Finally! Getting Around to Her Stepping Stone!

These pics are all out of order and I'm way too tired (and in need of a nap) to change them.
We finally got around to making Sophia's yearly stepping stone. We were supposed to do it during her birthday week. Well, better late than never right?

And good news! The grass is growing back quickly!!! YEA!!!! I just might get my gallery frames hung up before the end of the summer after all.

Sophia picked the glass stones we used for the mosaic. She loves the color blue lately! 

She even helped put them on the stepping stone.

Very proud of her handiwork.
Look at how much her foot has grown in a year (and almost 2 months)! She wears a size 10.  And she's grown about 5 1/2 inches in a year too!

The Greatest Show on Earth

Sophia's most recent field trip at PK was to the circus. It was at the AAC. And for those of you that know me well, you know how much I hate driving to Dallas. But it was well worth it!

Before the show began, the kids could go down to the circus floor and watch the performers.

Because it was so crazy crowded down there, we opted to watch from the stands.

Our favorite things about the circus were the elephants.....

....and the tigers.

Our least favorite thing was the clowns.

The acrobats were pretty cool too!

We got there at 9:30 a.m. The show started at 10:20 ish. We left at 12:30ish. Sophia was ready. And so were the kids. All they'd had to eat since breakfast was popcorn.

All in all, it was a great field trip! And the good news is, Sophia did not freak out when she saw the clowns. Granted, they were far away but I still count that as progress.
