So now, you get a month in review. But this is what sometimes happens, and you get what you get and you don't get upset (do you think that line is used often in our house?)
So, Elle started Pre-K at the beginning of the month. I would like to say these seemed like a momentous occasion, but I'd be lying if I said that. She already went to the same dayschool, has the exact same classmates. I suppose the big differences were that she got to pick out school supplies, she decided she wanted to take her lunch every day & her day has become much more structured in preparation for kindergarten (we're not talking about that). Elle is learning a lot in school. One day, she came home to tell us our President of the United States of America was Barak Obama. "Did you know that?", she said? And she shares it like she's letting you in on a huge secret. Funny gal.
We also took Elle to her first OU game of the year. We prepped her for the noise, bought her earplugs (Hello Kitty!) and talked to her about all of the fun things that would happen. I think she brought a new perspective to our section - excited to see the ponies, the cheerleaders, the Ruf Neks, the fireworks and excited to yell. This game wasn't about winning or losing; it was about everything else that happens at the game. Despite the loss (oy vey), she had the best time and is SUPER excited for the next game (for which I'm fully prepared for us to lose...but that's another story for another day).
Here is what we learned from Elle at the game:
"dat big TV is super cool!" (the south end zone scoreboard...which is pretty cool).
"do you know in football it is ok to push people down!? but only in football"
"can you believe duh purple team does not want us to win!?" (our QB & O-line didn't want us to win, either!)
by the way, we're not saying we're #1. that's the whole OU thing..."there's only one Oklahoma".
she really wanted to see the classrooms. this was the best we could do...an auditorium in the student union.
