School Time: First Day of School!

Second Grade! Kindergarten! Pre-School! All three of my big kids are in school. I am so proud of them. There were no tears on the first day. A couple of them were a little nervous but went to their classes without any fuss, and at pick up were wearing huge smiles.

When we entered in the gates we were greeted by a man dressed up in a bright colored suit and hat who waited with us till the great magician was ready. When the magician came out we entered into Candytopia! The magician then told us about candytopia as we looked around the room. There were giant clocks hanging from the ceiling. He asked us to find a sp…

Summer Part 2: New York!

We made it back to NYC with a few summer weeks left. We spent our time catching up with friends, lots of playground, pizza eating, ice cream eating, reading, and zoo visits. It is hard to say what our favorite thing was, but pretty much every day was a good day. We got a few more things checked off our summer bucket list.
