Mellow Yellow

Does anyone drink that anymore? Do they even make it? Was it a Pepsi Product or a Coke Product?

Today was YELLOW day. Chandler is really getting into this color week thing. Everyday on the way home from school she tells me what color she is supposed to wear the next day. Tonight at dinner she announced for us all, "Tomorrow is GREEN day!" I thought that was funny... I immediately thought of the band, Green Day.
**Please note: I am in NO WAY promoting Green Day the band. :)

I did NOT ask her to pose. In fact she walked right outside and said, "Ready Mom!"
Thanks to Jonathan and Amy for the fabulous yellow shirt... they brought it back from Alaska this past spring. It was PERFECT for today!

Chandler had a great day today. It started out a little rough. She has a stopped up nose and she must not have slept all that well last night... she was slightly emotional this morning.

When we got to school she asked me to walk her into the gym... Everyday we have been early. The teachers have asked the Kindergarten students to be at school by 7:30 so that they can walk together as a class to their room. We've been at school by 7:20 every morning...

Because of her emotional state this morning, we were running a little behind. Not technically late (they are tardy at 7:45), but we got there after the kindergarten kids had left the gym. One of the teachers recognized Chandler (I hope that's not a bad thing!!!) and told us to go on down to her class. I asked if it was ok for me to walk with her... It was. :)

I took her down to her class. On the way we passed Tito, the boy she "bonked on the hand" last Thursday. Apparently, Tito doesn't speak any English... NONE AT ALL.

I left her at her classroom and told the teaching assistant that we were having "separation issues" this morning. She said that the kids that don't go through that the 1st week of school usually experience it the 2nd week. GREAT! FABULOUS! I was really hoping that we were on a roll... PLEASE don't tell me she is going to regress on me! :)

No clip movement today! :)

Good heavens, you have to start school at 7:30? We don't start until 8:30 here, and I find that to be a bit of stretch most mornings!

I think yellow should be Chandler's signature color. She looks terrific in it!

Oooh, Mellow Yellow. I forgot all about that. I don't think they make it anymore.

She's doing great! I like all of the different colored shirts ya'll have to come up with. Fun!

they definitely still make mello yello because my dad likes it. it's coke's version of mountain dew, and personally i think it's better than mountain dew, but i don't know which came first!

chandler looks pretty in all these colors, i think she's just a beautiful little girl!

i'm glad chandler is doing so well! the colors thing sounds like a blast! but i must admit i'm a little curious as to why they don't tell you a few days in advance of the colors?
