Last week was Emma's last week of pre-k. My how time flies. Just seems yesterday I took her to her first day. Oddly enough, I made her dress for the first day of pre-k and apparently for her last day of pre-k. The dress she has on above was a "first try" out of an old sheet. Guess I am going to have to get busy and plan for her first day of Kindergarten. She has grown so much over the past year, physically, emotionally and mentally. She is not a toddler anymore. She is a little girl. I miss that toddler, but boy do I have fun with my little girl!
On Memorial Day, we found a baby aligator snapping turtle, um, in the drive way. So I waited until Emma was home and then we took him to Claremore Lake where she could set him free and he would not get run over. This is the first snapping turtle I have seen in our neighborhood in AGES.. thank goodness. But where there is one, there is more. We have a pond in our neighborhood that is a true pond. Perch, turtles and who knows what else is in there. I know this, you could not pay me to go swim in the thing. No way!
Emma was very good about letting him go, but when we got back in the car it was "my turtle, I want my turtle, I miss my turtle." But, she got over that quickly enough and we went home. Alls well that ends well.
