Teddy Bear Picnic

In kindergarten for the last two weeks they have been studying colors. The kids were supposed to dress in a certain color everyday. Skylar thoroughly enjoyed selecting clothes for each day, and I must say it really helped in the morning decision making. They ended their color week with brown and had a Teddy Bear Picnic. They were supposed to take a teddy bear to school and then for a few minutes in the afternoon, they picniced outside. (Which taking a teddy bear was quite a task considering the 3 million stuffed animals we have are currently in storage. We did manage to come up with something though.) Parents were invited to come, but I wasn't sure if I could get away, so I never told Skylar I was coming. Kevin ended up being off work today, so he was able to show up for a few minutes as well. Anyway, I got someone to cover my class and we both showed up thinking she would be surprised and happy to see us. When she saw us standing there, she looked up and said "I didn't say you could come." Well, ok. So much for that. I guess my shy little girl is really breaking into her independence. I thought they were supposed to be a little older before they started thinking their parents were dorks.

Although I'm a little disappointed that she doesn't want me around, I'm so glad that she loves school and is turning into such an independent, responsible little girl.
