Wendi, very cool to the civil war reenactment! I think that would be fun. I hate history, unless I can learn about it like that.
Hilarie, glad you're happy with your containers.
The girls were almost late for the bus. It usually goes past first, then comes back to get them. I'm not sure if we missed it going past, or if the bus is going a different route, but we looked out the window and there it sat. Oops. At least it didnt leave them.
I'm SO not ready. And my fingernails are still plain. What we were trying just wasn't working. Might paint them after the littles leave. (My hours this year are 9:15 to 2:45 with one hour either after that on Thursday or before that on Friday, although I think I'm using it on Tuesday this week to go to the staff meeting since I dont have any books to put on the shelf.)
Laura, that party sounds awesome! You have a water slide with inner tubes?? Cool! Good luck with MIL this week. I hope Lacey has fun with her - or at least that they don't need you too much while you're working. Calla will love camp, I'm sure!
You know, speaking of lunches... We packed lunch for the beach on Saturday. Well, two kids with the lunch boxes we have results in 10+ pieces each. This will be every day. For the whole school year. I've loved our lunch boxes up to this point (with only one kid taking lunch at a time), but I'm thinking of using Ziploc containers this year instead. Bummer, because our lunch boxes are excellent, but really - 10+ pieces per day, every day. UGH. Here are our existing lunch boxes: http://tinyurl.com/8f4r4b4 Here are ones just like the ziploc (except these are better - we might buy these): http://tinyurl.com/968ovk7
I almost forgot why I was posting! Pictures!
Megan's first day of school shots:
Then Allison (because she insisted). We put her hair in curlers last night. Well, by the time we walked to the bus stop and back, her hair was completely straight!!! I assume it's the humidity.
