First Day of School

I'm so happy to say that today was a success. The only glitches were Katelyn waking up before 6 and then smearing peanut butter in her hair at breakfast. I had no idea how they would do with a carpool since at daycare I had been taking them into their classroom. They both did fine! Collin was super excited and even got a little impatient waiting in the carpool line. I don't think Katelyn had time to get upset and realize what was going on. They both had fun and got great reports from their new teachers. Collin was so excited to show me his work in his binder and is ready to go back tomorrow. Katelyn was her usual sweet and quiet self and had fun painting today. And I could get used to the new work schedule. Here are some pictures from our first day adventure!

Up bright and early.

Here we go!
I am one proud mommy!

Just Because

a. I finally backed up all of our photos and formatted my card so I could take more photos.
b. I got a new lens for my camera. It's pretty much the bottom of the line canon zoom lens, but it allows me to be further away from the kids so that they aren't paying attention to me and my camera. Plus it was free through a program from my previous employer so I'm perfectly happy with it!
c. I discovered presets in lightroom which make it tremendously easier to edit photos when you really don't know what you're doing.

d. I just love these kids! (and the dog).

P.S. First day of school post coming Tuesday (yikes!)
