Beginnings and Endings

I've never been good at either. I'm a status quo kind of girl. Here's hoping Mister can manage them a little better than I've been able to. So far, the outlet looks good:

The First Day of School--Mister, kindergarten; Sweetie, preschool


And the requested "First Day of School" Cake. (Cranked out very quickly--darn that Mrs. Turtle in the Franklin Goes to School book we read last night, making her son his own fly pie as a first day of school treat. Way to put ideas in my kids' heads!) It's supposed to look like a book, so squint a little, please.


The Last Brother/Sister Bathtime
Yeah, yeah, so maybe this ending should have come earlier. But I just couldn't bring myself to cut off the fantastic foam creations or the scuba diving expeditions and other such fun. Privacy schmivacy (in the past, that is). So here they are with their secret agent rubber duckies who have wisely doned foam suction cups to scale the slippery tub walls. Sorry, secret agent ducks, you'll be swimming solo from here on out.

Today's Top 3

1. Bedtime cuddles, with Mister recapping his school day: "he said, . . . then she said, . . . then he did . . ."
2. Giggling with my kids at Shel Silverstein's CD of "A Light in the Attic."
3. A monsoon! Love the lightning.

Way to go mom, you survived the first day of school! They are too cute, and ready for these new experiences. The beginning of a mountain of "firsts" is here!

I forget AZ starts so much earlier than us! Still a few weeks to go here. Little Mister, in K now, I can't believe it! So exciting for him though.

They are both so cute, and getting so big! How fun--I love the start of school, and always have. Backpacks, new shoes, pencils and erasers...I could go on and on.

Lots of firsts going on at your house!
