Finally

We were in Maine all of last week. I'll post about that after I sort through the hundreds of photos from the trip.
In other news, today was Chloe's first day of kindergarten. (Everyone else started last week but we were gone--oops.) While she was at school Stella played at Annie's and Fred took a long nap. It was nice and quiet. No my-baby-is-growing-up tears were shed.



We compromised with a blue (instead of pink) Camp Rock backpack. I guess you shouldn't take your kid to the store with you if you want them to have a character/disney-free bag.

You've moved to the next phase of motherhood, having a school aged kid. I remember feeling like I'd joined a new club.
I let the kids pick out their lunch boxes/bags and it was nearly impossible to find a girl one with out Princesses or Hannah Montana. Eliza was worried about being teased, so she finally tracked down a "cool" purple with no characters.
Congrats Chloe. FINALLY!!!!

You always get the best photos! Chloe looked so stinkin' cute on her first day of school. I'm glad I'll get to see your cute kids grown up through your blog.

Enjoy kindergarten. It's such a great transition for kids and moms. Chloe looks so cute and ready to conquer the big school!
