals). I think she was the cutest (and most color coordinated) girl there. Hannah requested that Rachel wear her matching Spiderman shirt. And so she did.

We took the stroller and left early so we had plenty of time to get there. We were so glad that we did because on our way we stopped to look in the river (like we always do) and to our surprise there were fish! The salmon must have known it was a special day.

I'll be back tomorrow with more back to school pictures.

Mariners Game

For Dan's birthday we went to a Mariners game.

At the children's play area Rachel stayed pretty close to me while Hannah played on the structures.

When Hannah was little she used to ask us for "rickolish"
so now we always get some at the baseball game.

This girl loves hot dogs.

We got to wish Dan a happy birthday on the big screen! 30 is a pretty special birthday, after all.

Rachel was on the look-out for airplanes.

Dan with his girls.
Happy Birthday Dan! We hope it was a good one!

Kelsey Creek Farm

One of the days we ventured to Bellevue to Kelsey Creek Farm. It was such a beautiful day!

We packed our lunch and had a little picnic.
Rachel liked seeing all the birds--she kept shouting and pointing to the trees.

Such sweet sisters!

After lunch we stopped to play at the park for a while.

Picking flowers.

We eventually made it to the "farm" part. Rachel loved seeing all the animals.

It was such a fun day. I'm so glad we went.

Depot Park

Here we are at Depot Park.
These girls love the swings

Playing tag.

Hannah is such a good big sister--she was showing things to Rachel and they were so sweet together. I love having two girls.
