First Day of First Grade!

School started today! Ava is now in first grade. Her teacher is Mrs. Hedgecock. Ava also has lots of friends from kindergarten in her same class, which I thought was fun and eases the first-day jitters. Again, I love, love, LOVE the fact that we are across the street from school, which makes drop-offs and pick-ups a breeze. Here are some pictures (Ava of course still has her My Little Pony backpack):

Stay tuned for Norah's first day of preschool!

During July I had the opportunity to travel to Seattle to see some good friends and fellow college roommates. Sans kids to boot! (Don't worry - I do miss my girls when I'm away from them, but it having the time to myself did wonders for my sanity).

It was great to see Lisa's lovely home, as well as to finally meet her kids as well as Camilla's kids. Of course it was almost like no time had passed - we even played Ligretto!

Sadly I don't have too many pictures from the trip. I'll have to bum some off of Camilla's FB page.

I just hope the next time we have a roommate reunion that we can ALL be there! Kat, Wendy, Steph, and Becca - you were missed!
