Back to School

It was a good day for both the kids. Brianna is loving 2nd grade and Kai is doing so well with his peers and teacher. After the first day of bawling for 4 hours, I realized that going to the store and to dr. appointments without any kids in tow is not too shabby....:)

Optimus Prime! Brianna was pretty much devestated to have to use the same backpack this year. I just couldn't justify buying a new one when hers was only used 1/2 of the year last year.

These shoes will never be this clean again...

He found these in his class and plays with them every morning

Overall, we're doing well:)

So I just can't believe how *old* Brianna is looking! I thought it was just the last photos you posted, just a fluke. But it happened again! Wow, she is growing up fast!

Just so you know, we are on YEAR THREE of the same backpacks and lunchboxes. The LLBean investment was totally worth it and whenever my kids complain about not having something new (they don't care about the backpacks so far) I always tell them they are welcome to buy their own with their own money. In the meantime "fix it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without"
