First Day of Preschool '09

Getting ready

One more round of 'taking advantage of your 13 month old brother' before we leave. She really was pulling him around like this.

A little too much to handle as we walked into her school. She walked very slowly past her old classroom from last year.

Patient Eli

Taking note of the room. Hardly noticed I left. I actually told her twice I was leaving, just to make sure. Kid didn't blink an eye.

The Simple Life

Sometimes all it takes is a ride on the Merry Go Round, a 25 cent gumball and rubber boots.

This was a few weeks ago. Ken ran a little 5K race in our town, and the route was just one block down the hill from our house. I grabbed the kids in their P.J.'s and we walked down to cheer Ken on. Lucy passed the time by leaving small piles of cereal for the squirrels to eat. I love Lucy's goofy smile and her shoes on the wrong feet. Always on the wrong feet. I usually tell her, but she casually mentions that it's okay, she likes them that way. Eli is looking so cute, and happy and handsome. He'll be glad when he can get out of that stroller on a more regular basis and run around with his sister. Although, she's almost killed him a few times, she really does like having him around.

Worth All Twelve Ninety Nine

Today's activity involved going to Marshall's to buy cheap toys.

I'm out of ideas.

We've hit the dog days of summer.

Eli is teething something fierce and his mood, and the boogers and the heat
rash meant it was time to stay inside.

Lucy bought this doll and it kept her happy all afternoon.

She named it Trader. Most awesome doll name ever. Probably after Trader Joe's. But Ken thought she named it Traitor and I'm all, NO - TRADER!

All hell broke out about 4:30pm. I sent an S.O.S. to Ken at work. Nothing
really new. Usually I can keep the house somewhat together, but not today.
This is what just ONE ROOM looked like BEFORE dinner.

A Day on the Deck

Back by popular demand -- Baby Coffee. And photos. And stories about
Lucy's antics when I have time. For now, a few shots of today and Eli's
introduction to the popsicle.

I'm also testing to see if this emailing a post actually works.
