lucy's "abc school"

allie and i signed lucy and audrey up for a parks and rec class called alphabet soup. the entire month leading up to the first class on october 27th, going to "school" was all lucy could talk about. on their first day they had a halloween party, so all the kids came dressed up in costumes. lucy went as princess leia and was hoping audrey would go as darth vader so she could "scare all the kids" in their class. audrey opted for yoda instead (possibly by allie's prompting since audrey also told me she wanted to scare her teacher as darth vader...) my favorite moment was when this little 3 year old boy started talking to me about how he was count dracula and when he noticed audrey he gave her a little head nod and said, "master yoda. nice." lucy agreed to pose for a picture for me, one with her backpack on both shoulders the other on just one shoulder because, "that's how some of the kids at jackie's school do it." kids are way too observant. the highlight of the class so far for lucy was that they were given "homework" (a cut-out turkey to decorate and bring back). she was so proud to sit at the kitchen table with jack working on their homework together.
