Sam usually wants to ride on a horse, but maybe she was waxing nostalgic today ‘coz she chose the elephant instead. The elephant was her favorite when she was younger, after upgrading from her beloved swan.
I took Sam to her favorite mall after school. Here she is on the carousel, reaching out to touch one of the horsies.
Sam got two stars in school today — one for being the first to correctly identify the color red and another for being the first to finish coloring this page in their workbook. Not a bad artistic effort from a girl who’s 3 1/2 years old. I joked that she should get SpongeBob’s good noodle stars.
Mommy, could you tell Daddy to stop fussing over me and taking my pic? This is school, you know.
Sam takes her seat. Two of her classmates are part of her condo barkada.
My wife Ellen was also excited over Sam’s first day of school… though not nearly as irrationally agitated as I was. Yes, I’m paranoid.
Sam showing off her school bag. She used this smaller bag yesterday, but since she already got her books yesterday, she used a bigger backpack this morning. Her uniform will be ready next week.
