The girls heading off to school for the FIRST time enrolled together!
Yes, Ava's now in school. Loves it!
She's in 1st grade (tho age-wise should be in 2nd).
Feeling peer-pressure already,
following enrollment in school came a haircut!
Okay, her long GORGEOUS hair
got in the way at the water fountain,
and the toilet, etc.
She was soooo exited and so brave.
Are you kidding me, that much?
Donated to Locks of Love.
Okay, this didn't phase Ava.
It made mommy tear up though.
Seriously, I think it was my first big mommy moment;
I felt like she was my baby growing up.
Ponytail cut off, next up a good wash and massage.
Wow, look at it!
Oh my, A-DORABLE!!!
The easiest hair; I'm sooo jealous.
Okay, enough mommy; you're making me feel self-conscious.
Stop it mommy! Put the camera away.
Yes, yes, I do love it mommy!
Why can't mommy ever get in these family photos?
Ava's first pumpkin patch and she chose a small pumpkin.
Only because that's what Eliza chose!
Next year she'll want the biggest pumpkin.
Obviously, this was a week of firsts: school, haircut, pumpkin patch. She had a great week. She's very happy. We even looked at some foster family pictures the other day and she was all smiles and telling us all about the pictures. She came up later and gave me a big hug and said (in english) I love you mommy!
