there she grows!

Poppy @ the Halloween dance

Poppy's new glasses!!!

what my amazing daughter wanted to do on a no-school day:  go to the bookstore!

all of a sudden, my little baby girl is FIVE.  she started kindergarten in august, just after her birthday, and she had to get glasses (!!).  it sounds trite and cliche, but damn, time really does fly.

with regard to kindergarten, poppy's taking to it like a duck to water.  her reading ability was off the charts going in, but now i am seeing a lot of growth in math and writing and it's just the most beautiful thing to watch.  she's told me multitudinous times this fall that she loves school.  so awesome.  :)  she's also taking gymnastics and is in the daisy level of girl scouts.  very busy bee, this one!
