A Visit from Toby

We recently had a special guest at our house: Toby the bear from Stella's class at St. Timothy's.  Stella was supposed to take Toby home at the end of her "I Am Special" week, but since she got a very special stomach virus and stayed home most of the week, we got him on Monday night.  Luckily we were heading to a make-up gymnastics class, so we had plenty of fun things to show Toby.  He and Cille helped Stella shuck her shoes and socks and get ready for class...
One last pose together before class started...
Cille was kind enough to babysit Toby while Stella was busy...
Toby was very impressed by Stella's flips.  He was not very impressed by her mom's photography skills, since this is the best shot I got of her flip in progress...
Pretending to be a helicopter...
After gymnastics, it was time for Toby to make some new friends.  He met Mawmaw and Pawpaw through FaceTime...

After all that fun Toby was pretty tired, so he and Stella snuggled up for the night in her big girl bed...
The next morning they dressed alike for the trip back to school...

That is so cute. I remember doing that in the 1st grade. We had a GIANT California Raisin that we all took home for a week or so. We then had to write an adventure story. I absolutely loved it. Too cute to see Stella with Toby.
