First day of school

Yes, yes, they're totally overdue - first day of school was a month ago. Sorry!

Max is now a first grader (actually he turned 7 today and I swear he seems taller overnight) and Lily is a brand new pre-K student! Max is so happy with his teacher, she has been teaching for 27 years and seems to have it all down. Homework is scheduled a month in advance and perfect peace reigns in her classroom - HOORAY for Mrs. Tyson!

Lily has a friend (Lucille) who rides with us to and from school every day. They are not in the same class but are happy to be at the same school nonetheless. Unfortunately Max's school doesn't have a pre-K program but the two schools are less than 2 miles apart. A typical Lily-ism "Mommy, I thought you said I would go to school to learn. Mostly we just play and eat." I pity her poor Kindergarten teacher if she doesn't learn fast enough.......

She doesn't look too thrilled in this photo but it's her "posing-hurry-up-and-take-the-photo-smile"


But she really was happy, I promise:

Back in the groove!

There has been a LOT going on since I last posted. The trip to DC took a lot out of all of us, especially considering that we got home late Sunday night, had open house at both of the kids' schools on Monday morning and then had first day of school on Tuesday! I'll be posting the first day photos - albeit very VERY late - later on tonight.

Now that we're into a good routine and the children have recovered from the inevitable germs they brought home from the first few weeks of school, business should be resuming shortly :)
