First day of School!

Today was L's first day of 4-year-old Preschool. Can't believe my little girl is growing up so fast! She had a great first day. As per her request, we had cinnamon rolls for breakfast (which I made from scratch using this recipe) and then listened to her new-from-the-library Strawberry Shortcake cd on the way to school.

There are five kids from her class last year that have returned this year, which is awesome. She is also familiar with the teachers from last year. I'm hoping for a great year for her!

Summer Review, Looking Ahead!

School starts again next week, so it's time to get my rear end moving again and start updating this blog more consistently. We ended up having a much busier summer than I expected. Here are some highlights:
L took two sessions of swimming lessons and loved it. She's like me - hates to put her face in the water, but she tried SO hard to be brave and made great progress!

She also celebrated her 4th birthday in July. My baby girl is getting so big!!

Z celebrated his first birthday when we were in Canada. I honestly can't believe how fast the year went by!
Now August is more than half way over and L starts 4-year-old Preschool on Tuesday. Looking forward to the structure that fall brings! Z will be starting therapy August 30th for his food issues: he won't eat anything that isn't pureed, so his dr. has recommended he see a speech therapist to hopefully help him work on his gagging issues. Never a dull moment, and I'm sure there will be a lot to blog about!!
