we've had two celebrations this weekend. friday mary had her first day of school. we actually had a first day of school (trial) on monday too, but we didn't love the school so we decided on another one which i think is going to be great. more about school later... but here we are off to mary's first day of school.
don't mind my squished cheeks. my power ranger helmet is tight and safe!
and then on saturday mary went poop in the potty. yep, we're having some REAL trouble with that. she's been trained for three months for numer one but we have a long struggle almost every day for two... even if we put her in a pull up. anyways, we will take the small victory and celebrate. took her on a motorcycle ride to get "ice cream" (or a fruit bar) and we sat on a curb by these huge letters that she likes. they're in this big neighborhood and she always talks about the green letters... they aren't even letters, they're just a design but she says that it says "M-A-R-Y".
