Anna's Day








We had a great day yesterday. It was Anna's actual birthday and her day to pick what we did. I can hardly believe I have a 6 year old! She started off the day eating her very own box of cereal which she picked out at the store. (Thanks for the tip Marla.) Later, she headed off to school for a 1/2 day with her treats in tow to share with her class. Right after school I met with her teacher and went over her report card with her. Anna is one of the top students in her class and we are so proud of her. Then we started with her list of to do's for the day. 1. Go get her makeup done. (The lady at Dillards was very nice and Anna looked so pretty.) 2. Go to the library. (Anna got her very own library card and checked out 10 books, we also played outside in the fountain behind the library.) 3. Eat at Pizza factory. (She loves the breadsticks and alfredo sauce. She also opened her presents here and ate some ice cream.) 4. Go to the park. (We can't get enough of this place.) 5. Go to my volleyball game. (Okay, this one wasn't really on her list, but she gladly added it for me.)
