Catching up on a bunch of pictures from September and the beginning of October so far --

One morning we saw a beautiful rainbow while we were outside waiting for Ella's bus, it was such a great way to start the day
Her best pirate pose at the store
Beautiful sky at the park at Ella's soccer practice
Ella wanted to try these glasses on and wanted a picture so she could see what they look like

We had a great visit from Mom a few weeks ago.
At the school cafeteria for lunch with Ella
Fun morning at the bookstore for a Curious George event
And we finally got a hair cut for the little lady! (She had been refusing a hair cut for months because she wanted to 'grow it like Rapunzel's'...fortunately she finally relented!)
For a post-haircut treat, Mom took us to get manicures
Mom and Erin should appreciate this one - Ella got her first writing assignment consequence a few weeks ago. She was mad at me one day after school and unfairly took it out on Alyssa (her after school babysitter). After Alyssa had gone home for the day and Ella and I talked about it, she wrote the two 'letters' below. She put them in the mailbox and was excited for Alyssa to read them the next day. She apologized and was happy to give the letters, and Alyssa was very appreciative. So, good lesson learned and I'm sure will be the first of many writing consequences!
She is ready for Halloween! The first Halloween catalog arrived and she fell asleep holding it that night :)
Beautiful sunset in Seabrook
Tea party with Ricky
In exciting backyard news, our caterpillars are back!
And Ella has been excited that she has this cute little guy on her bathroom window several nights the last few weeks
