First Day of Second Grade

And Liza starts preschool tomorrow.

We stepped outside this morning to take this photo and there was a cool breeze blowing. Nice change of pace to the hot weather we’ve been subjected to most of the summer. The summer is over and I’m glad to see it go. I’d like very much now to settle into a boring routine for at least six months.

    bah 6 months! I’d be perfectly comfortable with boring being the over-whelming trend for the next 12 to 24 months.

    good luck to y’all on that.

    Whoa! Where did you find the hooded Perry the Platypus backpack?! Aidan would KILL for that. Instead I had to convince him to get the plain blue and grey and green one because it’s a “big boy backpack”.
