First Day of School Part 2

Right after I posted our pictures of Kaitlyn I hopped on Facebook to find that the school had posted some pictures that Kaitlyn was in.  Here they are…

First Day of School

Today was Kaitlyn’s first day of school.  She was very excited.  She woke up at 11:30 last night and asked if it was time to go to school yet.  Um, NO!

Here’s Kaitlyn lined up and ready to go in with some of her classmates.  The jumper and shorts/polo shirt uniform is optional for Pre-K.  They actually recommend that the Pre-K kids just wear the gym uniform (which is what Kaitlyn is wearing) every day.  So next year she will be in the cute jumper!Imported Photos 04740Imported Photos 04741

I’m not sure who was more excited about finding these for Kaitlyn’s lunch… me or her!Imported Photos 04742

When she got home this afternoon she was pretty worn out, but we did manage to get some details of her day out of her…

*She had a fire drill.

*She sat next to Jonah in class and at lunch and played with him on the playground.  (Jonah went to Kaitlyn’s old day care with her.  I’m glad she knew someone coming into Holy Cross, but I’m really hoping tomorrow she will branch out a bit and play with some of the other kids a bit more)

*She went to the library.

*She sang songs and met the music teacher.

*She drew a picture, but “I’m not telling you what”.  (Little snot, I can’t wait til she’s a teenager Smile)

*She can’t wait to go back tomorrow!

Funtown/ Splashtown

We had some free passes for Funtown/ Splashtown so we took Kaitlyn the other weekend.  She loved it! Besides the typical kiddie rides, she decided she wanted to try some bigger rides.  So despite my loathing of the bumper cars, I took her on them.  I still have the huge bruise on my knee to prove it.  She also wanted to try the Tilt-o-Whirl.  Yeah, she liked that for about 2 seconds.  I spent the entire ride telling her it was ok, it was almost over, close your eyes if you don’t like it… all the while holding her close and praying she wasn’t feeling sick.  Turns out it doesn’t make her sick she just doesn’t like how fast it goes.  Upside…  the Tilt-o-Whirl meant I didn’t have to ride the teacups with her Smile!

Let me just say…  the water was a tad chilly here!Imported Photos 04721Imported Photos 04723In case you can’t tell Kaitlyn is cold!

Imported Photos 04724Kaitlyn also played the “pick a duck” carnival game.  Figured for two bucks it wasn’t bad since everyone was guaranteed a prize, even if it was just the rubber duck.  Not Kaitlyn though…  she won the big prize!

Fun Day Out

A couple weeks ago, we took Kaitlyn mini-golfing.  Although it’s been a few months, she still cheats Smile!

Later that night, we went to the annual street fair at St. Peter’s.  We’ve been going since before Kaitlyn was born! 

I swear this slice of pizza was about the size of her head and she finished all but 2 or 3 bites!Imported Photos 04690

Making Sand Art together!  She picked the colors and squeezed them in.  I made sure she didn’t drop the bottle!Imported Photos 04692

All done!Imported Photos 04694

Kaitlyn’s favorite part every year…  the Bouncy house!Imported Photos 04696Imported Photos 04695Imported Photos 04700

North Woods Law/ Maine Day

The Sea Dogs recently hosted North Woods Law Day and Maine Day.  We love watching North Woods Law on TV, so we were really hoping to get tickets for this game.  For those of you not familiar with the show, it is a reality series on Animal Planet that follows the Maine Game Wardens. 

Kaitlyn before the game in the free sunglasses one of the local banks was handing out in front of the stadium.

For the “Maine Day” portion of the game, the concession stands were offering Maine food that they don’t usually carry.  I had a lobster roll for dinner.Imported Photos 04663

Kevin had some Moxie.  I guess I am now a true Mainer as I finally tried some too.Imported Photos 04665

When Slugger the Sea Dog arrived on his little tractor in the bottom of the first, he got an unexpected surprise.  Warden Curtis pulled him over, frisked him, and “arrested” him.  So cute!

And the Maine food continues…  Kaitlyn loves her whoopie pies!Imported Photos 04674

By the end of the night, we’d gotten almost everyone’s autograph.  We are really looking forward to the show coming back in the fall.  Their film crew was at the game, so we will have to see if we make the show!Imported Photos 04675
