All the colors of the rainbow

We spent most of the day yesterday hanging out at the house. Summer got to enjoy her PawPaw's company while I did some things around the house. She loved playing with him outside drawing pictures with chalk and riding bikes around the driveway. She will not go out in the street right now which is probably a good thing anyway. At least I know I don't have to worry about her taking off and getting ran over, right? She has had a couple of topples the last few days, a few of which were on the street, and her knees are not looking their best right now. We can't find her knee and elbow pads anywhere. We have been searching though and I'm sure they will turn up eventually, probably sooner if I go out and buy some new ones. :)

Yesterday, when we were in Walmart, she saw a bell for a bike on a helmet we walked past. Of course, now she wants one. I thought I got her one for Christmas, but if so it got lost before I gave it to her. Her birthday is coming up though so I guess I can add it to the list of a million things she wants. What she needs is a different story all together, but as they say, "out with the old, in with the new." It's time to donate some toys again!

I can't believe she is almost 5 years old. It's such a milestone: old enough to have to go to school. But, at least she is ready now. I told her yesterday she had to wear uniforms to school and she did not seem too excited. She definitely has her own fashion sense and likes to pick out what she wants to wear. I, on the other hand, am relieved it won't be a big hassle everyday. I don't actually know what the uniforms are exactly, but I hope to find out soon so I can start looking for them.

This morning when Summer got up, I asked her if she had some bad dreams because I thought I heard her cry out a few times in the night. She said she didn't remember any bad dreams. She did remember having one about a unicorn. She is drawing a picture of one for her book right now. The other day she started a book that will be filled with pictures that she colors. Now it looks like there will be drawings in the book too. I'm not sure if she decided she was going to make a book because I outlawed tearing pages out of coloring books a while back or if she really just wanted to make a book. She has made a few books before so I wouldn't be surprised if it were the latter. She picked out a yellow folder for the cover of the book from the rainbow of options we had. I'm sure it will be full of masterpieces in no time. PawPaw has made some contributions as well. He and Summer love to color and paint together.

Well, it looks like she is taking a break from the unicorn. Time for breakfast. I wonder what she will eat today. Grilled cheese, turkey sandwich, sausage biscuits? With my luck, probably none of the above. One things is for sure, she won't be eating the blueberry pancakes I'm making for myself and my dad. She says she doesn't like them.

P.S. All the colors of the rainbow is Summer's favorite color :D
