Growing up {Baby Sofia}

Sofia is going to Kindergarten in the fall.
KINDERGARTEN!
Isn't that where giant, grown up children go?


 The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching."
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples."

It's funny, I drove through my school neighborhood today after teaching a guitar lesson and saw a few students I recognized on a neighbor's porch. I slowed down and one of the kids yelled, "I'm in your class this year, Mr. Z."

I asked him if I should be scared.

He said I should be...

I can't wait.

Why do kids grow up so fast??
Can my baby be 44 next week???
Why do they get grown up and I stay 39?
Have a wonderful weekend.
Love your photos.

I want the name of the person who let her grow up! Such a beauty.
The joke is funny.
It was a joke right?
I hope God didn't see the bag of chips I just ate....I had more than my fair share.

That is a funny story. I am sure God would approve an additional apple of two. :) Great first shot!
