In the car the other day, we were headed home so we both could take a nap because we are both trying to shake off colds. The Kid declared that she didn't "never ever" want to take a nap because she wasn't tired and it makes her nose get stuffed up. I didn't say any more about the nap, but we were quiet for a minute.
I looked in the mirror to see her rubbing her eyes and yawning.
Me: Honey, are you tired?
The Kid: NO!
Me: Then why were you yawning?
The Kid: I wasn't.
Me: Then why were you rubbing your eyes?
The Kid: Because my eyes were sweating.
Of course they were. And when we got home, she was asleep about 5 seconds after she put her head on the pillow.

The Kid has been making up lots of songs lately. This one was a story about a dragon. And the 'ding' is so she knows when to turn the page. She thought I was just taking a picture of her singing, but she didn't want me to do it until she was at the end of the song.

Here's The Kid, a T-Rex and just the tippy top of Auntie J's head. Sorry about the crappy pictures. I only had my cell phone camera.

When I picked up The Kid, she told me she wanted ice cream. On our way there, I kept trying to get details out of her about her new school and her first day. And even as we sat down to have our ice cream, I kept asking her questions. Finally, she sighed and said "Can we just enjoy our ice cream?" Okay, then! Here she is, enjoying her ice cream.
All in all, I think it was a good day and that she didn't have much to report because they mostly went over the class rules. Maybe she'll have more to tell tomorrow!
Here's The Kid getting a green phoenix painted on her arm.
The Queen made her a princess, complete with a certificate!
The Kid and the Fairy Queen
The Kid and a Medieval lass
She got to dig for buried treasure!
The Kid and two dragon heads
The Freak Show rubbed off on her a little bit, I think.
Chillin' on her fairy toadstool.

She also enjoyed getting dirtier than she has ever been. Those used to be white shorts.
In the bowl is The Kid's friend, Elsie the caterpillar. She wanted to keep it forever and ever because it was her friend. But, Auntie J and I finally talked her into taking Elsie back to the woods where she was found so she could be with her mommy. (It was actually really pathetic. She was heartbroken over that caterpillar.)
Enjoying an early morning snack.
The Kid and N.
The sad thing is, my batteries died at some point and I never did end up getting a picture of all of us.

I did get some pictures where they were up and moving about, but they just came out blurry, so I won't make you look at those.
