CDC Family Picnic :)

Just before the weather started getting hot (I know! I waited too long to post it!), the kid's group at CDC (the chuch we go to) had a family picnic :)  Our girls LOVE picnics!  
 Aashini LOVES playing in the dirt and getting to eat lots of chips  and Diya loves getting a juice box :) haha!
 We had a lot of fun!  The kiddos had a lot of fun playing games.  Here they are playing Sharks and Minnows.
 Aashini LOVED it!  She really got into it :)
 cute :)
 Aashini's face here is cracking me up :)
 Hearing the instructions for the next game :)
 Diya being goofy!
 Doing a relay race :)
 They were supposed to run sideways, but Aashini ended up dragging her friend :) haha! :)

First Week of School! - Aashini - Prep

 Last week was Aashini's first week of Prep (Kindergarten).  She has quite the year ahead of her.  They are learning tons of new things this year.  It should be fun :)
 On the first day her backpack was SUPER full... she couldn't even stand up straight! haha! :)
 Adam taking her to school on the first day :)
 This is the sign Aashini was holding in the first picture... it was really hard to see, so here's a close-up.  You can see how she writes her name on the first day of Prep :)
 Talking to their teacher after class :) 
 This is their weekly schedule.  It looks like so much fun!  (For those that don't understand some of this... TBL is "Theme Based Learning" and Galaxy is time in the computer lab).
 She has 2 other uniforms... on Wednesdays she has Taekwondo and wears this uniform to school :)
 Fridays are "Club Days"... there are different clubs within the school.  Aashini is in the "Maestros Club".  She wears this uniform every Friday.  She'll be in the Maestros Club until she graduates.  
HaPpY First Week of School Aashini!!!!!

New Year - New School!

On Monday Aashini is going to start a new school year at a new school!   This past weekend we had her orientation.  This year she's starting "Prep" (Kindergarten) at her new school - Presidium.  For this year she'll get to stay in the same school building before going to the "big school" next year.  
Here is Aashini in her new classroom.  (I didn't get a good pic of it so I posted this one anyway) :)
 This is Aashini's new teacher.  She's super nice!
 The school's playground got a new climbing wall!  Here's Aashini trying it out :)
 Aashini playing on the climbing wall :)
All of Aashini's new school uniforms!  The green and denim is her regular daily uniform, top left is her taekwondo uniform (that she wears one day a week) and the middle is her "Club" uniform.  She'll be in this club her entire primary/secondary school career.  She wears that on Fridays.  I'll post pictures in her new uniforms this week :) 
 Here are all of her new school books and folders (along with 3 parenting books :)).  This year she starts Hindi writing!  Yikes!  Can't wait :)
