PreK Princess and 3rd Grade Super Star

I can't believe we have a PreK Princess and a big old third grader, so bitter sweet!

I will say, that they flat out rocked the first day of school and are both loving it!  They have wonderful teachers and plenty of friends.  There were no tears, but there were lots of smiles!!  And the best thing, turns out that in PreK, they have PINK Play.doh (that we bought... ha)!!

****I am grateful for
1) first days
2) loving school
3) those big smiles even though we were up earlier than we had been in ages
4) a wonderful summer had by all
5) the first week of school is almost under our bet

5 years, a lifetime ago and yesterday.

Today makes 5 years since we said goodbye to our precious twins.  At times it feels like a lifetime ago, but my heart still aches like it were yesterday.

****I am grateful for
1) my rainbow baby
2) my oldest baby
3) love
4) those things that make us stronger
5) saying goodbye and knowing that one day we'll again say hello

Wordless Wednesday - Our Tiny Ballerina

***I am grateful for
1) a summer filled with new memories
2) my tiny ballerina
3) rain
4) the smell of fresh cut grass
5) morning snuggles (I will so miss this when I'm back at work next week!!!)
