So Big and So Busy!

Kirstyn has been very busy the past few days. I am just running around trying to keep up and remember to take pictures so that I won't forget all of these moments!

First, on Friday night we went to her "Going to Big Church Party." See, at our church, when they are four they start going to worship with us so that they can learn and model how we worship. Anyway, on Friday night we went to this party where we had a short pretend worship service so that we could role play how we would act on Sunday. They got to witness a "baptism" and learn that there is nothing magic about our water, they got to taste the grape juice and stale crackers that we use for the Lord's Supper so that they understand it is not about what it is but about what it represents. Then they got to have cookies and lemonade with our pastor and other ministers. Kirstyn really had a good time and was very excited on Saturday morning at 6:30 am when she arrived by my bed with her "Big Church Bag" they gave her on her arm all ready to go to church. She was a little disappointed to learn that she had one more 'after bed' before going to big church but was then excited to get to watch Scooby Doo so that I could catch another 30 minutes of sleep (I know, Mom of the Year...brain rot here we come...I need my sleep so that I can be nice!!!)!


Then, Sunday arrived and she got to go to Big Church! She was very excited and did VERY well during the service. The 4 year olds were all invited to the stage at the beginning to sing "Jesus Loves Me" with the pastor. Kirstyn really enjoyed watching herself on the big screen!

Yesterday was also a very busy day! First in the morning she had "Meet the Teacher" at her pre-school. David took her to that so that he could also meet her teachers and so that I would not have to miss my Weight Watchers meeting. She is very excited and thinks that her teachers are "really pretty and have cute shoes."

Then after that, we had an exciting 'Girl's Day' planned. We went with her friends Trinity and Mabrie and their mommies to Sweet and Sassy, a hair salon for little girls, to get the girls all haircuts. After their haircuts we took them to lunch together. Kirstyn kept saying that she wanted her hair cut short so I had them cut it just short enough to make her happy and so that I can still put it up in pig tails or a pony tail when she has dance and school. She hates having any hair on her face so I knew this was important. Even during the haircut she kept saying "itchy nose, itchy nose" because her little baby hairs were touching her face.



Then we went to the office to show off the new hair-doo to Mimi, Grandpa, and Daddy. That is where she received her last surprise of the day.... a DVD that she has been asking for for MONTHS now... Ariel's Beginnings. We have already watched it and I have to say that it was pretty good but the beginning of it had the 'classic Disney' treatment of the mom (aka Nemo's mom, Bambi's mom, etc)...

Tomorrow she starts her last year of preschool because next fall she will be in Kindergarten. I really can't believe that the time has gone so fast and she has gotten so big!

Wow, what a busy couple of days! I really like the girls day. I might have to do that with my girls. I'm doing preschool with Lily this year at home trying to get her ready for kindergarten next year.
