A perfect princess

I actually took this picture of Kaitlyn in her ringlets awhile ago, but I just loaded it onto my computer and it is so fun to play with pictures in iphoto that I had to post it. So this post is as much of an homage to my new imac as it is to my tiny princess in her ringlets, ribbons, and ruffles.

Chalk and School Clothes

So Isaac suggested that we play with chalk before pre-school and of course because covered in dusty pinks, purples, and greens. He was just so darn happy while he did it, I couldn't even scold him for dirtying up his school clothes before school.

Toe painting

This was our in between conference sessions activity. Isaac wanted to toe paint so I taped paper on the floor, squirted on finger paint, and let them go. Isaac was thrilled; it appealed to his artistic tendencies, the delight he gets from being a mess, and his hunger for thrill rides all at once. Kaitlyn was a little disgusted with me that I kept putting her feet in the paint and refused to get off the rug while Isaac created a multi colored slip 'n' slide. I also think they liked being hosed down afterward in the shower just as much as the walking in paint, or more in Kaitlyn's case. So per as Pres. Monson's request today will not be an empty yesterday (or lasterday as Isaac would say).

Kaitlyn on the computer

She thinks she's so grown up. Whenever I leave the computer open she climbs right up and starts to "work." She also cannot resist having her picture taken.
