Complete with water coming out of the blowhole, eyes, and fins.
She was SOOOO excited to be going to soccer! Earlier in the day when I told her to go put on her soccer clothes, I just meant the clothes she would be wearing to practice (which she knew was her mermaid shirt and her black shorts) but she came down FULLY dressed, complete with socks and shin guards!
And Elsa had to be in the picture.
It was 50% off day at the thrift shop so we got Katie a new costume for like $2. And of course my shoes were still out, so…
We rarely look at the kids’ phones to see what pictures they’ve taken. But I did check Katie’s today. Here are some of my favorites dating back to last October.
Kudos to Julie for not freaking out and remembering to take a picture.
On the sidelines, relaxing, and chatting with a friend.
Black and gold for everyone! (Katie and I were planning on going to the morning program so we dressed for it as well. Also, I was excited to finally wear fall clothes!)
Since daddy was home this morning we got him in a pic, too—but he wasn’t spirited.
And then at school! Can you see Owen?
She then wanted to jump off the play structure that’s 6′ off the ground (that level behind her head). I told her it was too high and she might get hurt.
“No. I’ll just brush off my hands like this.” 😳
So I compromised and held her hand as she jumped. She still fell on her butt, bumped her knee, and was covered in wood chips…but she did it!
