Yerba Buena and the balloon

We never made it to the Bay Area Discovery Museum on Monday, but Ella and I did make it downtown, did a little shopping, had lunch and met mommy at Yerba Buena.  It was another beautiful day and Ella played hard!  She still has a cold and cough so we decided to skip ballet.  Here are some pictures of Ella from yesterday.

Ella’s school is off this week for winter break but Sunny and I can’t take off work so we enrolled Ella at the camp at her school.  On Monday night, as I was putting her to bed, we were talking about camp and the teachers who were going to be there.  I told her about 2 teachers who are from her class and one teacher from another class.  She got a little teary and said, “I only want to teachers from my class – I have an idea, let’s skip camp.”  It was so sweet and so sad.  I told her that I promised to talk to the teachers that she knew and to ask them to give Ella some extra love.  She thought that was a good idea.  Today when Ella got to camp, she ran into the room, sat down and immediately began an art project.  I guess she got over her hesitation.  She said she had a great time.

Here are some pictures from tonight of Ella playing “volleyball” with a balloon.  I took Ella to my school on Friday to watch some of the kids that I work with play volleyball.  I guess she liked what she saw.

    Seems like a beautiful day. I love that Ella is playing volley ball. She’s a natural athlete like you and Sunny. Love you. Mom
