We went from this:

To This:

No one told me that this would happen and I never even remember blinking.

No one told me how much it would hurt or how proud I would be or how wonderful it is to watch.

Or how much I would need a slow motion button.

Daily Life

Today I made up a batch of Pomodoro Sauce - love that! I also made some Cheese and Sausage biscuits with leftover sausage from the weekend, they are in the freezer for quick breakfasts in the morning.

This very short week had us:
1) At our first Back to School Night! Exciting.
2) Practicing new routines with the bus and daycare
3) cleaning out junk drawers, garage, tupperware drawer, etc
4) Laundry - how is it possible to do 2 loads of laundry a day? I WISH I KNEW!
5) Trying to put together a plan of attack for the kids with a boys weekend coming up and a new job starting.

Boring, but our life.

This is Aubrey last Friday, LOVE this picture, don't know why!

Foggy River

On our way back from dropping Molly off at school, I asked Doug to stop so I could grab shots of the river near our house. I love the FOG!

The Bus

Aubrey road the bus for her first full day of Kindergarten. Is it wrong that I want to call the school and make sure she got there? With her lunch box? And her smile still in tact?

Headed down the driveway.
The girls!

I love that Aubrey turned back here - since she didn't once she got on the bus!
The bus driver told Aubrey to turn so I could take a picture :)

I cried.

Maryland State Fair 2010 Edition

Different visit this year as the girls were older, we went with friends, we went later in the evening than past years. We didn't hit the Cow Palace, see the horses, see the Scales, or any other building. We did see the petting area, and eat in the Maryland area (my favorite). And we rode rides. And we made our kids cry because the games people would pretend to hand the kids a beanbag or dart and then pull it away when we wouldn't hand over our life savings.

And of course the ice cream. ICE CREAM that is so good, so good you can't describe. From milk, from cows, that we SAW get milked (or so I like to believe).

Notable fact, first year at the fair WITHOUT A STROLLER!

Pics from my phone cause I left my camera in the car...
