don’t touch Kajsa’s hair–not today.

Do not touch my hair pleas

This afternoon she spent about 20 minutes putting every barrette she owns on her head–at least every barrette she can locate. She’s quite pleased with herself. After dancing around with her barrette-loaded-hair for a few minutes, she got to work crafting a sign which reads, “Do not touch my hair pleas.” She taped the sign to the front of her shirt… then somehow to the back of her shirt… then finally to her leg.

Barrettes R Us

“This way,” she explained to me, “nobody will touch my hair. Nobody. Not even my family. Unless a barrette falls. Then my family can help.”

So if you were thinking about touching Kajsa’s hair today, I’d wait until tomorrow, at least.

the end of an era

30 05 2012

Today was Kajsa’s last official day of preschool. Tomorrow is the school program and picnic, at a local park. So we’ll see her friends and teachers again tomorrow. But today was the last day that we dropped our 4 year old off for preschool, picked her up from preschool, chatted with the other parents about this and that. I’ll miss these days! It’s hard to believe she’s going to Kindergarten next year, but it is that time.

waving goodbye to friends

It’s been a gift for us, that Kajsa’s preschool happens to be the church preschool. It’s also been a gift that we have such a short commute. Today after school, as we were all walking home, Kajsa wanted to stand with Jim and wave goodbye to all her friends, as they rode out of the church parking lot.

It’s the end of one era, and the beginning of another one.

Watch out, elementary school!
