First Day of School


I can't believe it. Pre-school. Twice a week my little girl is off to a world I am not a part of. Well, except that I signed up to be a room mom. :) She loves it already. She loves her teacher, the "craps" (crafts), snack time, play time. She loves being independent. She is growing up so (too) fast. As she walked into her class, I didn't cry. I am just way too excited for her. And for me. Two half-days a week to run errands, work out and clean without a toddler at my heals. Whoopee!!!



Sad to say, Lydia's teacher said that she needs a bigger backpack than the blaba one I got her. No biggie. I took it home, tied up the straps, filled it will pillow filler and made it a throw pillow for her bed.


Though I did like that it matched her lunch box. I got a good one, as I hope it will last a few years. We shall see.

My sister-in-law Sara made these coordinating Kimono shirts for Lydia and Collin. They seemed like a good "first day of school" wardrobe choice. I am impressed she was able to find something that is equally cool for both girls and boys. You can get the tutorial here.

I'm sure there will be many pre-school updates. I will probably be posting most of them on my other blog so as to not overwhelm this one.

And by the way....

CONGRATS to my little sister Abby and her husband Dave on their new addition. A little girl named Paige Abigail. She is such a beauty already! (Of course, with parents as good looking as hers, that isn't a surprise.) This time last year, my mom and dad only had one grandchild. Now they have four. With that, my sister Molly's wedding and my brother's college graduation, it has been a wonderful year for my family.

So fun! I love the first day of school and get excited for my kids too. Congrats on all the wonderful things your family has experienced. I will certainly keep baby Paige in my prayers. And the kimonos are adorable! I'll have to try them.

Too cute! The frog backpack was so fun. Can't they make it bigger? I think you should send in for a special request.
