Yesterday was the official one week celebration of the puppies being home. They are 8 weeks old now and clearly Mavis shows us who the mad scientist is between these two. She's already figured out the system. She rings the bell to go outside...sometimes because she has a job to do and sometimes because she just likes to play outside and chew on the tree. Franklin mostly just follows her lead and constantly tests his boundaries for chewing on stuff.
In fact if we could read his thought process, it would probably sound something like this: "What can I chew? What can I chew? Can I chew on this? How about this? What can I chew? What can I chew?"
Mavis on the other hand would sound more like this: "Hmmm, how do I get my people to open the door? The bell??? I understand now...yeeesssss....I ring the bell and they let me out! Aha!! Hmmmm, how do I get up on the couch? Let me see...What if I bite their foot? No!! That doesn't work. What if I stare really hard at my people with this adorable look? Tilt my head??? Eureka!! It worked!"

Last week Petite Artiste started dance. Her very first although she's been going all her life. Watching her big sister getting dropped off with Miss Sue every week and attending performances twice a year. This summer we found tap and soft shoes. We picked out tights and a leotard. When the day finally came, she was thrilled and had a blast.
Today, Petite Artiste finally got to go to preschool....finally! She was in heaven. Her class is made up of all siblings of past students. So much like dance class, she has been going to this preschool all her life. Watching her big sister getting dropped off. Seeing all the fun things and goings ons. She loves her teachers, the school, the cool tree house, awesome loft sandbox, and all the animals including a new member of the critter family. A chinchilla.

I know in my house, the hustle and bustle of the start of the day is less chaotic if the kids know what clothes they are wearing and where to find them.

We were all smiles this morning... However, once we got to school, El Fuego became a tad nervous and didn't talk much. I'm here to report he really, really loves his shoes and getting to wear them today just might have been the highlight of his day.
Miss Divine was practically an old pro at this game and she was ready to get the party started in spite of the two girls that were crying and clinging to their parents. I saw her brow crinkle for a brief second. In reading her expression I knew she was thinking "should I be scared too?" But a quick kiss and plead to smile for the camera brought out the girl we know and love.
See? There she is!!
