(yes, that's a horse sticker on her leg, sometimes ya just gotta go with it)
Ellie was equally excited about her new lunch box. It has a horse and her name on it, and each morning (MWF), she specifically requests to hold her "new pink lunch box." Side note: she has had a hair trim since these pictures were taken, so her mane is a little more under control.
Ellie's transition has been smooth as silk. No tears, eating and napping every day, and coming home talking about the slides on the playground, playing in the gym, and her new favorite toy: purple baby.
And lest we forget all the fun she had in Jr. Tots, here is her class picture, with the beloved Miss Julia.
