the most wonderful time of the year....


I couldn't resist posting some pictures of the kids on their first day of school today. We have had a great summer full of fun, but let me tell you...it was time to return to routine! Little monkeys were bouncing off the walls this last week or so. AND, it will be nice to find a quiet hour here or there in my own house to do some crafting!

This year was extra monumental in that Last But Not Least started Kindergarten. She is more than ready to follow her siblings to the "big kid school," and it certainly simplifies things for me to have them all in one place, but of course this moment did pull at my heart strings a bit.


I took the day off work and, to celebrate her first day, she and I shared a special "Mommy and Me" afternoon which included her favourite lunch and a trip to do some pottery painting. We made a plate with her handprint to commemorate the big day!





And the "big" kids just keep getting bigger. The Middle Child is now in Second Grade...



...and it is Grade 3 for Big G!


Onward and upward!
