Three Peas in a Pod ...

My dear friend Peggy gave the kids their first Webkinz, and they love Leo, Harry and Freida!  Yes, I fibbed a bit.  I told them Peggy said they had to sit together and smile for a picture if they wanted to keep them.  It was very painful for them as you can see, but they really wanted to keep their new pets!

First Day of Big ... Class of 2023

Yesterday was the last day of LITTLE and today was the first day of BIG!  Today ... my Littles started Kindergarten, and in a decade plus a few years, they will graduate high school with the Class of 2023.

 (Waiting on the Bus)

This morning was exceptional and I woke them up at 6:30 with a plan to be on the bus at 7:10.  For the first time, they got themselves ready and with backpacks on, we actually were standing at the end of the driveway at 7:05.

We've decided to do breakfast at school every morning so that I don't have to get them up at 5:30 and get them all awake and hungry.  We figure that after a short bus ride they can eat with all of their friends.
