First Day of School

Today was Lucy's first day of Preschool.  She is asserting that she is nervous, but we all suspect it is just excitement.  Actually, the reason she kept giving for not wanting to go was that she didn't like wearing a name tag on the first week of school because it bothered her neck and she couldn't read the other names anyway.  She's funny.  And particular.  But so social and so smart.  She will have a great year.  And Reid was a little lost today without Lucy for a couple hours, but it will be a good experience for him!

Blogging

I thought I had moved on from blogging, but this is a really important medium for me to keep things organized and remember the sequence and narrative of things.  I take a lot of iPhone pictures, but the ones from my camera often have no home...

Family Pictures









We traded family pictures this year with another family - we took their's and they took ours.  We had a good time and I really like how they turned out.  The kids are at a such a cute stage but it is also a very busy season of life.  I hope I emerge from the chaos of toddler years with a clear memory of how fun it was too.  At this moment in life 
Mike {is loved at his job and offered new positions regularly * serves with the teachers quorum and has found that his sarcastic and yet quiet humor has connected with several boys * is a softy and lets the kids sleep in our bed more often than not}
Lucy {is learning a lot about and becoming passionate about helping others less fortunate * is beautifully articulate and so adept at negotiating with logic that his hard to argue with * doesn't feel cold, ever * loves my little ponies, her scooter, her big stuffed dog, and puppets * likes to help with everything}
Reid {climbs on everything * jumps off of everything * is just starting to mimic words * seems to only eat applesauce and milk * cuddles with Mike for a long time a night * wakes up early}
