“I want to be a beaver”

Today Izzy started her first day of Preschool!  Woot!!!  Woot!!!
We were doing the usual first day of school photo and I asked her what she wanted to be when she grows up.  “I want to be a beaver!  They get to ride bikes, scooters, and eat fruit up in trees!”
Ha!  Totally makes sense.
Izzy was really excited about going to school today.  Probably reflects on how bored she has been hanging out with her ol’ ma since summer camp let out, but I’ll pretend it has nothing to do with that and that she’s just pumped to learn.
She came bouncing down the stairs this morning with her backpack packed and ready to go.  She had a ruler, pencil sharpener, eraser, a ruffled dress, matching head scarf, and a little bag of googly eyes.  I guess you just never know when you’re gonna have to bust out a craft project.  Fist bump to that!
Girl, you are a superstar.  Your Mommy, Daddy, Sam Jam, and Grandparents love you so much.  Go get ’em babe.

    Too cute. But saying you want to be a Beaver in our house will get ya a mouth full of hot sauce. We're Duck fans up in here. LOL Okay, that probably makes absolutely no sense to anyone other than an Oregonian.
    School starts for The Kid tomorrow morning. Yikes! And The Girl starts kindergarten on Monday. I can't believe how fast the summer went. Or the fact that I'll be home with Baby all. by. myself. for 8 hours every day. Holy moly.

    hahah LOVE what she packed in her bag! Already a little fashionista and diy crafter! She's definitely prepared. 🙂 And what a creative answer. You never know what they are going to say! Hope she's having a great time at preschool.
