It never gets old.....and I'm so glad!

The age old game of peek-a-boo never gets old.  Look at these smiles.

Even Lollipop the cat has to get into the action!

Count down to school

It's been too long since my last post.  I realized that I hadn't even posted the girls' July 4th pic---see below.

I now consider my group shots a success if I can get them all three looking forward :-)  All three looking forward with smiles will be my next project.

Hard to believe but school is going to be starting in approx. nine days.  Every year, I feel the same way-I just start to get settled into a summer routine and then BAM! time to get ready to go back to school.  I really don't know why I feel like it sneaks up on me since the stores start putting out school supplies in early July!

This year is a bit different because I'm trying to get myself into the right frame of mind as we embark on our new educational process.  I must admit that I'm a bit nervous.  G is officially enrolled in her new university-model school where she will go to class two days a week and then the other three days we will be working at home, with the guidance and instruction provided by her teacher.  My Type A personality is working in overdrive right now--can I do this?  can I provide her with a well-rounded education? am I going to ruin what she has already learned?  Lots of anxiousness on my part, which I hope I'm not showing to her. 

We've also signed-up for one of the local homeschool coops and she will be taking chorus and theater dance classes and we've signed up to do fall cheerleading.  Then add into that schedule that K will be going to preschool two days a week, Baby M will start having her playdate at Toddlin' Time, and my part-time work schedule.  It's going to be a busy school year!

I love these pics of my girls cuddlin' up together and watchin' a little Sesame Street.  This was one of our quiet moments :-)
