I know what you're thinking, but I promised Grandma Judy that I'd keep my political opinions off this blog. Therefore, the "Mission Accomplished" title does not refer to President Bush's declaration -- FIVE YEARS AGO -- that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended." No, I'm not going to go all political on your ass... no matter how corrupt, incompetent and embarrassing I might believe Dubya to be. He's just another out-of-touch neo-con Fascist -- who apparently has extremely high moral values -- but I've learned to accept this fact and am no longer bitter. Really. I've moved on.
Claire really likes to go down the slide... backwards. This little girl follows the beat of her own drum!
Momma had to leave early to get to a meeting, but Claire was too busy playing to tell Momma "bye-bye". After she noticed Momma was gone, Claire headed for the classroom door to try to go catch Momma in the parking lot. But she got distracted by a stuffed, purple bunny and went back to playtime...
Then it was class photo time. Is anyone else wondering, "why did Stew sit up front... so close to the camera?" Looking at this photo, I'm thinking Stew must go to the same hair stylist as Claire. Yikes!
Then it was snack time...
When Claire and the others were presented with their diplomas (plus a container of playdough hand-made by the teachers)!
Stew made ravioli for dinner last night, but he left the pasta sauce too close to the edge of the counter... within Claire's reach. Don't worry... it wasn't heated or anything. It was in tupperware awaiting placement in the refridgerator (more on the dangers of Tupperware in a future post).
And finally... here's Claire posing with her diploma (certificate) this morning. Congratulations, Claire!
