First day of school 2014

Here are a few shots from the big first day of second grade. Is our seems more concerned about Halloween and telling me it's about 80 days away.
Today, she was debating how she was going to be able to hold her trick-or-treat bag with the cheerleading pom-poms in her hand. She said she was "deciding" if I should hold her bag for her and if she needs a new trick-or-treat bag or not. I informed her that we aren't purchasing any new Halloween gear and that she had plenty of bags she could even use. In fact I said, " use a pillowcase because you could get more that way."
She responded with "mom, the only way to get MORE is to trick-or-treat longer". Touché

More than just royalties on these pictures.

Singalong fun and icicles

December 2013

It's almost New Year's Eve!

Only 10 school days left til winter break and first grade will be half over! Incredulous!

Winter fest 2013

And today is our first 2 hour delay! We might even have a snow day this week!
I'm having fun catching up zara s blog - as it's been ages.
Zara spent hours making potholders and loom bracelets to sell. She was quite successful, but was angry with me when we had to make change and give money back to customers. Maybe math isn't her strong suit afterall. Then I realized she wanted to keep the higher denominations and wanted me to give the change out of my wallet not her purse! Sneaky child!
Daddy was sore after his .6 mile fun run with her! Good thing they didnt attempt the 5k!

Thanksgivinukkah & the Tenely Yeti!

We managed to even FaceTime aunt Evey on thanksgiving 2013- she's 94 and looked incredibly well- it must be crazy to think of what technologies were available to when she was Zara s age- and here we are in a car in Maryland going 60 mph and chatting on video conference to someone in Arizona!
