Pool Time!!

Last weekend we pulled out the kiddie pool! The kiddos had a lot of fun!! (and I think it's time to pull out our bigger pool! :) haha!)
I couldn't find Diya's swimsuit, so this one is a little small :) (I've found it since then) :) Diya LOVED the pool! She would have played all day!!!
Aashini lost interest in the pool after a while... but Diya kept on playing :) (although Aashini did have fun for a long time squirting her water gun from the balcony :) haha! They had fun :)

A Diya Post :)

Diya is a funny crazy kid! She's grown so much in the last month it's crazy!! She has 4 teeth on the bottom (two front middle teeth and 2 molars!) and 6 on the top (4 front middle and 2 molars) and has one coming in right now :)

We were at McDonald's the other day and this family was playing with Diya. She wouldn't let them give her any fries though - she kept making this face :) haha!
Diya LOVES ice cream :)
Diya is really great at eating with a spoon now. She LOVES eating with a spoon! She likes to eat cereal in the morning and just about anything we give her she will eat if it's in a bowl with a spoon :) haha! Here she is eating some chili :)
Diya LOVES crayons! Her attention span with coloring isn't very long, but she loves to color a little here and there and LOVES to carry crayons around (which we don't let her do because then she marks on everything!). It's hard to keep the crayons away from her!
Diya is a sweet funny little girl :)

Catching Up - Aashini :)

I know I've been horribly behind on blogging... time has been quite limited lately :) Anyway, here is a blog post of some Aashini pictures over the last month :) Aashini loves the Backyardigans. They have one show where they are cowboys and Aashini loves it! There was some guy selling cowboy hats on the street the other day (at the traffic light) so we had to get one for her... she LOVED it! Here she is with her hat and stick horse :)
Here she is with her hat and lasso (jump rope) :)
Aashini loves the metro. This is an old picture (about a month old - Aashini has grown TONS since then!).
Here's a more recent pic on the metro (and yes, Aashini has a "princess wand" in her hand :) haha!)
Aashini likes to pose for pictures (sometimes) now :) haha! Awesome ;)
This picture cracks me up :) Aashini got a HUGE sticker this morning and it covered her whole hand :)
Here's Aashini at a play place. She loves the princess castle - it's her favorite one to play in :)
Aashini loves dress-up :)
This picture cracks me up :) Love it! :)

First Day of the School Year!!!

About a week and a half ago we started the new school year here!! The school schedule here is totally different from the school schedule in the US! The school year starts in April and then they let out for summer break in May & June and start back up in July.

Anyway, Aashini started Nursery this year!! She is at the same school she was before, just a different branch. This year for Nursery, she has a school uniform - so cute :) Diya wanted in on the "first day of school pictures" :) (I love how she's trying to pose like Aashini in this picture) :)
I think Aashini looks so big in this picture!!!
My girls!! :)
This is Aashini's new school! The picture isn't great (taken from a moving car) but you can see her school! She calls it her Princess Castle School :) It's right next to the metro (you can sort of see it in the top left corner of the picture). It's SUPER close to our house - we can walk to it!!!
Her school has a fun playground and a roller skating rink :)
The first day of school was only for the new kids. Diya got to come too :) They have a basement room that is HUGE and has a big indoor play area (they have an outdoor one too), ball pit, play houses, puzzles, games, etc! Diya had fun :)
The parents were supposed stay with the kids for the first day of school (it was a mini-day of school). Here's their lunch time (the 10:30 lunch time :)). They just had a simple meal this day (pakoras).
Here's the fun ball pit!!! It has a cool slide into it :)
Aashini love it :) It's such a fun new school! She's so big!!!!
Whoo hoo!!!
