Luci Update and a Fun Fall Festival

Luci started a new school in August at the beginning of the Fall Semester and we are LOVING it!  She is truly blossoming into a sweet little longer a baby.  I can't believe everything she has learned since August!  First and foremost...she is potty trained!  I can't take the credit for this.  It is all her teachers; miracle-workers!

I have to continue bragging just a little...she is also learning the sounds of the alphabet.  She knows s, m, a, r, t, c, o, l, b, and j.  She also knows several shapes: circle, triangle, oval, and diamond.  She is learning her colors and is beginning to count in both English and Spanish although she will occasionally interchange them.  We routinely hear "1, 2, 4, 6, 8" or 1, dos, 4, siete,..."  I am just truly amazed at everything she is doing at age 2!  I had lots of 5 and 6 year olds when I taught Kindergarten that struggled with these concepts.  Yes, I am a proud mommy!

This afternoon we attended the Fall Festival at Luci's school.  It was so much fun to see all her friends dressed up and watch Luci go through all the stations and games.  She wore her costume from last year because her new costume is quite warm and today was a very hot and humid October day.  We decided to save her new costume for Halloween night...hopefully it will be more characteristic of October!  The following pictures are from this afternoon.  Fun times!!!

"Arggg mateys!  I am ready to go pillage and plunder!"

Getting a spider painted on Luci's arm (she freaked out when they tried to paint her face!)
