more camera futzing

You might have to click on the picture to see it full-size in order to read her shirt, which I wanted to get a picture of her in before she outgrew it.
This is the face of a kid who is Gluten-Free. And almost *sigh* five.
Today was officially kindergarten registration day, which is where all of the rising k-garten kids and their parents tour the rooms, meet the teachers and take a quicky skills test (the kids took the test, that is. I suspect the test for the parents was just to get there.)
The Diva has made it quite clear that she is against this whole big school thing. She'll do it, since we've made it pretty clear that there are no other options, but has wanted it to be known is only doing this under protest and only because her parents have this crazy notion about school that she will deign to humor. Last night, she also let me know that today's events were scary, which is completely understandable.
As it turns out, once she got there, all was forgotten. All three of us sat and drew a picture, then she and her friend O. went skipping off to the playground. I figured we'd be in for a fight or tears or both when the guidance counselor led her away for the evaluation but -- nada. She actually smiled and waved at everyone as we were leaving and admitted that it will be fun to go there in the fall.
That doesn't negate the fact that Scott and I are completely full of crazy notions, in her opinion. Just that we're been given a pass on this particular topic.
